Coin is an implementation of Open Inventor. Open Inventor is the de facto standard API for retained-mode 3D graphics programming. Open Inventor has a highly extensible design, and has been designed to allow for rapid development of highly interactive 3D graphics applications in the fields of CAD, engineering, scientific computing, simulation, VRML, and visualization.

Fixes include improved Inventor V1.0 import, fixes for nurbs, VRML97 protos, routes, and many others. This release also adds support for Universal Binaries on Mac OS X.
Release Notes: This version features intersection detection, vector rendering to PostScript, TrueType font support for SoText2, import/export of gzip/bzip2-compressed files, and more.
Release Notes: Bugs concerning using OpenAL on Windows were fixed. Other fixes were made for SoGetBoundingBoxAction on the SoVertexProperty node, extension elements (state is recreated in actions when a new element has been enabled), VRML export (the VRML node prefix will now not be skipped when the file header is not #VRML V2.0 utf8), SoQuadMesh PER_FACE material binding rendering, and enabling and disabling GL texture coordinate projection.
