A new version of New World Studio is comming not only for Windows but also for Mac and Linux:
“New World Studio is open source software, based on the OpenSimulator platform, making possible to set up a virtual world environment in minutes.
Wether you are an educational or 3D design professional, or simply for fun, New World Studio is made for you. It is currently set as a standalone OpenSim install, but will be able to connect to OpenSim grids in the future.
New World Studio is still under development but a public release will be made available soon.”
At this moment they are working hard to bring this new version as soon as possible. I have tried before and it is very easy to install and use. I am sure this new version will be very good too. Here is another information from their blog:
“First of all, I would like to thank everyone who helped test the very first uncomplete draft of New World Studio. It is reported as basically running correctly on Windows, Mac and Linux. Some bugs have been resolved and missing feature added.
At the time I’m writing these lines, there are only 2 major features left to achieve : automatic updates (in progress), and email management (to be done).
So the beta release will likely be available next week ! Probably around tuesday 15th. Everyone will be able to download it from the downloads page : http://www.newworldstudio.org/site/en/downloads
You will just need to register on this website in order to download, this will greatly help evaluate interrest and publish anonymous download statistics such as the number of unique users having downloaded, which you may be interrested in.
Thanks to all for your support and interrest.!”
I hope they will finish this new version in the next weeks, I really want to try this new version and to see if it really good as their last one.
