Dear X3D community,

the X3DOM team is pleased to announce stable release 1.6 of the X3DOM Library (x3dom.org<http://x3dom.org/>)!

With version 1.6, we hope to make X3DOM more flexible, stable and well-documented.

These are the most important changes:

  *   A completely new documentation portal, available via the link from www.x3dom.org and directly via doc.x3dom.org<http://doc.x3dom.org/>
     *   Extensive node API documentation resources, including detailed information about all nodes and fields
     *   A lot of great, new tutorials, along with a brand-new "Getting Started" guide
  *   A first version of the new x3dom examples portal, available at examples.x3dom.org<http://examples.x3dom.org/>
     *   All former examples from the x3dom repository can now be found at this central example page
     *   A fresh re-design of the examples page will be available in the near future
  *   Automated nightly testing suite for improved stability and qualitiy assurance, available at testing.x3dom.org<http://testing.x3dom.org/>
     *   Testing for Chrome and Firefox (Windows 8)
     *   Regression test suite, based on script result evaluation and explicit screenshot comparisons
     *   Automation and documentation (timeline) for testing process
  *   New DOM field interface for more efficient field access, using getFieldValue / setFieldValue and requestFieldRef / releaseFieldRef (documentation: doc.x3dom.org/author/index.html<http://doc.x3dom.org/author/index.html>)
  *   New onoutputchange event, for easy handling of ROUTE output in JavaScript
     *   can be installed on any node
     *   tutorial available at doc.x3dom.org/tutorials/animationInteraction/onoutputchange/index.html<http://doc.x3dom.org/tutorials/animationInteraction/onoutputchange/index.html>
  *   Gamma-correct lighting by default
     *   Example and tutorial at doc.x3dom.org/tutorials/lighting/gamma/index.html<http://doc.x3dom.org/tutorials/lighting/gamma/index.html>
  *   A new TURNTABLE mode for more intuitive user interaction
     *   Example and tutorial available at doc.x3dom.org/tutorials/animationInteraction/navigation/index.html<http://doc.x3dom.org/tutorials/animationInteraction/navigation/index.html>
  *   First version of the pointingDeviceSensor component, including PlaneSensor, TouchSensor and CylinderSensor
     *   Example and tutorial available at doc.x3dom.org/tutorials/animationInteraction/transformations/index.html<http://doc.x3dom.org/tutorials/animationInteraction/transformations/index.html>
  *   First version of a new, long-lasting Shape Resource Container and ExternalGeometry node
     *   documentation of progress available www.x3dom.org/src/<http://www.x3dom.org/src/>
     *   will be enriched with new features for compression and streaming during development of X3DOM 2.0
     *   will replace ImageGeometry, BinaryGeometry and POPGeometry in X3DOM 2.0

  *   Instead of permanently linking to the dev version, from now on, we recommend to always use the latest stable release, which is available via the following links:
     *   xwww.x3dom.org/download/x3dom.js<http://x3dom.org/download/x3dom.js>
     *   www.x3dom.org/x3dom/release/x3dom.js<http://www.x3dom.org/x3dom/release/x3dom.js>

Thanks a lot for all your community support, and for using X3DOM for your 3D graphics applications on the Web!
