The POV-Ray site has recently updated their news site with a range of nice bits of information as well as distributed rendering solutions. One that certainly should draw the Blender community's eyes is a newly updated tool from Theo Gottwald.
Theo has certainly been busy with his newest version of SMPOV, an add-on for SMP and distributed network rendering for POV-Ray 3.6 and Mega-POV 1.1. It supports multiple rendering topologies and the site itself has some great instructions for use and benchmark tests. Currently for Windows only, this tool will certainly give a boost to POV-Ray users.
