New version of OpenGL viewer for Mathematica

Dear MathGroup

I'm happy to annonce the new version 1.2 of my OpenGL based viewer for
Mathematica's 3d graphics.

The viewer program runs under MS-Windows and Unix. Compiled binaries for
MS-Windows, SPARC/Solaris and Linux are included.

*The program is free software ! *

The Unix archive comes with the
complete source code. User with a native OpenGL hardware support can
compile the program. The unix version uses Brian Paul's free MesaGL
library and GLUT 3.6.

New features in the 1.2 version are:

- graphical viewpoint and light source editing - import of DXF files
into the program as well as into Mathematica - smooth shaded,
resolution independent PostScript output - snap shoots of the render
window can be saved as PNG bitmaps - the contents of the render window
can pasted into Mathematica notebooks - improved support for surface
colors in the render window and in the
  POVRay  export option
- reading and writing of Geomviews OFF files   - bug fixes in the free
spining and rotation of objects - bug fix in the light calculation
- the MS-Windows version come with a setup program - the manual with
examples where extended to document the new
Until the update is on MathSource You can see a feature list, screen
shots and a picture gallery from my homepage

if You select the MathGL3d link. You can download the self extracting
executable with the setup program for MS-Windows and the unix archive
from that location as well.

I hope that the program has not so many bugs, but if anyone finds a bug
mail me with "MATHGL3D BUG" as subject.

Enjoy the program
