Forgot to mention..

One totally cool thing supported by LightUp v2.1 is running LightUp Player files inside your web browser.
Thats right, you can create a html page the links to .luca files and interact in realtime with them inside the browser. Clicking on the embedded logo in the luca file takes you to that new webpage - so some pretty exciting possibilities here for online 3D.

Its all done and works great, but because of heightened security concerns these days, browser plugins need something called a "Code Signing Certificate" to ensure that you're getting the plugin from a trusted source. Man, these guys are thorough! Its 4 weeks later and I still haven't finished their security checks. Hopefully in week we should be done and I can put my John Hancock on these plugins - so to speak.
