QNX 6.6 released

QNX 6.6 has been released. There are quite a lot of changes, but – sady – I doubt many of us work with QNX itself. It’s quite popular in the embedded world, and, of course forms the foundation for BB10 – which has not exactly been a stellar success. Anywho, there’s a pretty big change in 6.6:

The new Screen Graphics Subsystem replaces the Photon microGUI, including PhAB, Phindows, and QNX Neutrino Advanced Graphics. Usually referred to simply as “Screen”, the Screen Graphics Subsystem allows off-screen rendering and can composite graphics from different rendering technologies, including HTML5, Elektrobit GUIDE, Crank Storyboard, Qt, and native (e.g., OpenGL ES) code.

Photon has been such a core part of QNX’ identity for me that it’s kind of weird to see it go.
