New Bullet Physics 2.76 SDK Now Available, GPU Acceleration Coming Soon?
A new release of the Bullet Physics SDK has been released offering several new features and bug fixes. Interesting to note is that it says 'The cross-platform cmake build system support is improved and preparations are made towards upcoming OpenCL GPU acceleration for Bullet 3.x' So it sounds like we will definitely be seeing a GPU accelerated version of Bullet Physics sometime in the near future so PhysX will no longer be the only video game Physics engine with GPU acceleration support.
Bullet is a Collision Detection and Rigid Body Dynamics Library. The Library is Open Source and free for commercial use, under the ZLib license. This means you can use it in commercial games, even on next-generation consoles like Sony Playstation 3.
