irrEdit 0.7.1 released

I just released irrEdit 0.7.1. There are some useful changes and additions in it, one is a frequently user requested feature, a 3D grid:

It is a bit transparent by default, but this as well as its size and color is configurable. Other new features include the 3D sound scene node (using irrKlang of course), as I already showed using this video, or Ogre 1.4 .mesh loading support. Happy downloading.

twelve comments, already:

i can’t wait to try it out… :-)

This is starting to look really great, Niko! Keep up the good work!

Looks like we will never see the source. Good work anyway.

a question:
irrEdit is great, and I always see very nice scene (nicely modeled, and textured(!)). What model editor do you use for creating models and that open it in irrEdit. I know that Irrlicht support alot of models, but I don’t know which models most supported (at least ability to import: mesh, texture coordinates and animation).

Please, give me advice: what editor? and what format of model files?

P.S.: sorry for possible offtopic.

Thank You.

giacomo: the source is available, for about a week now, but maybe not in the way you wanted:

Looks like we will never see the Linux version. Good work anyway.

Two suggestions – remember last directory of opened model etc (including when restarting the program) – option for smooth FPS camera. instead of moving in discrete steps

btw, shouldnt the namespace be “klang”, not “audio” ;)

2nd for a Linux version of irrEdit… I don’t want to reboot every time.

I reckon give Linux support a complete skip. Why would anyone want to use irrEdit on Linux??? I use Linux personally for many projects, but 3d anything is last on my list of things I want to do on Linux.

Why would anyone want to use win32 for me…

I tried to quickly write a dirty linux version of irrEdit (even using wine), but the way currently Irrlicht uses rendering into mutliple windows doesn’t work nicely with OpenGL. But I’ll try again later.
