Stable Release : NONE

Please note that the unstable/developmental release is stable enough for practical purposes, but is named so because the API is not stabilized.

Unstable/developmental Release : 0.3.0

Source and binary packages can be downloaded from:

IMPORTANT UPDATE: The gcc 3.2 RPMs have been updated (-2sar) which are now compiled on Mandrake 9.0. The earlier RPMs were compiled on Mandrake 9.1 and did not install on Mandrake 9.0. These new RPMs are tested on both Mandrake 9.0 and Mandrake 9.1. These will probably work on all gcc 3.2 based distributions. Please email your experiences.

There are two sets of RPMs available. One is compiled with gcc 2.96 (gcc296 in the name) and the other is compiled with gcc 3.2 (gcc32x is in the name). Use the appropriate RPMs depending on the gcc version your distribution is compiled with. The gcc 2.96 RPMs are compiled on RedHat 7.3 but should work on all gcc 2.96 based distros like Mandrake 8.x etc. The gcc 3.2 RPMs are compiled on Mandrake 9.1 but should also work on other gcc 3.2 based distros like Mandrake 9.0, RedHat 9.0, etc. If you experience any problems, please send an email to the openvl-devel mailing list.

To install the RPMs, give the command "rpm -ivh" followed by the rpm files that you downloaded. You will need to install the libopenvl and the libopenvl-plugins RPM files to use OpenVL. You will also need the -devel packages if you plan to develop software using OpenVL.

For OpenVL 0.1.x releases: The binary RPM packages are compiled on Linux Mandrake 9.0 which comes with gcc 3.2. If you use a Linux distribution with gcc 3.2, then you should be able to simply use the RPM packages. Please let us know if there is problem installing the packages. You will also need the -devel packages if you plan to write software using OpenVL.

From CVS:
