Requirements: SunOS 5 on a SPARC architecture

David writes: I've tested it on Solaris 7 (SunOS 5.7) using both the standard OpenGL libraries and Mesa 2.2 (there are two executables in the tar file.) I don't have access to older Solaris versions, and I don't have access to Sun machines without a 3D card, so I don't know if it will work on such machines.

If you have any problems with or questions belonging to the SunOS version, please ask David.

Jongl for Windows. No installation is needed; just extract the files in any writeable directory and double click on jongl.exe.
To uncompress the archives, you will need a program which is able to handle zipped archives, like PowerArchiver or WinZip.

JonglV14.8-windows-patch.zip406.246 bytes Patch to update Jongl V14.0 to V14.8 for Windows. Contains 2 new features, though not completely implemented.
a) Boston Mess operator: works on siteswap patterns (see article in Kaskade issue 91, 03/2008 ).
b) bouncing balls with correct spin (Switch this on at tab "Develop": "internal integer"=2. Select red-white balls!)
(Thanks to Ludwig Klam for these two add-ons. My connection to Jongls main code is not as good as it should be. Might be improved somewhen in the future..)

Sorry, no support any longer. I think no one is sorry about that...

Portations to be done

You use a platform or operating system which is not mentioned here? Then why donīt you port Jongl to your OS? Have a look at our TODO site. Some AIX, BSD/OS, HPUX and MacOS users have been to this site...
