      Release Notes: This release, nearly a year in the making, represents a leap from a hobby project to a commercial-grade library. It is now available under either a commercial license or the GPL, depending upon your needs. The changes in this release's codebase are substantial, ranging from fundamental improvements to a whole new battery of helpful examples. Users should consider this a "must have" edition.

        Release Notes: This release makes a quantum leap in terms of the sophistication of the AnimationTask system. An event-based callback system has been added that allows code to be notified when tasks start and finish, and a "cycle length" concept has been implemented, allowing excessive CPU use to be curbed during animations.

          Release Notes: This release features a number of small improvements, including smoother animation and a better connector interface. The most significant change, however, is "under the hood" in the form of a complete conversion to the new language features of Java 5.0.

          •  08 Oct 2004 09:53

            Release Notes: This release focuses on improving the animation features of Vector Visuals. Thread management has been improved, and a new "TaskChain" class has been added that allows tasks to be executed in sequence rather than only in parallel.
