New version of view3dscene, an open-source VRML/X3D browser, is available on


New features of release 3.14.0 include TextureBackground support (you 
can e.g. put MovieTexture on a skybox, yay!), better 2D controls (like 
anti-aliased text), and support for standard AWSD keys for movement 
(together with mouse look, under Ctrl+M, this allows to move in a 
virtual scene like in games).

Probably more impressive is the list of new features of our engine. 
Castle Game Engine is an open-source game engine using modern Object 
Pascal, focused on excellent support for X3D/VRML (with many extensions, 
like for shader effects, screen-space effects, shadows etc.). 
view3dscene internally uses Castle Game Engine for all X3D/VRML 
processing and rendering. Our new features include support for Android 
and iOS (iPhone, iPad) platforms! The engine page, with links to 
downloads and documentation, is on


For fun, try also our game "Darkest Before the Dawn",


Available for Android (from Google Play), Linux and Windows. Of course 
open-source, with all the 3D data of course in X3D :)

The full list of changes, with screenshots and everything, is on


Enjoy! :)
