We have finally managed to release the alpha version of the Jahshaka VR authoring toolkit under the GPL and wanted to invite people to jump in, look at the code and help out. We have been working on it for 6 months now and its starting to stabilize.

For our first release, to simplify development, we built everything using Qt3d – but as a result there are a lot of fundamental problems that exist that we cant get support for from KDAB to help resolve. So we have decided to build out our own 3D engine on top of QOpenGL and will see how that goes. We will open that process up to anyone who wants to participate and will happily support anyone using it for free.

We are getting a 12 month plan in place but our goal is to have a solid beta out within the next 6 months, and a interim release in 3 months if all goes well.

We have set up a community page a Reddit for discussions and feedback
