Re: (JDK 1.2 & Java3D on Linux and SGI)

Hi Randy,
 
I just read that Sun has joined Linux International, and there
was discussion by Sun about efforts to port Java3D to Linux
and Solaris x86.
 
No one will release any ports of Java 1.2 and Java3D until
Sun brings their reference implementation out of beta, but
SGI is known to be working on Java 1.2.  It would help for
people to let SGI know that they want Java3D on SGI.  It
will undoubtedly happen with or without SGI's effort, but
would be so much cleaner with their support.
 
Sun is planning to bring Java 1.2 and Java3D out of beta
sometime this fall.
 
Cheers,
Bill
