The C source code for the SST graphical client was released today under the GPL. The client provides a heads-up display with both mouse controls and keyboard controls for playing the free online multiplayer strategy game, Starship Traders. The background of the heads-up display is a view of space from inside your space ship, including any planets, starbases, fighters, and other ships that are in that same sector of space.

The program uses only the Mesa3D OpenGL-like library and the GLUT, GLU, and X libraries and should therefore be pretty portable. As of today, however, it has only been compiled and distributed for Linux.
