The GNU 3DKit is officially part of the GNU project! It is an extension to GNUstep, which provides an object oriented application development framework and tool set for use on a wide variety of computer platforms. GNUstep is based on the original OpenStep specification provided by NeXT, Inc. (now Apple). Additionally the GNU 3DKit may also be used on Mac OS X using the Cocoa API.
Instead of developing yet another OpenGL based scene graph API the new GNU 3DKit will become an object oriented graphics framework based on global illumination concepts which will use OpenGL only for preview capabilities. More information will be reveiled as soon as the time is ready for it.
