    Hey,

    the build of the 3.0 release is actually already available for a while now so I thought its time for an “internal” release. We’ll start the full-on media attack a bit later but the 3.0 final version is now linked in the downloads.

    List of main fixes and new features since 3.0RC2:

    Engine
    – LWJGL base now works on MacOSX 10.7+ incl. Applets
    – Hardware Skinning
    – Shader Nodes
    Better Character (beta)
    – New LOD Generator!
    – TangentBinormalGenerator was refactored
    Better physics debug view

    SDK
    Now bundles a compatible version of the JDK
    Now bundles a version of Blender for conversion and more
    Shader Node Editor (!)
    Code completion for assets
    Texture Atlas creation and packed texture handling
    External editor mesh updates for j3o files
    Seamless 3DS and Collada import through blender
    Improvements to model import tool, allows to locate and import textures
    Attach custom AppStates to the SDK editor scene
    – New help and error log system, look for the monkey in the bottom right!
    – Improved Font Importer
    – Improved support for using other IDEs for code
    – Improved obfuscation support for protecting your applications code

    You can download the 3.0 final SDK now at http://hub.jmonkeyengine.org/downloads/

    Cheers,
    Normen

    P.S. A 3.0.1 update is already available in the update center, fixing a problem with the ogre importer and animations.

    This might be a dumb question.

    But where exactly is the update center!

    Hi.

    I haven’t been here for ages; decided to have a go at the JME3 book, gathering dust on my table, and checked for an update. I have two questions:

    1) I think there was talk of making JME3 “Maven compatible”; was that achieved?

    2) I think there was also talk of making JME3 “OSGi compatible”; was that achieved?

    Apart from that, congratulation!

    Regards,
    Monster

    Yeah it is compatible but theres no maven or osgi artifacts yet ^^ You can however as always use jME in the IDE of your choice anyway.

    Hmm, I wasn’t very clear, and so I’m not sure what to make of your answer. Waiting for the file to download atm (my old installation was lost with a HDD crash…)

    I didn’t want to know if the jar was available on Maven Central, or some OGSi repo; I just wanted to know if the JME3 source now comes with a Maven POM, which can produces one (or more) OSGi “bundles”, so I can build it myself into a bundle(s). That is all I hoped for; a “maintained” Maven POM file within the JME3 source, with configured OSGi bundle metadata generation.

    Well that would imply that we’d also build artifacts from that so the answer is still no I’m afraid.

    Shoop da whoop. And I thought it would never happen. :D

    Congratulations jME Team + community!

    Will there be a official download on hub/downloads that only contains the engine jars without the SDK? So far i only got my jar needs fulfilled from the (rather obscure) nightly page, with the last build being from may.

    Anyways, YAY!

    If we get to 3.2 can we call it “Electric Boogaloo”?
