Are You Guys Still Alive?!
Yes, yes, of course we are! We've all just been very busy lately and haven't had a chance to make much happen. However, James Walker has made a few changes in the subversion trunk (which will appear in Cal3D 0.12) that should improve the fluidity of animations, and Palle Raabjerg, Jeremy Moles, and Jean-Baptiste Lamy have rewritten the Blender exporter--though much works still remains. Perhaps 2007 will be a better year for releases, improvements, and fixes all around! Also, don't forget to join us in #cal3d on Freenode!

What is Cal3D?
Cal3D is a skeletal based 3D character animation library written in C++ in a platform-/graphic API-independent way. Originally designed to be used in a 3D client for Worldforge, it evolved into a stand-alone product which can be used in many different kinds of projects. It supports combining animations and actions through a "mixer" interface, and work is currently underway to integrate morph targets (interpolating between one mesh and another, using the same vertex sequence) easily into the system.

Subversion
You can stay up-to-date with Cal3D's latest code using Subversion! Please keep in mind that while every attempt is made to not commit changes that wholly break the Cal3D library, we are a multi-developer project and accidents do happen. Let us know if we've missed anything using IRC or our mailing lists. We can usually fix any small bugs right away.
