Louisville, Colorado, and Ann Arbor, Michigan, August 14, 2007
As was announced at the SIGGRAPH ’07 OSG BOF, Blue Newt Software and Skew Matrix Software have partnered to provide OpenSceneGraph (OSG) support services, which includes support on a new branch of OSG v1.2 as well as the current OSG development head. The v1.2 branch will be licensed under the OSGPL and available for free download.
“Many clients have applications that use OSG v1.2. They can’t port to OSG v2.x at this time, so they still need bug fixes and minor feature additions on v1.2,” said Paul Martz, Skew Matrix Software president. “Bob Kuehne and I will support these customers on v1.2, and help them move to v2.x as their schedule allows.”
Changes to the v1.2 branch will be funded primarily through support contract sales, and driven by the needs of clients with active support contracts. The branch will remain active as long as clients continue to purchase support.
