Wings3D is fine for lighter tasks with an awesome POV exporter too,
But sure Moray was awesome ! I just whish man power would gather up more,
instead of thinning out.

Hi Eric,

I will release the Moray source by the end of this month.

I have the latest source with updates from Lutz. I'm not yet ready to 
drop it as-is, so maybe you win that bet.

However I would like to invite anyone who wants to assist in testing the 
code to email me. You will need a github account, as the repo will 
initially be private; once I know the account details I can grant 
access. I will be working on setting the repo up today or tomorrow.

Great! That's the most pragmatical solution. As a pov user, I prefer that people
who keep asking for Moray revival can start relieving you of that burden
themselves, so you can keep doing stuff more central to pov. such as your
current funding, backing up, restoring, empowering new devs as you did with
Clipka, etc. Thanks for caring!

Update: still working on the code, primary remaining task is to change 
all the copyright headers prior to pushing it to github.
