Yay hay! Luxrender is getting faster. not only with new accelerator the recent rc build also now sports a photon map render option. This should give the speed boost i was griping about earlier. Originally as planned, this version was supposed to concentrate only on unbiased rendering. But look at that, photon map is already in there. This should be the last rc before the final release. I don't know how much will they add in version 0.6, thinking about the huge changes from just 0.5. download available for all platform including 32 and 64 bit.
Changes since RC4:
- Significant fixes to bidirectional integrator (those are so significant that if you had scenes rendered with bidirectional you should rerender them)
- remove the warm up phase of the metropolis sampler
- switch to boost 1.39
- lots of bugs and memory leaks fixes
