The 2.8.0 Q2 2016 release of InstantReality focuses on tool chain as well as service platform updates and improvements.

The toolchain improvements focus on support for auxiliary attributes and data. Auxiliary attributes can be a description of parts or their measures. Auxiliary data can be a set of viewpoints or cutting planes. These auxiliary attributes and data can be dynamically turned on/off or selected in our new Aux Inspector Dialog by clients such as webVis.

The new improved version 1.0 of MOPS features additional methods for segmentation, atlas packing, precomputed ambient occlusion, as well as advanced configuration possibilities.

You can see additional details in the Changelog.

Instant Reality 2.5.0 released

April 3rd, 2015

We’ve got a new incremental release out today: Instant Reality 2.5.0.

This release features a major overhaul of things that are mainly under the hood on both Windows and Mac OS X. We have also added two new platforms which we support directly: RedHat 6.5 and Suse Linux Enterprise 11.3. If you’re a Mac user, you will notice that the new version is a lot slimmer than it used to be, because we have dropped support for PowerPC. This means greater compatibility for new hardware and libraries in the release and for future additions. On Windows, developers who are adding InstantIO nodes can now switch to more modern development tools. Please see the Changelog for additional details.
