Hi :)

I'm happy to announce that Pixcon/Anitroll/Gamegine release 1.08 is available
to the public.

What is Pixcon you may ask?  Pixcon is a set rendering and animation tools
that include:

        - a render that creates high quality images by using a combination
          of 11 rendering primitives.

        - a dynamic/kinematic hiearchical based animation system w/ support
          for "flock of birds", autonomous cameras, and flight models.

        - a real time system designed for game development.

        - libraries and source code for customizing and developing 2D/3D tools.

If you aren't convinced yet, I invite you to look at the Pixcon Home page at:

    http://www.radix.net/~dunbar/index.html

  * Available for Pentium-Linux, DOS/Win95, and SGI-IRIX 6.5

BTW, If you have any comments email me at dunbar@saltmine.radix.net

Have fun :)
