The LuxRender team is pleased to bring you the second pre release of the upcoming 0.7 version.
Based on feedback from the first pre release, we've fixed a whole lot of bugs and polished the GUI and LuxBlend exporter. I want to thank the whole dev team for its commitment to improving LuxRender. Let's shake out the last remaining bugs and don't forget to report bugs in our bug tracker
While working on this release, dougal2 and Gensher fired the boosters on LuxBlend 2.5, it's not yet ready for prime time but should be for next RC in about 1 month.

Changes since v0.7RC1: - jensverwiebe and tomb have spent a great lot of time improving and polishing the Qt GUI
- SATtva did a great job fixing bugs in LuxBlend, improving instances export and adding hair support
- LordCrc and jensverwiebe upgraded image loading to use FreeImage which brings support for more file formats
- others tried to fix as much bugs as possible in the core including some nasty memory consumption and crashes (only 28 items left in Mantis of which only 8 bugs)
