OK. Before uploading beta 1.7, I would prefer to have a (language) check 
on the documentation that is, imo, in a fairly final stage.

@Bald Eagle: Bill, may I ask you to go through this latest version?

Note: I have abandoned a couple of older granites (CanadianPink and 
IndiaBlack) which are too close to other provided granites to be of 
interest.

Just DL'd and will give it a read-through later this afternoon.

It's been a long haul on this project since its inception, and you've put a lot
of work into this.  :)

I think I covered everything I could think of.
Will you email me - we should discuss an immediate application, pre-release.

Very good, and thanks. I need to go through this with a fine comb indeed 
now.

Yes, I think you need my address for further discussions. A little 
rebus: thomdegfullstop01atgmailperiodcom  :-)

One thing which has been worrying me a bit is that the use of mixed 
arrays just cuts backward compatibility, starting with 3.7. I have to 
test with the newest beta by clipka & friends yet, to be sure about even 
official 3.8.

However, it might be a good idea to start fresh as it were. ;-)

Which makes me think of that other 3.8 feature you mentioned earlier 
about keeping declarations between renders (circumventing #undef)? 
Remind me of its name as I forgot it. It might be good to include it 
under these circumstances.

Mixed arrays should still work; they were introduced quite a while 
before the rollback point.

There's no such official v3.8 feature.

I *think* what he was referencing was this:

http://news.povray.org/web.60b43edf388d0b7a1f9dae3025979125%40news.povray.org

Not identifier values that persist between _renders_ but between sequential
invocations of the texture-defining macro in the same scene.

"optional" that is the one.
