TNGViewer 1.3.0.563 vastly extends file format support and more

Immaginaria Ltd is proud to announce a major update to TNGViewer, featuring support for the Open Asset Import Library, which provides access to several different 3D file formats. These include modo .lxo, DirectX .x, Stanford Polygon Library .ply, Stereolithography .stl, Object File Format .off and many more. importing COLLADA .dae files is also much improved; previously supported types such as 3D Studio .3ds, Alias|Wavefront .obj and so on are imported better as well. File formats that contain keyframe and skinning animation use dynamic OpenGL VBOs for performance. Furthermore, a fallback Direct3D 9 renderer is available on Windows, on any machine without decent OpenGL drivers. Finally, several interface and display issues have been fixed on Windows and Mac OS X.

Qt Labs experimenting with OpenCL

Introducing the QtOpenCL library, which wraps the OpenCL 1.0 API in a Qt-style API. It takes the pain out of OpenCL initialization, program compilation, and kernel execution. It also provides convenience functions for interfacing to existing Qt facilities such as QImage and QtOpenGL. QtOpenCL is still a work in progress, distributed as a standalone module outside of the normal Qt source repositories.

ATI FirePro V8800 brings ultra high end performance OpenCL & Eyefinity to workstation graphics

The new ATI FirePro V8800, the workstation equivalent to the Radeon HD 5870, provides 1600 stream processors for more than double the computational power of it's predecessor (V8750) - 2.6 Teraflops!, 2GB GDDR5 RAM, 4 Display Port outputs, Stereo3D, CrossFire Pro support, and Windows & Linux drivers. For this new FirePro line, AMD is strongly emphasizing support for OpenGL 4 and OpenCL open standards. Performance reviews are already out from HotHardware and most notably 3DProfessor. General consensus is: performance at a completely new level.

Interview with Arun Ranganathan from Mozilla on Firefox and WebGL

One of Mozilla's Principal Engineers, Vladimir Vukicevic originally wrote the Canvas3D extension, which was a precursor to the WebGL work. Fairly wide support for the HTML5 Canvas element by modern browsers, along with increasing support for OpenGL ES by various hardware drivers, lead us to conclude that the time was right for a 3D drawing context within the HTML5 Canvas element.

OpenCL Studio 1.0 beta released

Geist Software Labs has released the first version of OpenCL Studio for beta testing. OpenCL Studio combines OpenCL and OpenGL into a single integrated development environment that allows you to visualize OpenCL computation using powerful 3D rendering techniques. The editor hides much of the complexity of the underlying APIs while still providing flexibility via the Lua scripting language. Integrated source code editors and debugging capabilities for OpenCL, GLSL, and Lua, as well as a toolbox of 2D user interface widgets provide a framework for a wide range of parallel programming solutions.
