DIVERSE-Flexible Source VE API

DIVERSE is a cross-platform, open source, API for developing virtual reality
applications that can run almost anywhere. DIVERSE currently runs on Linux, 
X and Windows. The goal of DIVERSE is to enable developers to quickly build
applications that will run on the desktop as well as various immersive
systems. To avoid hindering development DIVERSE is designed without the
"center of the universe" paradigm; you only use the parts of DIVERSE that you
need. This approach allows DIVERSE to interact with many other APIs and
toolkits like, OpenGL, OpenSceneGraph, VTK and Coin.
