Mikroschoft heeft versie DirectX6.1 nu officieel gereleased. De binaries waren al eerder 'per ongeluk' op een paar sites verschenen. Hier wat bullshit uit de PR:
Microsoft Corp. (Nasdaq: MSFT - news) today announced shipment of version 6.1 of the Microsoft® DirectX® Software Development Kit (SDK), including the first public release of the widely heralded Microsoft DirectMusic(TM) API as well as native support for the Intel Pentium III processor family.
A mature and comprehensive set of system services in the Windows® operating system, DirectX unlocks the power of Windows-equipped multimedia PCs by providing software developers with transparent access to a wide range of peripherals, including graphics cards, audio adapters and input devices. DirectX was introduced in 1995 and is now a recognized standard for multimedia application development.
``With DirectX 6.1, we continue in our commitment to deliver industry-leading technologies to Windows-based application developers and end users,'' said Kevin Bachus, product manager of DirectX at Microsoft. ``The newest member of the DirectX family, DirectMusic, will radically change the way consumers and developers perceive music on the personal computer.''
