white_dune is a graphical VRML97/X3DV editor, simple NURBS/Superformula 3D modeller, animation tool, and VRML97/X3DV commandline compiler in development. VRML97 (Virtual Reality Modeling Language) is the ISO standard for displaying 3D data over the Web via browser plugins ("HTML for realtime 3D"). X3DV is the direct successor of VRML97. VRML97 and X3DV have support for animation, real-time interaction, and multimedia (images, movies, and sounds). white_dune can read, create, and display VRML97/X3DV files and let the user change the scenegraph/fields. It also has support for stereoscopic view via "quadbuffer"-capable stereo visuals, and support for 3D input devices like a joystick, spaceball, or magnetic tracker.

Release Notes: This release adds exports to different file formats (e.g. HTML via X3DOM). Many bugs have been fixed. A CurveAnimation extension node has been added.
Release Notes: Adds better requirements for the RPM package on Fedora 19. Replaces a bad default gimp command line with pinta command line.
Release Notes: This release turns the heart into red.
Release Notes: Fixes scenegraph branch to PROTO.
Release Notes: This release fixes wrong ElevationGrid.colorPerVertex FALSE rendering and updates the list of special covise DEF-Names in DEF-Dialog. Unfortunately, it is not possible to implement the scripted node NurbsCurveAnimation as a VRML97/X3D PROTO, so "create curve animation" functionality has been moved from the now-deprecated NurbsCurveAnimation node to the new CurveAnimation node. This release adds a backward-compatibility compilation flag to convert the deprecated NurbsCurveAnimation node automatically to the new CurveAnimation node.
