We are pleased to announce that Cesium version 1.1 is now available for download.

Highlights of the 1.1 release include:

  • Support for WMTS imagery via WebMapTileServiceImageryProvider. Thanks goes out to Gilles Cébélieu for his first contribution.
  • Added an optional pickFeatures function to the ImageryProvider interface. With supporting imagery providers, such as WebMapServiceImageryProvider, it can be used to determine the rasterized features under a particular location.
  • viewerEntityMixin now automatically queries for imagery layer features on click and shows their properties in the InfoBox panel.
  • Greatly improved the performance of time-varying polylines when using DataSources.
  • New Cesium Plugins
  • The online model converter has been updated to remove the need to pre-zip model files. You can now drop a dae file and related textures directly onto the page.
  • Balasubramaniam Natarajan has created a collection of video tutorials to help people get up and running with Cesium.
