Happy birthday! Vavoom is now 1 year old and with this also a new version 1.8. The greatest new feature of this version is Quake lighting engine, also called "lightsourcing". There's static lights that casts shadows, when blocked, dynamic lights, like in Quake there's no sight checking since it will be too slow, and all lights even can be colored. And all this works even in 8-bit software mode. Also there's particles, mipmaping, 32-bit colors, for OpenGL and Direct3D also 24-bit. What else - are doing server change, so website haves new URL - <!-- m --><a class="postlink" href=""></a><!-- m -->, so update your links.
