    Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. contributed Vector Math library and SIMD math library as open source under the BSD license. Bullet physics SDK will be the main repository. Vector Math was previously only available to licensed PlayStation 3 developers.

    Both libraries are optimized for Cell PPU and SPU, but also provide portable scalar version. This includes PS3 Linux and Cell Blade support. A SSE x86 version of Vector Math has been contributed by Richard Foster.

    For more info/feedback on these libraries, visit:
