Updates occurring after a major release of RADF are available in the Service Pack release notes. You can access Service Pack release notes at doc.spatial.com.
Note: RADF R3 is a re-envisioned update to RADF R2.
At a glance, the RADF Core has been refactored to provide a better client/server interface, and to accommodate multiple modelers such as ACIS, CGM, and Galaxy. Some key classes have been renamed, for example, RadfScene is now called RadfDocument. New features have been added to RADF that improve the flexibility of the core framework.
There have been no changes to the platforms supported by RADF. RADF continues to provide 32-bit and 64-bit configurations on Visual Studio 2008.
The most significant change for RADF R3 is the support for multiple modelers within RADF. Currently, RADF includes pre-implemented integration with ACIS, CGM, and Galaxy (PointClouds).
Scripting Engine Support
RADF R3 now includes an integrated IronPython scripting engine that can execute Python Scripts.
Command Recording and Playback
RADF R3 has been re-architected to include the concept of a Command which is a serializable unit of execution. The command infrastructure allows RADF to record and playback commands using the command line.
