3D-Tech News Around The Web / Matali Physics 1.4.2 released
« on: April 17, 2011, 07:03:32 AM »
Matali Physics 1.4.2 and Matali Physics Pro 1.4.2 are now available. New edition of Matali Physics Pro engine offers an out-of-the-box support for Android OS through the Mono for Android 1.0 and support for the final version of MonoTouch 4.0. Both editions introduce support for non-static plain shape.

3D-Tech News Around The Web / AntTweakBar 1.14 released
« on: April 17, 2011, 06:51:22 AM »
AntTweakBar is a small and easy-to-use C/C++ library that allows programmers to quickly add a light and intuitive graphical user interface into graphic applications based on OpenGL, DirectX 9, DirectX 10 or DirectX 11 to interactively tweak parameters on-screen.

2011/03/26 - Version 1.14 released - Changes:
- Added 64 bit version of the library.
- Added multiple windows support (Inspired by comments and code from Evan F. and Ivo H.). See new function TwSetCurrentWindow.
- Better MacOSX support (Thanks to Alexis DH., Fabrice N., Diederick H., Alec J.).
- Improved readability of overlapped transparent bars. Content of overlapped regions is clipped and not drawn. This behavior can be disabled using the bar parameter overlap.
- Added support for Direct3D11 + example.
- Added support for SDL 1.3 integration in addition to SDL 1.2. ABI modification: TwEventSDL takes SDL version as an additional parameter.
- Added support for SFML 1.6 integration.
- Added support for GLFW 2.7 integration in addition to GLFW 2.6. This may imply changing the calling convention of event callbacks. Can be done by defining GLFW_CDECL before including AntTweakBar.h if needed.
- Added function TwKeyTest that checks if a key event would be processed by AntTweakBar but without processing it. Needed to fix bad handling report of WM_KEYUP and WM_KEYDOWN in TwEventWin (Thanks to Ryan DB. for reporting it).
- Added check sign for vars of type boolean.
- Added new bar parameter buttonalign to center or left-align buttons (Suggested by Michael R.).
- Allowed values column width to be adjusted to fit its content. This is done by setting the bar parameter valueswidth=fit (Requested by Koshmaar and Michael R.). The user can also click in the left or right area near the value width slider to fit column content.
- Added new helper function TwDefineEnumFromString to ease the defining of an enum through a string of comma-separated enum values (Thanks to Bruno L. for the suggestion and code).

3D-Tech News Around The Web / Microsoft Silverlight 5 beta
« on: April 14, 2011, 04:44:26 PM »
New Features Announced for Silverlight 5
Improved media support and rich UI capabilities:

Hardware Decode and presentation of H.264 improve performance for lower-power devices to render high-definition video using GPU support.
Graphics improvements:

    Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) accelerated 3-D application programming interface (API) provides rich graphics on the Web for building advanced data visualizations and rich user experience (UI).
    Immediate mode graphics API allows direct rendering to the GPU.
    Hardware acceleration is enabled in windowless mode with Internet Explorer 9.

AMD CodeAnalyst Performance Analyzer for Windows Version 3.2 has a revamped profile session settings, allowing the capture of CPU and memory utilization for a timeline display.

The new overview display should make an easier starting point for analyzing profile data, with short summaries and clickable links to the detailed data.

OpenCl performance information is now available for profiles performed from modules using the AMD Accelerated Parallel Processing (APP) SDK with OpenCL™ Support. The timeline shows the API calls, kernel events, and data transfer events next to CPU utilization, memory utilization, and GPU utilization. There are also tabulated views of aggregated OpenCL API information, for quick navigation to the API calls of interest.

Version 3.2 also includes bug fixes.

3D-Tech News Around The Web / HDMI Audio on NVIDIA GPUs version 1.4
« on: April 13, 2011, 04:06:07 PM »
This document attempts to describe everything you need to know about configuring audio-over-HDMI on recent NVIDIA GPUs and chipsets. A fair level of detail is provided, in an attempt to fully explain everything, rather than hiding useful details.

For brevity, the phrase GPU below includes both GPUs on standalone graphics cards, and GPUs integrated within chipsets. The phrase GPU specifically covers only NVIDIA GPUs, and never includes GPUs from other manufacturers. In some cases, chipsets and GPUs may be explicitly discussed separately due to differing feature sets.

For brevity, this document discusses HDMI audio. However, everything herein applies equally to Display Port, and in many cases also DVI ports when connected to an HDMI port on the display device.

The references to a "monitor" within this document apply equally to any device capable of receiving an HDMI signal containing an audio signal. In particular, an A/V receiver with an HDMI input may be used to receive the HDMI signal, process just the audio portion of the signal, and either ignore the video portion completely, or pass that video on to a display device.

Revision History
Added item to Issues In Alsa describing a problem on some chipsets which causes blank video unless audio is playing.

Today Microsoft previewed the next version of Internet Explorer 10 at MIX11 in Las Vegas.  Dean Hachamovitch, Corporate Vice President, Internet Explorer was joined on stage by Steven Sinofsky, President, Windows and Windows Live Division.  They showed a variety of new IE10 and HTML5 demos.  Most notable was IE10 running on the next version of Windows which supports the ARM architecture (as announced by Microsoft during CES this year).  This demo was powered by the NVIDIA Tegra superchip. You can take a look at the demo here (you’ll want to start at about 2:03:00 in):

The first Platform Preview of IE10 is available for download immediately (and features great new GPU accelerated HTML5 previews at

The next-generation of Microsoft Windows and IE10 running on Tegra offers a compelling glimpse of things to come.  Stay tuned for future announcements.
