Sorry for the "quick update", but during testing of the release earlier this
week, we discovered an incompatability with the Java3D version 1.3.2. This
this version of Java3D fixes some very critical problems with ATI graphics
cards, we thought it was important to correct this and re-release.
Also, please note in the comments for visad.java3d.VisADCanvasJ3D that the
source code now is consistent with the .class file in that off-screen
renderening is always enabled (now using single buffering). In previous
releases, the source code showed it disabled, but the .class file was compiled
with it enabled, apparently so that it could be easily re-compiled for people
using Java3D versions prior to 1.2.1.
Anyways, here is a summary of the changes:

* java3d/: DisplayRendererJ3D.java, VisADCanvasJ3D.java: Java3D
team recommends turning off double-buffering for offscreen
rendering/capture; this problem occurs only in 1.3.2 and on
Windows/ATI systems, other platforms shouldn't be affected by
2005-06-15 15:07 rink
* java3d/GraphicsModeControlJ3D.java: fix-up antialias flag and
assoc. get method
The javadoc at: <http://www.ssec.wisc.edu/visad/docs/> has also been updated.
