Hello,

I released the 0.0.5 version of MCPov (montecarlo path tracing patch for
MegaPov).

Binary for Windows and source code modification can be downloaded here :

http://pagesperso-orange.fr/fidos/MCPov/MCPov.html.

Main changes from 0.0.4 are as follow :
- bugfix : crash with high mc_max_diffuse_bounce. Now max value is 125.
- compilation : problem with gcc 4.3.1.
- speedup : russian roulette optimisation added.
- speedup : new keywords for stop using portal when comtribution negligeable.
- speedup : new keywords for control of the russian roulette feature.

I updated the web page for help on new features.

Regards,
Fidos.

Great and thank you for your efforts. Especially for your
good documentation of the mc-features.

It is fun to play with MCPov and I really like the fact that
you can decide quite quickly if a render is worth it running
overnight.

Hoping to get my hands on a QuadCore or any multicore processors and try 
it out. :)
