After many months of work, we’re proud to announce the release today of X3DOM 1.2. There’s plenty of cool stuff we have worked on since the last release. You can also swing by the downloads page to grab a copy of the release package.
The new version supports an additional render-backend. The system now looks for a Flash11 plugin if the browser does not provide a SAI-Plugin or WebGL interface. This enables the user to view X3DOM pages, with some restrictions, using the Internet Explorer 9 browser. It utilizes the Adobe Flash MoleHill 3D-API for GPU-Accelerated rendering. To use Adobe Flash-based X3DOM you need the latest Adobe Flash Player Incubator build (11.01.3d).
x3dom.swf must either be placed in the same folder as your
xhtml/html files, or you can specify a path with the swfpath-Parameter of the X3D-Node. With the X3D-Nodes backend-Parameter you can set Flash as default backend.
