Unity 1.6 - Website Interactivity

November 28, 2006 – Unity 1.6 has just been released as an update to the 3D web-and-standalone game development tool. With this release Unity brings increased power, better usability, and more integration possibilities to cross-platform web and standalone game development.

The Unity Web Player browser plugin can now fully interact with DHTML web pages that it's embedded in. Unity supports Internet Explorer, Safari, Firefox, Mozilla, Netscape and Camino on Mac OS X and Windows.

Also added: New collaboration tools. Support for Windows Vista. Searchable docs. Video tutorials (online or on your iPod). Pitch and doppler audio FX. Loader screens in the web browser. Drop-in support for .NET libraries. The ability to paint textures.

"Creating really cool 3D online games and other web content just got a lot easier, " says CEO David Helgason. "There simply is no other browser plugin which is both cross-platform and able to do modern 3D graphics."

Unity 1.6 is available today for trying and buying at unity3d.com. It is provided as a free upgrade to current Unity 1.x customers.
