Hi folks,

This one is specifically for the Unix jockeys among you:

https://github.com/c-lipka/povray/releases/tag/v3.8.0-pre-beta.668


I'd like to point your attention specifically to the 
`povunix-v3.8.9-beta.668.tar.gz` tarball, which contains a dedicated 
Unix source package with the following (alleged) features:

- a much leaner package (25 MB instead of 63 MB)
- no need to run that pesky `prebuild.sh`
- all the files in places where Linux gurus expect it

Please give it a spin to see if it does what it's meant to do.


There's also an auto-generated source documentaion in both HTML and PDF 
format (povray-*-sourcedoc-html.7z and povray-*-sourcedoc.pdf, 
respectively), in case you're curious.

(And of course a Windows installer, but there shouldn't be anything new 
to that.)


Have fun testing!
Christoph
