OpenSim HyperGrid : Bullet Physics is Alive and Well

By Avatar JayR Cela

    The Big debate(s) right now in OpenSim are Permissions suddenly changing from Full Permissions to No Permissions, and the ubODE physics engine. We should all start to breathe easy soon as the OpenSim 0.9.0 code is very close to being released in a Stable state, and it will contain both Bullet Physics as the default, with ubODE as an option.

    I will say this much as far as Physics engines go, Bullet at least has a dedicated Web Site, ubODE does not.

    It is worth taking a look at.

0.9.0 was very close to a stable release back in January when RC2 was released however since then new conditions were thrown up that were deemed to be required fixes before that was done. Those fixes were ultimately finished and now we in effect are in limbo since late May when the last one was resolved.

ubODE is based off of ODE whose website is here: www.ode.org.

Ahh Haa / A response from a Core Dev.

That's all I was trying for, someone to speak. Thank you for the ode.org web site link
