VR Juggler 1.0.5 released

The VR Juggler team would like to announce the release of VR Juggler 1.0.5. This version contains a fix for a few things that weren't quite right in the 1.0.4 release. Most notably OpenSceneGraph support. It seems that some of the code that worked fine in the 1.1 tree did not convert over the 1.0 tree very well.

Anyway, on the with good news.

VR Juggler now has full support for OpenSceneGraph in simulator and multi-pipe setups (requires OSG v0.8.44 or later)

Users of any prevous release are strongly encouraged to upgrade as this is the most stable version of VR Juggler.

The full source code and pre-compiled binaries for IRIX 6.5, RedHat Linux 7.2, and Win32 are available from the VR Juggler website ( Please review the RELEASE_NOTES for instructions on upgrading from previous versions of VR Juggler. The KNOWN_BUGS file contains a list of all bugs known at the time of release. For the most up-to-date list of bugs, please visit the VR Juggler bug tracker at

Note for RedHat Linux users:
Due to problems with OpenGL Performer 2.4 and 2.5 on RedHat Linux, we are not building Linux versions of VR Juggler with Performer support. The OpenGL-only version built for RedHat 7.2 was compiled using GCC version 2.96 20000731 (Red Hat Linux 7.2 2.96-98). Use of the older compilers is the only way to use Performer on newer releases of RedHat. Please refer to for more detailed information.

VR Juggler is developed by students and faculty at the Virtual Reality Applications Center at Iowa State University. It is freely available to all interested parties under the GNU Lesser General Public License (LGPL). For more information, please read the COPYING file or visit
