The Croquet project is an effort to develop a new open source computer operating system built from the ground up to enable deep collaboration between teams of us. It enables this communication by acting as the equivalent of a broadband conferencing system built on top of a 3D user interface and a peer-to-peer network architecture. It uses an OpenGL API-based graphics engine and a semi-retained graphical engine pipeline with dynamically composeable objects,. Software developers can make direct calls to the OpenGL library making it possible to extend the rendering engine in virtually unlimited ways. The open source SDK 1.0 Beta allows experienced software developers to work with this first complete release of Croquet.
