Mailing Lists

Support for the OpenSceneGraph project is available via the public mailing list which is free of charge, and via professional support, training and consultancy services.

Public mailing list

There are three public mailing list, osg-users for general support and development discussion, osg-news for announcements of releases and osg-submissions for submitting bug fixes or other code. The public osg-users mailing list is the focal point for the community and is a lively forum for discussions ranging from how to get started for those new to the project and scene graphs, to bug reports and fixes, through to debates on how to utilize the latest and greatest graphics hardware.

Note that these mailing lists are also linked to Forum.

To help getting efficient answers to your questions on the public mailing lists or forums please take a moment and look over this Smart Questions document. Not only will it increase the likelihood of your question being answered, it will also help promote an intelligent and mature technical discussion environment. We also request that you sign your emails with at least your first name, this helps us keep informal and friendly threads, and overcomes a little of impersonal barriers that electronic communication introduces.

To subscribe to any of these list, follow the appropriate link:
