Ah, thanks. For being in development, it sure has amazing stability. 
There was one moment when I was wondering about the default scale of the 
bricks pattern, but I must admit I was too much in a hurry to check if 
it was my fault or if it really changed from 3.7 to 3.8 (I assume it was 
my fault)

Sadly, I'm often laughed at or considered a weirdo in the art groups 
where I post my works. PovRay ... I know it as the backend of many tools 
and for superb rendering quality. But in the communities it is not known 
at all. They all urge me to use Blender. That sure has it's merits too, 
but I just grew up with PovRay.

I think I have tagged all images in my blog and on DA with "povray" but 
I felt a bit shy to put a more prominent note. My blog certainly has 
some links to the povray pages though - just almost no one reads it ;)

I'll try making it more prominent in the notes of my better works. 
Thanks for your reply!
