    I just started to try to apply reflection blur to my christmas
baubles... but found a problem even before starting:

    As a first test, I just changed the version directive and rendered it
with UberPOV, and the garland was missing. Checking my ugly code, I
found that trace() seems to not be working at all. The attached simple
scene shows the problem: on 3.7 you get some scattered spheres, as the
trace() call finds an intersection point with the plane, but on UberPOV
all the spheres get placed at <0,0,0>, as the intersection test seems to
fail (normal is also 0).

I've already stumbled across - and fixed - this very bug myself 
yesterday :-)

In case you are using Linux, or have access to Visual Studio 2010, you 
may want to get the latest code from the "master" branch at 
https://github.com/UberPOV/UberPOV.

I would have rushed out a new beta already, but haven't found the time 
yet; it'll probably happen no sooner than tomorrow. Windows users might 
want to use the older beta.2 until then.

There is another bug in beta.2 that breaks SSLT; again, both beta.2 and 
the current master branch are fine.

Hmmm ... just pulled and I'm getting:

I last built yesterday (23rd) early in the morning ... was fine then. I 
was not getting the results I was expecting from +am3, so after seeing 
Jamies post I decided to re-build.

   Surely, just moments after I downloaded it... :) ...will try again 
with the latest code, thanks.

According to the message, the file "future.hpp" - part of the boost 
library's dev package that apparently comes with your Linux distro - 
contains two non-ASCII characters among the program code. \267 (aka 
0xB7, or decimal 183) and \23 (aka 0x13, or decimal 19), are a centered 
dot ("MIDDLE DOT") and a non-printable character ("DEVICE CONTROL THREE" 
aka DC3), respectively.

The code you just pulled probably doesn't have anything to do with it; 
something must have garbled your libboost-dev package.

Since I hadn't touched my end I didn't think it was the problem, but I 
refreshed my boost package and that was indeed the problem ... however a 
render I left running while at work (yesterday build) had an error when 
I got home to check:

Rendered 379904 of 705600 pixels (53%)
Cannot access data in file.
Rendered 380928 of 705600 pixels (53%)
Fatal error in renderer: Frontend halted render.

Dunno if it was related to the above problem ... just thought I'd 
mention it anyways

sheesh ... should have realized my pull script was snagging the master 
/not/ beta branch ... that will teach me to try to throw something 
together quickly before i've checked things a bit more

Strange one - can't make any sense of this yet.
