FW: The new Web3D Consortium web site is now live
Pardon me for cross posting, folks. This is a one time incursion for those on this list that have interest in real time 3D in XML. The GSG folks worked hard to get this site up. It comes at a time when the W3DC is reorganizing to focus on vertical applications of X3D and X3D-related technologies. This new page is a tremendous improvement and the new focus of the consortium, in my opinion, will be a push forward for 3D on the web. And in XML. Whoda believed that six years ago.... len ***************************************************************** From: Elizabeth Riegel [mailto:elizabeth@g...] Sent: Thursday, March 18, 2004 4:37 PM Subject: [bod] The new Web3D Consortium web site is now live Hello: I'm happy to say that the new Web3D Consortium web site is now live at www.web3d.org A big thanks to the Consortium Members and the web3d.org community volunteers who contributed and helped us to deliver a site that is dynamic and usable for developers and members... and also attractive and interesting as a vehicle for outbound marketing. We will gradually bring on-line additional content and services for our users, and in particular, new services for our members. Any new site has bugs. We have had several volunteers test it for browser compatibility and navigability. Their feedback was good, and hopefully we have removed most of the glitches. Here is how we could best use your feedback: (feedback to webmaster@w...) 1) Test the site on different modern web browsers and OS combinations - If you discover a display problem, please let us know. - Be sure to include the browser version and OS platform you are using. - Describe the problem you find, and if you can, take a screen grab that illustrates the problem and send it along. - We will try to adjust things to accommodate the dominant browsers. - Known bugs: the now discontinued IE 5 on the Mac, and Opera 6 2) Examine the way the existing site is organized - We have tried to make as much of the content as readily visible as possible. But undoubtedly there will be things that you need that we have overlooked. - Are there things missing that stop your development work dead in its tracks? Tell us and we will try to add this content in quickly. (Things like historical VRML documents or old press releases have lower priority). - The entire site structure is different, so if you come across a website that links to a particular page on web3d.org, please email that website so they can update their web page and then email us, so we can follow up. 3) Tell us what is missing & tell us what you think - Are there you any additional features or content that you would like to see added to the site? Please list in order of priority. - Please feel free to give us feedback on any of the work we've done here, we would greatly appreciate it. Things to note: - The VRML email list addresses many different things; from VRML to X3D to philosophy. To allow participants to better focus, we have added an X3D development list and an H-Anim development list. These lists are intended to stay focused strictly on these respective technologies, and as long as they stay on topic, they will remain public and un-moderated. - If you are doing X3D development work and you have done something you think is interesting or released a new version of an application, please submit it as a news story. - If you have an X3D application that is not listed in our applications database, please submit it. Please send feedback directly to webmaster@w....
