Cesium version b27 is now available for download.
This version includes order-independent transparency (OIT), a new technique that improves the visual quality of overlapping translucent geometry to make it more clear what is in front.
For a full list of changes, see the change log.
The new Data and Assets List also coincides with this release. This list includes imagery and terrain for Cesium applications, including the new high-resolution STK World Terrain (compatible with b26 and later releases), which has up to 3 meter resolution in the United States.
See the difference for yourself in the Terrain Sandcastle example.
