Fixes and Enhancements
We are proud to announce a 1.6.1 release of X3DOM. This release mainly contains some new features, fixes and corrections since the last 1.6 release. It is a maintenance update and recommended for all 1.6 users.
Fixes and Enhancements
This month, X3DOM celebrates its 4th anniversary!
As a little “present”, we are proud to announce a 1.5.1 release of X3DOM. This release mainly contains fixes and corrections since the last 1.5 release. It is a maintenance update and recommended for all 1.5 users.
Most notable are the fixed bind behavior for transformed Viewpoint nodes, Viewfrustum matrix corrections, basic multi-touch support for other navigation types than examine, two new navigation modes, a beta version of DepthMode, BlendMode and ColorMaskMode, better normal map support in CommonSurfaceShader (if the “OES_standard_derivatives” extension is available), and last but not least support for 32-bit indices given that the new “OES_element_index_uint” extension is available. For a detailed list of changes please also refer to the CHANGELOG file.
We are proud to announce the release of X3DOM 1.5. This most recent installment of our popular Declarative3D polyfill shines with lots of new features and a wagon load full of bugfixes.
With version 1.5, X3DOM also overcomes some limits of the scenegraph structure by using new internal structures for culling and fast rendering, decoupled from the frontend graph inside the DOM, which, however, still remains intact as usual.
For a detailed list of changes refer to the CHANGELOG file.

We have started a new project for online model conversion, which can be found on GitHub, too. It is an 3D model optimization and sharing service especially for the cultural heritage domain. The system is written in Python and allows optimization and conversion of 3D models for Web presentation and sharing these models on the Web. Its main features are:
This project was supported by V-Must, an EU-funded project that aims to provide the heritage sector with the tools and support to develop Virtual Museums that are educational, enjoyable, long-lasting, and easy to maintain. The developed code is open-source and you can just grab it from GitHub, where you also find everything to get started.
So finally: 1 day before christmas we did it!
Here is our next stable release after half a year of development
We have worked on bug fixing and added some new features!
General work we did
Bug fixes & new Features
With the new component model in X3DOM we have added the first two components, not natively included in our core profile
We wish you all a merry christmas, a happy new year and that we all make use of our good intentions.
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.
Second stable release after almost 7 month.
Most features from the 1.1. milestone are implemented:
Recently there have been several changes in the WebGL-API (e.g. interface changes in texImage2D() method, replacement of old WebGL array types with the new TypedArray specification, enforcement of precision modifiers in shader code, and changed behavior of NPOT textures). This leads to incompatibilities with previous versions, why the 1.0 X3DOM release does no longer work together with recent browser versions.
The proposed HTML profile is almost implemented:
Next release (V1.2) will focus on faster and better basic picking and collision methods to get more HTML-Events and the missing navigation modes (FLY, WALK, LOOKAT).
First stable release of the framework.
All initially planned features are implemented:
The proposed HTML profile is partially implemented:
The fallback-model is also only partially implemented:
Next release (v1.1) will focus on the following topics:
