Irrlicht 1.4beta out now

Posted on:October 01 2007

Yee-ha, Irrlicht 1.4beta is out. A short excerpt from the news on irrlicht.sf.net, what's new:

  • A rewritten unified skeletal animation system with some more sophisticated long awaited features such as manual joint animation.
  • Irrlicht's own file format: .irrmesh, for static meshes.
  • Mesh writing support: Write collada, .stl and .irrmesh files. Irrlicht now can also read .stl files and be used to convert any file it can read into these file formats.
  • Enhanced Particle System reintegrated from the irrSpintz fork
  • Improved GUI: Keyboard control support (tab, shift etc), SpinBox
  • PointSprite support
  • Improved collada, .obj, .my3d and loaders

Yes, this release is a beta, not the final 1.4 version yet, so be careful. I also updated the Irrlicht team page a bit, for those who are interested.
Thanks to all who made this release possible!

It's always good to see a new Irrlicht release. As much as I like seeing advancement in new projects like irrEdit or irrKlang, Irrlicht remains the nitty-gritty. I was almost worried that there was too much distraction with these side projects. Good work niko and everyone else who worked on this!

Niko, I would like to hear about your findings on how the transition from one-man-project to team-effort, and how hard it was/is to get everything coordinated and/or to get people to join in on the project rather than fork. I think many developers would be interested in that.

Thanks for putting the pictures of the devs. Bitplane and Hybrid are both younger than what I thought! lol
