RISC OS Simon Wilson has released the first public version of his 3D graphics driver for Iyonix users. The software library, ported from BeOS and compatible with the popular OpenGL interface, employs the Nvidia PCI graphics card used in the XScale powered Iyonix. OpenGL based applications built with Simon's port should enjoy hardware accelerated graphics, thanks to the modest GeForece 2 MX card which, until now, has been left unutilised under RISC OS.

I certainly don't want to take anything away from Rudolf Cornelissen, but let's be sure to point out that the original work for the 3D nvidia driver was done by the utah-glx project. Rudolf ported it to BeOS (and updated it). That was no simple task, of course, but calling it "BeOS / Haiku work" is just a little misleading.
