|OpenSceneGraph Reference Manual v2.2 Book Now Available
Ann Arbor, Michigan, and Louisville, Colorado, December 13, 2007--Blue Newt Software and Skew Matrix Software are pleased to announce the publication and immediate availability of OpenSceneGraph Reference Manual v2.2, documenting the current release of the cross-platform OpenGL-based scene graph API. The 640-page book is available both as a PDF file and softbound. Bob Kuehne (Blue Newt Software) and Paul Martz (Skew Matrix Software) co-edited the book.
OpenSceneGraph Reference Manual v2.2 is the fourth book in the OpenSceneGraph Programming Series. OpenSceneGraph Quick Start Guide, OpenSceneGraph Reference Manual v2.0, and OpenSceneGraph Reference Manual v1.2 are also available.
The new book includes an overview of OpenSceneGraph (OSG), changes in the new v2.2 release, and a complete reference for all environment variables that OSG uses. It fully documents all public methods and function parameters in the three core OSG libraries, osg, osgDB, and osgUtil. The reference chapters are generated directly from the OSG source code using Doxygen. The Doxygen configuration files were heavily enhanced to produce a high-quality, readable reference and eliminate clutter.
You can order both electronic and softbound editions now at http://www.osgbooks.com.
