Serial diamond API-releaser Koushik Dutta is at it again, this time with the release of a .NET Compact Framework wrapper for OpenGL ES!

Available now from his blog, the API allows you to easily integrate 3D acceleration in your Compact Framework application. To demonstrate the flexibility of this API, Koushik has also released 'Sensory Overload' for the Touch Diamond, which also shows the Nav and G-Sensor APIs in use. It's also good fun :D

With this release and those before it, .net CF developers are pretty set to create powerful software optimised for the Diamond. The two things that bug me are that these advances had to come from a third party (I would love to see this kind of thing from HTC, together with some UI components) and secondly that the G Sensor is proprietary to the Diamond... it doesn't work on the Samsung i900 Omnia for example.

That said, hats off once again to the developer! :D
