Support for pbuffers on X11 has been added to Jogl. The HWShadowmapsSimple and ProceduralTexturePhysics demos now run on Linux with the appropriate hardware.
A fair amount of restructuring has been done in the Jogl internals as a side-effect of this change, though most of these changes are not visible at the end user level. The most apparent change is that there are fewer methods exposed in the public GLX interface and that the XVisualInfo class is no longer in the public API. For more details on the restructuring, see the CVS log for e.g. make/Makefile2. (Feel free to add yourself to the firstname.lastname@example.org
for automated updates when checkins occur.)
Prebuilt binaries for Linux, Mac OS X and Windows, as well as of the demos, have been posted to the file sharing section of the Jogl project. The Windows binaries include the highly experimental and highly undocumented Cg binding, which requires NVidia's Cg SDK to be installed. The demo binaries unfortunately don't include the Cg examples that are in the source tree but they should compile easily against the posted binaries.
We are working on being able to post jar files that can be referenced directly with Java Web Start to avoid needing to manually download and install future binaries.
Next week we'll try to address some of the bugs that have been posted as well as switch over to using Ant for the builds to solve some of the Win32 build problems that have been seen. If anyone has some time this weekend to bring the posted build.xml up to date with what's in the current Makefile2 I'd appreciate it. Please post or send email if you do this.
For those in the US, have a good Fourth of July weekend.
