Open Inventor now LGPLed

Hi, this is not currently GNOME specific, but I think worth mentioning...

SGI has released Open Inventor, the most advanced 3D graphics API built on top
of OpenGL, under the GNU LGPL.  This provides an important component for a 
multimeida desktop environment, a easy-to-use, high-level, object-oriented 3D
graphics API (OpenGL is rather low-level). VRML-type graphics on GNU/Linux 
now is a piece of cake.  Among all the news of the GNOME Foundation, 
Open Inventor can form an important part of the future of GNU/Linux and GNOME.
