We've just released a new version of the Sun Shared Visualization software. It is available for download from the Sun Download Center. Just go to /www/sun.com/download and select "Shared Visualization" under the High Performance Computing category.
Sun Shared Visualization software includes VirtualGL and TurboVNC and integrates it with Sun Grid Engine software to provide the capability to run Solaris and Linux OpenGL applications on a central resource with high-performance graphics, while interacting and viewing from a wide variety of clients, including Sun Ray thin clients.
It also provides the ability for remote users to collaborate in viewing and running the 3D application.
Some of the features of this release are:
-- additional platform support:
OS/X 10.5 "Leopard"
-- fixes for application-specific issues
Catia V4 (SPARC)
-- improved performance and decreased bandwidth usage for TurboVNC
-- improved performance of VirtualGL on Solaris platforms
