Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard)

Release: WiiMote Control, v20071201

Release Type: Beta
Version: 20071201
Release Notes

I've apparently fixed the connectivity issues that would crash the WiiMote Control patch. I'm not sure how stable it is, and there are a number of things I still need to fix (nunchuk support, better IR support, atan2 [harder than I initially thought], etc) before a production public release. But for you early adopters, this might be useful :)

Release: GL Tools, v20071126

Release Type: Beta
Version: 20071126
Release Notes

Yet another GLTools beta (I'm starting to think this will never end! :) — Lots of performance enhancements.

  • CGL Macros are now used, for context-switch-free operation (this prevents flickering when transparent windows are moved over the rendering window, finally!)
  • GL Point now supports ARB_point_sprite
  • Context Info has two additional outputs: point texture minimum and maximum size. Context Info is also context-clean now too (it was changing the context on init, so I missed that one when doing context cleaning)
  • compiler now uses relaxed IEEE floating point standards (-ffast-math for you gcc junkies). This should result in marginally higher frame rates, but might also cause some problems in weird corner cases. Please let me know if this happens, and I'll change it back.

Release: GL Tools, v20071125

Release Type: Beta
Version: 20071125
Release Notes

This beta addresses some GL Errors in GL Point and GL Line. A portion of the glstate wasn't being preserved as it should have been.

Release: Spooky Send/Receive, v0.1

Release Type: Production
Version: 0.1
Release Notes
Warning: These patches are now part of DataTools. Use that plugin instead.

This is the initial release of our "Spooky" patch plugin for Leopard.

Included are two patches:

  • Spooky Send
  • Spooky Receive

Whatever you provide to the sender becomes available to the receiver. You can "tune" each sender and receiver to have multiple pairs. Multiple receivers can listen to the same sender. If multiple senders are on the same channel, the one with the highest Layer Number prevails.

As an added bonus, multi-patch applications that make use of this patch can actually pass data Between Different Renderers — that's right, you can tie all your compositions together with this patch set. Apparently this is possible ;)

This patch is named after quantum entanglement, sometimes described as "Spooky Action."

Release: GL Tools, v20071119

Release Type: Beta
Version: 20071119
Release Notes

This is likely to be the last Beta of GL Tools before an official release, provided no other issues are discovered.

The Polygon Mode errors caused by other GL Tools patches have been fixed (via super aggressive GL state saving/restoration). Compile options were also changed to optimize more (don't know how that got turned off ...), so it might be a tiny bit snappier.

Next up, backporting it all to Tiger...
