Lot of great progress lately:
- Much wanted image output functionality in the GUI courtesy of Seth ("Olliebrown")
- New "glossytranslucent" material courtesy of paco, see this thread for details.
- Rendering queue in GUI, read more in this thread. May not work with network rendering yet.
- Camera Response Functions courtesy of daniel90, read more about the feature in this thread. Will require some data files which you can find here, courtesy of Shree Nayar at CAVE and Michael Grossberg at CCNY.
- Finally support for loopsubdiv to handle split vertices, ie meshes with texture/normal seams.
- Fixed zoom steps in GUI, no more silly 138.69% zoom
- Ability to overlay rendering statistics on LDR images saved from GUI.
- Stop button now works again!
- Correct color adaptation for light groups (using Bradford matrices).
- Lots of other bugfixes and general goodies.
These builds contain LuxRender, LuxConsole, LuxMerger, Pylux for Python3 (only) and LuxBlend (for 2.49).
Built with Visual Studio Express 2008 + Windows 7 SDK on Win 7 64bit, using ATI Stream SDK 2.2.

edit: If you want to save jpeg or tiff from the GUI, you'll need to download the appropriate zip attached to this post (32 or 64 bit) and unzip it into the folder you got luxrender.exe in. It should create a subfolder called "imageformats" which has two dll files in it.
