The guys from iZ3D have released the final version of their universal drivers that do not support only iZ3D’s displays, but a lot of other solutions for preparing a stereoscopic 3D setup, including even a free anaglyph mode. The final 1.10 version comes after a few release candidates and it not only contains some new profiles for games, but also a lot of improvements and fixes… still nothing new about the shutter mode though. This means that all the owners of eMagin Z800 and a few other HMDs and other setups will still have to wait for the next driver version, supposedly 2.0 that should have a lot of improvements in the shutter support. Anyway, here is what is new in the iZ3D 1.10 Final Drivers:
Version 1.10 – 2009.11.04
[+]Added Batman Arkham Asylum, Settlers II, Need for Speed Shift, G-Force, Section 8,

Finally we have a new RC2 version of IZ3D’s drivers after some quite long wait, because the previous RC1 was released in may and the new version is dated 9th September, but was made available online just now on the website. If you are new to IZ3D’s drivers you should know that they do not only provide Stereoscopic 3D support for IZ3D’s monitors using two LCD panels and polarized glasses, but also support quite a few other S3D methods and thus a lot of different hardware including shutter glasses and the free anaglyph mode. Unfortunately the shutter support is still not final and thus is not perfect so the owners of shutter glasses and HMDs like i-Glasses or Z800 will have to wait a bit more (version 2.0 probably, or not?). Anyway, here is what is new in the iZ3D 1.10 Release Candidate 2 Drivers:
Version 1.10rc2 – 2009.09.07
[+] Added profiles for “Call Of Cthulhu DCoTE”, “Call of Juarez – Bound in Blood”,
Drakensang, Rise of the Argonauts, Trine, Tomb Raider Legend, Sims 3, Street Fighter
IV, Flatout Ultimate Carnage, G-Force, Empire Total War, Battlestation Pacific,
Overlord 2, HAWX.
[+] Added Stereo Screenshot and Swap L&R keys to Control Center.
[+] Third-part d3d9.dll support added.
[+] Added additional Side By Side modes (maybe helpful for video recording).
[+] Added gap control between views in Side By Side mode to Config.xml.
[+] Added customizable matrices mode to Anaglyph mode.
[!] Anaglyph output now use normal colors in mono mode.
[!] Fixed Witcher, Fallout 3 profiles.
[!] Improved support fullscreen YouTube video (only on Vista with Aero).
