OpenVRML 0.16.1

OpenVRML 0.16.1 has been released. In this release the Mozilla plug-in backend has been reconstituted as openvrml-gtkplug, a reusable out-of-process GTK+ VRML browser component. XPCOM usage has been removed from the Mozilla plug-in, which should allow it to work in any browser that supports NPAPI and XEmbed plug-ins. Basic rendering of Text nodes now works on Windows. A number of problems with the build system were also addressed.

OpenVRML now asynchronously loads network resources and progressively renders PNG and JPEG images. Support for nonnative EXTERNPROTOs has been added, including asynchronous loading of EXTERNPROTO implementations. Also, OpenVRML can now construct scene graphs for Classic VRML-encoded X3D. The Mozilla plug-in now uses the Web browser for resource fetching, allowing the plug-in to take advantage of the browser's cache.
