We’re pleased to announce the release of Cesium 1.18. Here are the highlights of the new release:
- Reduced the amount of CPU memory used by terrain by ~25% in Chrome.
- Added a Sandcastle example to “star burst” overlapping billboards and labels.
VRButtonwhich is a simple, single-button widget that toggles VR mode. Cardboard for mobile is supported. More VR devices will be supported when the WebVR API is more stable.
For more details and the full list of changes, see the change log.
