All posts and recent updates
This blog aim to provide articles related to graphics in game. Their purposes are to be use as references by myself and any other people interested. To facilitate the navigation in this blog I will use this site map page.
Unlike traditional blog I would like to keep the articles up to date when this have interest. Thus every post have a version number. When I add an information to an article I increment the version and add a comment at its end with some details on what have changes. As WordPress don’t allow me to set up the link of my post and so break reference to the post when I update them, I will use this posts to provide information of last articles update.
