The new version 0.9.5-R1 of the free open-source, cross-platform 3D application framework PixelLight has been released. OpenGL is used within the main renderer. Beside the usual bugfixing and feature completion, there are several migrations in this release. PixelLight is now using 'nullptr' introduced by C++0x, migrated from C style casts to C++ style casts and under MS Windows, Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 is now used as the main development IDE. There are also new features like the plugin SPARK_PL integrating the free open source particle engine SPARK. The SDK now includes two new demos, one of them shows how picking works.

An introductory tutorial using the Khronos EGL API and EAGL--the EGL API implemented by Apple. This tutorial will show you how to set up an OpenGL’s application to comunicate with the device’s windowing system. Focus is placed on Objective-C and iOS.
CMSoft Stereoscopic Picture Editor and Converter is a tool designed to view 3D photographs using OpenGL to render the stereo pair in an animated form called "wiggle stereo", with zoom and crop capabilities. Advanced users can also create their own custom filters in C language using OpenCL technology.
