Dear Mathematica Users,

I'm happy to announce version 2.2 of the free OpenGL based viewer
for Mathematica's 3d graphic. 

| MathGL3d has now a Macintosh version  |

The new version allows polygon reduction,
offer a better support for the creation of animations and simple
3d axes.

The other features of the OpenGL Viewer for Mathematica are:

  - interactive 3d graphics
  - export to POVRay, VRML 2.0, QuickDraw3D, DXF, smooth shaded
PostScript, PNG export
  - textures form Mathematica graphics, RasterArrays[] and PNG bitmaps
  - interactive light source and view point manipulation
  - import of 3Script and DXF files
  - a reference and a tutorial notebook and full Help Browser support
  - palettes for the most commands and the texture options

The most work in the new version where spend to produce a Macintosh
MathGL3d now supports
  - Windows 95/98 and Windows NT
  - Linux, SPARC Solaris and IRIX 6.3
  - MacOS

with precompiled binaries. The Macintosh version needs the Mesa for Mac
runs also with the OpenGL librays from Conix. A version with the OpenGL
Apple is in progress.
Since it comes with the full source code it should compile on any Unix
system with OpenGL support.

I'm sure that MathGL3d will run perfect with future versions of

The MathSource items will be updated soon and MathGL3d can also
downloaded from

Enjoy the new MathGL3d version
