In order to return back to the schedule of Sunday posts I'll provide this semi-weekly batch of builds. :) Though only five days have passed since the last "weekly builds", this one is definitely not feature-free. First, these builds include the new experimental Qt GUI for LuxRender, see the luxrenderqt executable in the archives. My tests has shown it to be very promising, but it would be better for you to try it yourself and share your thoughts and findings. By the way, Qt libs were linked dynamically with the luxrenderqt binary, so make sure your system has Qt-Core, Qt-GUI, and Qt-OpenGL libraries installed. I've used version 4.5.3, but I think any 4.5.x would suffice.
Second, Dade has introduced the new Dynamic Epsilon feature which aims to get rid of self-shadowing artifacts on very large models. Try it out. Third, Lord Crc has fixed a couple of bugs in TGA and alpha channel outputs. Last, but not least, Tomb updated the LuxBlend script in terms of infinitesample environment support and exphotonmap integrator advanced options support (see this thread to find out their meaning) as well as applied the patch for proper particles export. Of course, there was many other improvements and fixes, see the changelog below for a full list.
Be aware that these builds aren't betas nor alphas. These are just testing builds of the latest development snapshot for people to play with and report their early results and findings. Please don't expect these builds to be bug-free, but don't hesitate to report about something you think is wrong.
Here are archives with all Lux tools built for corresponding platforms and CPU SIMD instructions. Grab the one most suitable for your hardware. If you get "Illegal instruction" error when starting the program, make sure your CPU supports SSE instructions set this particular build was compiled for. (If you think there should be additional builds for other SIMD sets, just let me know. I can't afford to build every possible combination, but will expand the list if there is enough interest in a particular set.)
