Ft. Lauderdale, Florida - January 21, 1999:
Metro Link proudly announces the early access release of Metro Extreme 3D for graphics cards using a single 3DLabs GLINT 500MX chip on a Linux/x86 operating system (glibc or libc5). Metro Extreme 3D is an SGI-compliant port of OpenGL which provides 3D hardware acceleration on specific cards.

This early access release, as well as the upcoming official release of Metro Extreme 3D, will be a free upgrade for all existing customers with a valid Metro OpenGL license. In addition, anyone who purchases Metro OpenGL will automatically get the official version of Metro Extreme 3D when it is released. Contact to get your free upgrade or to purchase a new license.

Metro Link has created two newsgroups for discussion of this product and its subsequent releases. The public newsgroup is for customers and potential customers who want to stay informed of product development. The other newsgroup is private, for interaction with customers actually using the early access release of Metro Extreme 3D.

To join the public newsgroup, point your news reader to and look for metrolink.me3d.

To join the private newsgroup, contact to verify your original purchase of Metro OpenGL and to receive a login and password required for participation in this group.
