This past week NVIDIA announced the availability of FX Composer 2 (Beta 3) for public download, marking the first time a beta revision of the shader-authoring software has been made publicly available. Key feature set highlights include cross-platform support for DirectX 9 and OpenGL, as well as HLSL, COLLADA FX Cg, and Cg FX; full COLLADA asset management and portability is also included.

For the time being, FX Composer 2 is being bundled with mental mill(TM) Artist Edition as well, allowing for the visual authoring of shaders -geared towards artists- with supported exportability to FX Composer for further work/refinement.

Full itemixed feature list as well as links to beta and documentation downloads are available on the NVIDIA developer site, here.
