The Away3D Team & The Away Foundation are pleased to announce a new update of the Away3D Flash engine, Away3D 4.1.6. This update contains may fixes and optimisations to the core functionality of the library, and we recommend updating any projects currently using Away3D 4.1 to take full advantage of these improvements. The release has also been fully tested with the newly launched Flash Player 12 and AIR 4.0 runtimes
Alongside the fixes and optimisations, there have been several minor additions to functionality in order to assist with some problems we see regularly in Away3D use. These include:
- Automatic smoothing option on 3DS files with no smoothing group data
- Better event handling for adding and removing efffects methods on materials
- Spritesheet animator compatibility with shadows
- Coordinate system selector on lenses allowing the use of either left or right-handed projection systems
