Just plugged on the test bench...

Ninja is a small build system closest in spirit to Make. Ninja is developed by Evan Martin, one of the Google Chrome developers.

Ninja is yet another build system. It takes as input the interdependencies of files (typically source code and output executables) and orchestrates building them, quickly.

Ninja joins a sea of other build systems. Its distinguishing goal is to be fast. It is born from my work on the Chromium browser project, which has over 30,000 source files and whose other build systems (including one built from custom non-recursive Makefiles) can take ten seconds to start building after changing one file. Ninja is under a second.

3D-Tech News Around The Web / Forbes: John Carmack On Rage And Age
« on: February 01, 2011, 10:51:17 AM »
Carmack points out that at age 40, he’s not the gamer he used to be. “I try not to guide our content decisions very much now,” he says. “I take care of the technical side of things… I’m not our market.”

“The only time I have to play games, I play Wii games with my six-year-old son,” he says. “I’m into all the different Mario games… I’m not all that into the latest Killzone or other [first-person shooters] out there.”

Carmack’s been working hard to complete his new game, the post-apocalyptic shooter Rage. It’s due to hit stores on September 13th, for Microsoft Windows, Apple’s Mac OS X, Sony’s PlayStation 3, and Microsoft’s Xbox 360.

3D-Tech News Around The Web / Frei-Chen edge detector (GLSL)
« on: January 31, 2011, 12:49:08 PM »
In this article, I would like to present you an edge detection algorithm that shares similar performance characteristics like the well-known Sobel operator but provides slightly better edge detection and can be seamlessly extended with little to no performance overhead to also detect corners alongside with edges. The algorithm works on a 3×3 texel footprint similarly like the Sobel filter but applies a total of nine convolution masks over the image that can be used for either edge or corner detection. The article presents the mathematical background that is needed to implement the edge detector and provides a reference implementation written in C/C++ using OpenGL that showcases both the Frei-Chen and the Sobel edge detection filter applied to the same image.

Rightware introduces Basemark(tm) GUI to enable creation of faster user interface systems

ESPOO, Finland -- December 28, 2010 – Rightware, the leader in 3D user interface technology, today announced a new product – Basemark™ GUI – to enable objective benchmarking of user interface performance of smartphones, pads, and other embedded devices. Basemark GUI enables operators, device manufacturers and semiconductor companies to measure a holistic system performance of user interfaces in all stages of the product development.

Basemark GUI provides scientifically studied, reliable test cases to give its users a confidence in their hardware performance analysis. In order to ensure that the product also meets the stringent requirements of the industry, Rightware have developed the product in close cooperation with world’s leading mobile phone and semiconductor companies.

The benchmark tests enabled by Basemark GUI generate OpenGL ES 1.1 and 2.0 workloads that tax the graphics system in a realistic and visually stunning way. The Basemark GUI product lends itself to hardware manufacturers as an essential tool to analyze platform capability of the user interface applications that use visually compelling 3D graphics.

“The graphics performance of a smartphone, pad, or other embedded system has probably never mattered as much as it does today. The user interface has become the focal point of differentiation as consumers tend to judge the goodness of a product based on how the user interface works in these devices,” said Tero Sarkkinen, CEO of Rightware. “Basemark GUI is the tool for device manufacturers who want to ensure that they choose the right chips and build their device only with the top-notch user interface software. We’re proud to bring Basemark GUI in to the front row of embedded industry to help tackling these challenges and enable the device manufacturers to introduce even better performing 3D user interfaces in their devices,” continued Mr. Sarkkinen.

Basemark GUI is available for licensing as source code and binary version.
