Release of Cheetah3D 3.5

26. Oct. 2006


Cheetah3D 3.5 has been released today. Version 3.5 is mainly a bug fix release since all the big changes were done under the hood. For example the parameter system of Cheetah3D has been completely rewritten.
Cheetah3D 3.5 now also handles expression tags (Target, Spline Tracking) more intelligent. You can now define a priority in these tags which tells Cheetah3D in which order these tags have to be executed.
The Cheetah3D native .jas file format has been improved and extended too. .jas files with animation data have smaller size now and support the new parameter system. But please consider that v3.4 can't load animation data saved with v3.5.
