This new version brings a smorgasbord of performance enhancements, fixes, useful new tools, and exciting new features, including one of the biggest features we’ve ever added to the platform…the addition of a brand new physics plugin developed specifically for the web, in collaboration with the world famous Havok Physics team!

Babylon.js 6.0 would not be possible if it wasn’t for this incredible community. Thank You to each one of you for the passion, dedication, and excitement that you pour into this technology platform every day!

A special thank you to all of you who submitted your amazing creations to be featured in the release video. What you make inspires all of us!


Massive congratulations everyone, I can’t wait to migrate over the weekend! Even more, congratulations on keeping Havok a secret.

Does this havok wasm sdk make use of simd vectorization?

Yes sir!

So hyped about Havok! Can’t wait to try it for my game… :heart_eyes:

Congrats on all of your hard work for 6.0!


Yes it certainly does, but there’s a bug in some versions of iOS Safari.

@Cedric and @RaananW for more information.

@Deltakosh @PirateJC This is incredible.

Do you happen to have or know of any comparison benchmarks or playgrounds (ammo + bjs vs havok + bjs)? There’s just so much to get caught up on here!

Really, really amazing work y’all.

on iOS we had to ship the NON-SIMD version (SIMD is simply not supported by ios in WASM)

We do!
