  • AnisotropicFiltering
    • This new texture sampling filter can enhance the image quality of textures on surfaces that are at oblique viewing angles. There are two ways to enable this feature:
      • In AGAL, set one of the values "anisotropic2x", "anisotropic4x", "anisotropic8x", or "anisotropic16x" to the filter option in the sampling instructions.
      • Call Context3D::setSamplerStateAt with the 3rd parameter "filter" being one of the values defined in Context3DTextureFilter - "ANISOTROPIC2X", "ANISOTROPIC4X", "ANISOTROPIC8X", or "ANISOTROPIC16X"
  • New Stage3D "Standard" Profile
    • Developers can now request this high level profile when creating Context3D. Three new features are available in this profile:
      • Multiple render target allows to you to draw geometry to multiple outputs (up to 4) during one drawing
      • Floating point texture allows you to create Texture, RectangleTexture and CubeTuxture with the RGBA16F folder.
      • AGAL v2 contains these improvements:
        • Increased register size
        • Partial derivative instructions
        • Fragment depth output
        • Conditional forward jump
  • Intel x86 Android Support
    • As announced in our Flash Runtime blog, we're adding support for Intel x86 Android to AIR.
