Phoenix, AZ: July 16, 2012 - Open Design Alliance (ODA) today announced the
release of version 3.6 of Teigha, its software development platform for
engineering applications. It is also the first version that combines support
for .dgn and .dwg files into a single SDK.
Version 3.6 Enhancements
Version 3.6 incorporates performance enhancements and a large number of bug
fixes donated to ODA by its members, as well as improvements made by the ODA
The update includes the following enhancements:
* Multi-threaded support for .dwg file loading
* Beta multi-threaded rendering support
ODA Chief Technology Officer Neil Peterson added, "3.6 is the first release
of Teigha that supports multi-threading, allowing Teigha-based applications
