Mandelbulber v2 2.12 - alpha6 - bugfix 1 - OpenCL
« on: September 04, 2017, 09:45:34 PM »

This is next alpha release of Mandelbulber program with OpenCL rendering engines. It's still experimental version with no guaranty that everything will work properly.
What is new:
- Added "full" OpenCL rendering engine which allows to render fractals with reflections and transparency (refraction and Fresnel reflectance).
- Much faster refreshing of fractal in Auto-refresh mode. Now refresh rate is 0.1s by default. Can be changed in Preferences window. With fast GPU card refreshing of image is real-time.

Fixed bugs:
- OpenCL compiler was not able to include source files when installation path (under Windows) contained spaces.
- OpenCL kernel crashed when "reflections_max" was increased when material didn't used reflections.

Great, thanks for this!

I do get the feeling, however, that Mandelbulb 3D should have a permanent website like www.mandelbulber.com, because it's pretty hard to find the latest version if you're a common layman and don't know to look on here, but that might be a bit much to ask. Maybe we could convince the owner of the Mandelbulber website to joint-host both Mandelbulber and Mandelbulb 3D on their website?

Just a suggestion.
