Innovation on the Desktop
By MortazaviBlog on Dec 20, 2006
Bernard Traversat tells us about a new release of the Looking Glass Project.
Looking Glass is a 3D GUI desktop environment that provides robustness and stability for most of the 3D window effects. The 1.0 release gives the user better performance, support for JDK 1.6 and Java 3D 1.5, ease of installation with the mega bundle distributions for Solaris X86, Linux and wWindow. Bernard says that his team contributed lot of the X extensions to X.org. They also now have a Netbeans module for Looking Glass.
Innovations on the desktop do not come often and this one is worth a close, serious look.
