Announcing the release of Shared Visualization 1.1 software
By Linda Fellingham on Apr 04, 2008
Sun Shared Visualization 1.1 software is, at long last, ready for download on the Sun DownLoad Center.
Some people wear ties everyday or don't cut their hair, until a milestone is met, but I just stopped writing in my blog until I could say that Sun Shared Visualization 1.1 is ready for download at http://www.sun.com/download/products.xml?id=465f0f01
So, why am I so excited about Shared Visualization 1.1? We got a lot of feedback from our original release of Shared Viz that it was really cool that one could now run high performance 3D graphics applications from Sun Rays and laptops, BUT it was a pain to install and configure. The combination of trying to maintain security while achieving performance meant that a LOT of complex configuration had to be done on the server and using it from the client wasn't completely straightforward. Our main goal for Shared Viz 1.1 was to make installation, configuration, and start-up simple and bullet-proof. I think we've got it! We've finally got it!
Shared Viz 1.1 is based on VirtualGL 2.1.
