Santa and His Elves Deliver Release of Tech Soft 3D's HOOPS® v18.0

Packed With Gifts for Good Developer Girls and Boys, the Latest HOOPS Version Makes Its Worldwide Release Just in Time for the Eggnog

BERKELEY, CA--(Marketwire - December 22, 2009) -

Twas the night before Christmas and all through the world,
Developers were sleeping; snug in bed they were curled.
Their computers dark from a final unplugging,
After hours spent coding and fixing, debugging.

Tossing and turning, tho' their rest was much needed,
Dreaming their letters to Santa would this year be heeded.
What software would lay wrapped 'neath the tree?
Please Santa, thought they, make it HOOPS version18!

When up on the roof, a soft landing was heard,
A sleigh parked with the soft sound of a bird.
Santa whistled and looked at his landing device,
(His new SantaSafe app made delivery so nice).

"High performing, ho ho, and so visually rich!
GPU Shaders!" Santa boomed, "working without a hitch.
Plus out-of-core point clouds for my scanned excursions,
And a new OpenGL2 Driver -- oh what a version!"

So happy was Santa with the test of HOOPS beta,
He proclaimed, "Tis no better way to render your data!"
He filled up the stockings and the trees made aglitter,
With this gift from Tech Soft (who can be followed on Twitter).

Come morning, the developers clicked "download now" with glee,
Praised the performance, the rendering, the improved static tree.
"Happy Hanukkah, Joyful Kwanzaa, Merry Christmas," Santa yelled,
"With HOOPS Version18 many apps you shall sell!"
