“As part of a multi-faceted program, 3Dfx launched several new
sections of its Web site today to serve as a resource for
developers using Linux and other operating systems based on
UNIX®. The company also announced that it is releasing 2D
specifications for Voodoo Banshee(TM), its award-winning graphics
accelerator, to the Open Source(TM) community.”

“On the 3Dfx Web site, developers will find Voodoo Banshee 2D
specifications, 3Dfx Glide® libraries for Linux (developed for
3Dfx and Linux users by independent software developer Daryll
Strauss), and links to Mesa, an OpenGL® compatible library for
Open Source platforms.”
