There will be further updates to this application. For the forseeable future they won't be as frequent as recent updates. Things have just picked up a bit in my job so I won't have so many free evenings and weekends. I do plan to add a feature to create zoom videos. A lot of the work has already been done but it needs more testing and I need to implement a UI mechanism for specifying filenames and numbering for the temporary images created on disk. The feature will also need a pause/resume mechaism, which will require state to be stored. At some point I'd also like to add other rendering mechanisms such as 'bhuddabrot', and 'true 3D' model generation (possibly involving voxels - need to do more reasearch). Obviously I'll be adding more colour models. I want to tidy up the UI some more and add a proper mechanism to store plot details and settings. Also documentation, a nicer skin, and perhaps even a website and/or release as open source. It's a pet project, and I'm aware of some of the astounding products out there. But this is free and hopefully some people like it. Dan
Release Notes: This release fixes 3D modeling of bhuddabrot plots. A rendered A Julia set can now be explored when the bhuddabrot equation is selected (previously disabled). Changing the colour model will immediately update any displayed plot(s), and will cause any previously rendered 3D model to be regenerated.
Release Notes: A small fix to bhuddabrot plot. A better plot when no, or a low level of, sub-samples are used. Bhuddabrot plot can now be run across multiple threads.
Release Notes: Three new color models were added for bhuddabrot plots.
Release Notes: The equation "z = z^2+c bhuddabrot" was added. The larger the plot, the more detailed the picture. Best results are achieved with a color model that starts with black.
Release Notes: Saving (to PNG) of 3D rendering could result in corrupt or incomplete images. This has been fixed. There is a small speed improvement in the sub-sampling pass.
