OpenSceneGraph 3.2.1 stable release provides a number of bug and build fixes to the 3.2.0 stable release
PERTHSHIRE, Scotland - 4th July 2014 - OpenSceneGraph Professional Services announces the release of OpenSceneGraph 3.2.1, the industry's leading open-source scene graph technology, designed to accelerate application development and improve 3D graphics performance. OpenSceneGraph 3.2.1 written entirely in Standard C++ and built upon OpenGL, offers developers working in the visual simulation, game development, virtual reality, scientific visualization and modeling markets - a real-time visualization tool which eclipses commercial scene graph toolkits in functionality, stability and performance. OpenSceneGraph 3.2.1 runs on all Microsoft Windows platforms, Apple OS/X, IOS, GNU/Linux, Android, IRIX, Solaris, HP-UX, AIX and FreeBSD operating systems.
Open-source development delivers industry-leading features and performance
The OpenSceneGraph 3.2.1 stable release is the culmination of 15 years of work by the open-source community that has grown up around the project. This point release is fully binary compatible with the 3.2.0 stable release. The changes made are focused on addressing bugs and improving build support for latest compilers, OS updates and 3rd changes to Party Libraries.
