XSeen V0.6 Release
XSeen V0.6.19 has just been released. This version has new major functionality plus bug fixes for all previous versions. The major functionality includes
- HTML Event handling

One of the major rendering improvements with this versions is the addition of physically-based rendering (PBR). This is the current state-of-the-art means for realtime rendering of models. XSeen provides support for the metallic-roughness rendering model with all of the standard modifications (surface normals, ambient occulusion, etc.). See this paper for a reivew of the Khronos model for glTF.
