Open CASCADE Technology 6.6.0 is available for download!
April 22, 2013
OPEN CASCADE SAS is pleased to announce a new public maintenance release of Open CASCADE Technology (version 6.6.0).
This is a minor release, which includes over 250 new features, improvements and bug fixes over maintenance release 6.5.5.
Version 6.6.0 is binary incompatible with the previous versions of Open CASCADE Technology and Products, so applications linked against a previous version must be recompiled to run with this Version 6.6.0.
New in this version:
Official support of Mac OS X, Windows 8 and Visual Studio 2012
On Mac OS X, visualization with native Cocoa API and XCode 4 project files
Refactored Boolean operations algorithm. Possibility to enable automatic check of input parameters and results and generation of data for bug report
Redesign of texture management
Accelerated text visualization; use of FTGL library is dropped
Removal of obsolete 2D viewer and plotter support libraries; 3D viewer libraries become the unified way to render both 2D and 3D graphics
TKOpenGl is now linked at build time, not at run time
Import / export made independent of the current global locale
Universal CMake build scripts
New automated testing system
Detailed information about this release is available in Release Notes (PDF).
