There are still a few issues that we'd like to fix before v1.0 final to make it really solid, but the few weeks since RC3 have been put to very good use by all developers to find and squash a great lot of bugs. Thanks everybody or the efforts. Please give it one last round of testing before final, it's getting there real soon now. Please report any issue you find in the bug tracker, it is really helping us improve LuxRender, thanks to all those who have submitted issues.
Congratulations to B.Y.O.B. who has won the splash competition, his entry will be featured in the about box of v1.0 final.
The new binaries are available on our downloads page.
Changes since v1.0RC3:
- various fixes to bidir (more accurate and less memory hungry)
- metropolis cooldown feature has been improved and should be both faster and more reliable
- metropolis auto tuning has been temporary removed for now waiting for an even better implementation
- out of memory robustness improvements
- improvements to the GUI (most notably when saving files if no extension is present, the default extension of the file selector filter is automatically appended)
- fix for some glossy materials, most notably glossytranslucent which was causing lots of fireflies
- render queue fixes
- fix for motion blur broken in RC3
- many fixes and improvements to network rendering (deadlock fix, reset option, ...)
- fix for SPPM crashing under some circumstances
- new glossy implementation, more SPPM friendly
- improved image cropping capabilities with fully functional border render in Blender in all cases
- there's an issue with hybrid path tracing where some alpha maps leave shadows.
- using the firefly / outlier rejection feature can lead to crashes
