Freshmeat page:


3Dwm is a three-dimensional workspace manager that can run on immersive Virtual Reality hardware (such as CAVEs and HMDs) as well as on desktop computers. It is a platform for the research and development of three-dimensional user interfaces, providing a means of exploring possible future user interfaces. It also interfaces with X11 to provide necessary backwards compatibility with legacy applications. Other planned and implemented features include accelerated realtime 3D rendering using OpenGL, Cavelib support, 3D TrueType fonts (probably using FreeType), CORBA distribution, general streaming movie support, 3DUI widget kit, etc.

3Dwm is being developed as a research project at Chalmers Medialab, and has close ties with the Berlin project.

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.

If you're a C programmer with some spare time, take a look at the mod_virgule project page and help us with one of the tasks on the ToDo list!
