This Road Map should give an indication of the near future of the NASA World Wind project. NASA World Wind provides standadized access to public domain scientific data. This data is useful for NASA mission planning, scientific research, government activities, education, and public interest, while also readily allowing for the customization necessary to serve varying needs.

Upcoming Changes

For a schedule of upcoming changes and features, please see the Issue Tracker Road Map.

In addition, the following list serves as an informational pointer to planned significant changes to the core of World Wind.

v1.3.5

This is a bug fix release.
For more information about this version, see: WW1.3.4Bugs

v1.3.6

v1.4

This branch has been cancelled. There will be no 1.4 release.

v1.5

NASA is refactoring the implementation of World Wind to a multiplatform API-centric architecture, both in .NET & Java. World Wind functionalities are being 'off-loaded' to modular components, leaving the API at the core. The architecture of these two implementations, .NET & Java, will remain identical. The intent is to allow plugins to be used as interchangeably as possible, i.e. via Python. This refactoring exercise will also allow World Wind to be accessed via a browser. The current estimated timeframe for release is 30 September 2006.

Lead NASA World Wind .NET developer: Chris Maxwell.

Lead NASA World Wind Java developer: Tom Gaskins.
