An Open Source software that allows remote display apps to run OpenGL applications
VirtualGL features workstation-like levels of performance, quad-buffered stereo support, removes 3D data size, activates 3D session collaboration and mobility, and supports 50+ MP/second on a 100Mbit network.
The software can easily be used as a companion for the Chromium web browser to display parallel rendering jobs remotely, as well as with VirtualBox, to display Windows OpenGL application remotely.

What's New in This Release:
- VirtualGL will no longer throw an exception if a 3D application calls certain X11 and GLX functions with a NULL argument. It will instead allow the underlying X11 or GLX library to handle the error. This specifically works around an issue with Fiji.
- Worked around an issue whereby, when ANSYS Workbench 14.5 was run with VirtualGL, subprocesses (such as the geometry editor) launched from within the Workbench environment would not exit properly (and thus would become zombies.) This issue also affected ANSYS HFSS, which would either lock up when exiting or would print an error message: "terminate called after throwing an instance of 'rrerror'".
- Worked around an issue whereby, when using MAGMA5 with VirtualGL, the second and subsequent perspectives opened within the application would not always display correctly.
- Added support for the GLX_EXT_texture_from_pixmap extension.
