turns out that, so far, there are only two things on that list.  :-)

one is that 'povr' displays "povray: I/O restrictions are disabled".  confused.
the 'povray.conf' file contains (edited):

[File I/O Security]
;none       ; all read and write operations on files are allowed.
;read-only  ; uses the "read+write" directories for writing (see below).
restricted  ; uses _only_ "read" and "read+write" directories for file I/O.

; [Shellout Security] determines whether POV-Ray will be allowed to call
; scripts (e.g. Post_Frame_Command) as specified in the documentation.
; Specify one of the 2 following values:
; - "allowed" means that shellout will work as specified in the documentation.
; - "forbidden" means that shellout will be disabled.
[Shellout Security]

have not yet tested whether it's just the displayed info.

the second problem is a "third party" scene which fails:

==== [Parsing...] ==========================================================
FILE FOUND - Including ../...../L_01_04.inc
File '/home/jr/POVr/share/povray-3.8/include/transforms.inc' line 92:
Parse Error:
Cannot pass uninitialized identifier to non-optional LValue.
Fatal error in parser: Cannot parse input.
Render failed

that scene works fine with 10064268.alpha.

have not, so far, found the time to re-read the various newsgroup posts wrt
'povr' specific features and changes[*], so will probably use it just as an
alternative to the 10064268.alpha.

[*] maybe you can put all those together, in some text file.

regards, jr.
