The port is incomplete and has been on the site for a long time.  We
always were and still are interested in replacing Motif with QT or GTK
but we didn't have enough resources to do it in the past.  If somebody
wants to help with this feel free to contact me.

    Nelson> Java 3D API is forthcoming from Blackdown.

We've already made a final Java3D 1.1.3 release some weeks ago.  The
version mentioned at JavaOne was Java3D 1.2, we'll release it after
some further testing.
