Open Exhibits 2.5 Coming October 18, 2012

The Open Exhibits team is excited to announce that the newest version of Open Exhibits will be released on October 18, 2012.

Along with all the great new features and improvements like more efficient gesture processing, improved gesture support, support for custom gesture event naming, and an improved built-in physics engine that were outlined in the original announcement, we’ll be including a host of new open components and UI elements from the Open Exhibits team in this release, a small sampling of which follows:  

Orb Menu UI Element

Tabbed Container UI Element

Touch Keyboard UI Element

Layout System

There is also new layout system that contains layouts such as Point, Pile, Fan, and List, all of which have the ability to tween into place.

We’ll be sending out an email to everyone on the Open Exhibits mailing list when the new version is released, and you may check back here on October 18th for download information.

As always, this new version of the Open Exhibits SDK is free for non-commercial or educational use by museums, nonprofits, schools, and U.S. government agencies; commercial users and developers may purchase GestureWorks, the commercial counterpart to the Open Exhibits SDK.

    Sounds awesome guys! It’s been quite some time since I checked in on this project. Not being a flash developer, I’ve been looking for more ways to quickly develop interactives using the skills I already possess, without having to learn action script. New release looks to make some huge steps in the right direction!
