"Over the past few months (aka year) the future of Java3D has been in question. Not too long ago Apple announced a port to OS X, but still no official update from Sun. A few weeks ago Sun announced that they were going to release the source code and begin collecting comments for version 1.4/2.0. And today they delivered, right before the JavaOne conference. The announcement can be found here (http://archives.java.sun.com/cgi-bin/wa?A2=ind0406&L=java3d-interest&F=&S=&P=24617) and the CVS here (https://java3d.dev.java.net/). The code includes the core scenegraph, the vector math library, and Sun's own add-on utility libraries.""
