- Reworked the Camera class[[BR]]
— Now fully quaternion based [[BR]]
— Basic camera types added but not used yet (third person, first person, orbit) [[BR]]
- Cleaned up Material and Texture handling [[BR]]
- Added clipping plane support [[BR]]
— Similar to OpenGL fixed-function clip planes but fully shader driven [[BR]]
— Added a new class, “Plane”, that helps define clip planes [[BR]]
- Optimized the Singleton class to allow faster “getInstance” calls without performance penalties [[BR]]
-- “createInstance” must be called for each singleton class before usage. Or “gerOrCreateInstance” can be used, which is basically the former “getInstance” implementation [[BR]]
- Improved console logging by changing some heap allocations to stack and removing dependencies on the std::string class [[BR]]
- Added a lot of performance optimizations related to coding standards and redundant calculations [[BR]]
— e.g. Frustum AABB check didn’t need to recompute the AABB points as they were calculated already [[BR]]
— e.g. A vector did not need to be set to 0 on initialization as that is already it’s default state on creation [[BR]]
— e.g. Faster Framerate and Timing calculations by using less member variables that are not needed outsied of calling functions [[BR]]
- The SceneState now contains the SceneRenderState and is passed on to the SceneGraph’s update calls [[BR]]
- Better material export/import to/from XML format [[BR]]
- More bug fixes and cleanups [[BR]]

[Ionut] [[BR]]
- Fixed a rendering bug with the previous terrain rendering system (number of strips was not calculated correctly. had to add the primitive restart indices to the list as well) [[BR]]
- Fixed a rendering bug with the previous double sided Quad3D patch (water planes should not be double sided. The first parameter of the bool mask of the resource descriptor for water planes now controls whether the Quad will be single or double sided) [[BR]]
- NavMesh debug draw now uses a caching system for rendering instead of re-submitting the same geometry every frame [[BR]]
— Fixed a bug that prevented GLIM primitives to be cached if they had “canZombify” set to false [[BR]]
- Navigation meshes are now saved and loaded from file on creation. Delete the “nm” file from the navMeshes subfolder to recreate a navigation mesh for a scene. [[BR]]
- LightManager is now a FrameListener. ShadowMap generation is called with the “FramePreRenderEnd” event [[BR]]
- Terrain NavMesh uses the lowest LoD possible for now to improve creation times until all bugs are resolved [[BR]]
- Geometry importer now uses the “replace” operation for the base texture of objects [[BR]]
- glUniformBufferObjects are now a little less dependent on the GLM library [[BR]]
- Primitive restart is now toggled on or off at each VAO draw call [[BR]]
- Some GFXDevice inlining [[BR]]

[Ionut] [[BR]]
- New rendering pipeline (experimental and unstable): [[BR]]
— OpenGL 3.x clean context (glLight commands are still used for now, but UBO support is there, but not used yet) [[BR]]
— Custom matrix stacks and UBO based shader data (UBOs cause some link errors on some nVidia cards)[[BR]]
— Multi-threaded texture loading and shader compilation (mt shader compilation disabled for now. needs more tests) [[BR]]
— VAO rendering is self contained (no more enable/disable calls before a draw request) [[BR]]
— Render instance class used for rendering information [[BR]]
[[BR]]
- New unique ID generation base class: GUIDWrapper. Each class that derives from this, gets an application wide unique id on construction [[BR]]
- Added base code for an in-game editor using CEGUI [[BR]]
- Replaced some mutex locks with lockless data structures or atomic data [[BR]]
- CEGUI 0.8.2, FTGL-GL3 and GLIM 0.4 modified to support GLEW_MX if defined [[BR]]
- Dropped VS2008 support [[BR]]
- Networking library, server framework and ReCast files are now projects inside the Divide Framework solution [[BR]]
- New console command “setFov” that modifies the horizontal FoV value in realtime [[BR]]
- New console command “recompileShader” that reparses shader files, recompiles shaders and relinks shader programs who’s names match or contain the argument string [[BR]]
- New debug utility: axis angle drawn in corner of the screen if needed [[BR]]
- More ‘const’-s pasted around the code, more loop performance tweaks (allocations before a loop, tighter loops, etc), more utility member functions added to various classes [[BR]]

[Ionut] [[BR]]
- Better ReCast integration [[BR]]
— Any entity can be used as an obstacle in the NavMesh if that’s specified in each scene’s assets.xml file for said entity [[BR]]
— New console command, “createNavMesh”, that passes geometry data to ReCast [[BR]]
-— NavMesh generation is not yet complete [[BR]]
- Better PhysX integration [[BR]]
— Each scene passes data to and gets data from the Physics API better and safer[[BR]]
- Multi-threaded support extended: [[BR]]
— Event class replaced with Task [[BR]]
— Kernel uses a threadpool for scene tasks [[BR]]
— Each task can be added to a different threadpool if needed [[BR]]
— Most critical sections use the new boost::atomic wrapper for thread safety [[BR]]
- Rendering system updated [[BR]]
— VBO’s keep track of the geometry type internally [[BR]]
— Rendering by specific element list is internal to the VBO [[BR]]
— VBO’s can draw a “lite” version that doesn’t send Tangent, BiTangent and TexCoord data for depth rendering (disabled) [[BR]]
- Reflectors now offer a preview of the generated reflective texture if needed [[BR]]
- Buttons are now added and rendered by CEGUI [[BR]]
[[BR]]

[Ionut] [[BR]]
-Decoupled “Scene” and “SceneManager” from “InputManager” [[BR]]
--All input events are routed through the “Kernel” now [[BR]]
--Renamed “InputManager” to “InputInterface” [[BR]]
-Decoupled “Application” class from the rest of the engine except for the “Kernel” and “GUI” (for resize callbacks) [[BR]]
-Added cached resolution values to classes so no queries to “Application” are needed anymore [[BR]]
-Added a missing option from “config.xml” to enable or disable animations [[BR]]
Forgot to commit changed scene xml’s after the romanian>english translation [[BR]]
-All window dimension references are renamed to resolution and all variables related to it are now U16’s as floats are irrelevant (what’s a half pixel? for examle) [[BR]]
-GUI resize callback is now called from “GFXDevice” instead of “GLWrapper” (will be moved to “Kernel” soon together with the “PostFX” resize callback) [[BR]]

[Ionut] [[BR]]
Features: [[BR]]
-Added a proper RenderState Management system similar to the D3D default one[[BR]]
--All possible states are managed: cull, blend, alpha-blend, color mask, lighting, stencil mask, fill mode etc [[BR]]
--Every material has different states for normal rendering, shadow rendering and reflection rendering [[BR]]
--Nodes are sorted by shader first then by state hash depending on current render stage [[BR]]
--Redundant states are not changed [[BR]]
--Every entity submits it’s desired state before render [[BR]]
--Every state is checked before rendering a VBO or other primitive type[[BR]]
[[BR]]
-Added a Reflector base class used for reflection calculations and updates (useful for water, mirrors, portals etc)[[BR]]
--Reflections are triggered between pre-render and render calls [[BR]]
--Water now derives from Reflector class as well [[BR]]
[[BR]]
-Material now properly calculates if it has transparency or is double sided, setting desired states to handle this feature (cull, blend) [[BR]]
-Added some basic defines or inline template functions to facilitate access to useful classes and methods (hardware devices, resource management, console printing, etc) [[BR]]
-Lights are updated after every camera update[[BR]]
-Added a new FrameListener event triggered after pre-render call is finished (used by reflectors) [[BR]]
