Metro Extreme 3D – Early Access Release for 3DLabs Glint Chip

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
[email protected] 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.
