"This is a great example of the benefits of an open-source model," said Cory Ondrejka, CTO of Linden Lab. "Our core development team is tightly focused on improving the Second Life experience in terms of stability and scalability, but open sourcing has enabled external developers to integrate additional enhancements that are also hugely valuable; WindLight is one of these. We're excited to bring this technology to Second Life and pleased to have such a talented team of developers join Linden Lab." Read more about the new technology at the links below.
