Comment On This Article

NVIDIA has today unleashed Cg 1.5 Beta 1. The Cg Toolkit is a compiler for NVIDIA's Cg language. Cg also uses runtime libraries for use with both leading graphics APIs (DirectX & OpenGL), runtime libraries for CgFX, example applications, and extensive documentation. This language presently supports over 24 different OpenGL and DirectX profile targets, and is designed to allow the developer to write stunning interface effects into 3D applications. Several new features are added into this 1.5 Beta 1 over the previous 1.4 version. Linux and Windows install packages remain available. More information is available at NVIDIA's Cg developer site. Will this Cg 1.5 Beta 1 be complimented today by the release of the new Linux drivers? We do not know for certainty at this point but stay tuned.
