Highlights of this Release

For Titania SpotLight nodes, DirectionalLight nodes, and PointLight nodes, there is a shadow subsection in the light’s Attribute Editor. You can adjust the shadow color, the shadow intensity, the shadow diffusion, and the shadow map size. Titania then automatically creates shadow maps to render the desired shadow.
The Transform Tool has become overhauled and is now even more flexible than it ever was before.
The new Background Editor lets you adjust backgrounds in a very comfortable way now.
The brand new Geometry Editor is ready for release and provides you with basic geometry editing operations.
Titania is a is a fast, powerful and highly interactive full standard X3D/VRML editor that also works as standalone browser for all flavours of Ubuntu. Titania competely supports the Moving Worlds specification for VRML 2.0 and most parts of the X3D 3.3 specification. Titania is freely downloadable for any usage and licensed under the GPL3. See the documentation to learn how Titania works.

A new examples library is now available at GitHub. Most of them are found on the Internet and are provided »as is«. They run fine with the latest version of Titania and Cobweb. We collected a lot of examples from simple to advanced worlds. If you want to download a single sub-directory you can use GitHub's svn support:
svn export https://github.com/create3000/Library/trunk/Examples/Astronomy
Copy and paste the line above into a terminal and replace the sub-directory with the directory of your choice. But now, have fun with watching and listening!
