Latest version seems to be 1.5b, assuming I have the latest version of 
course ;-)

A pity that Gena is not actively involved into this anymore. There are a 
number of improvements and bug fixes needed and - especially - a planned 
mesh2 export which never saw the light.

Otherwise, POV-Tree is a nice tool which gives fairly good results, 
especially as CSG output, which is the old TomTree macro by Tom Aust. 
For close ups however, the mesh export is average imo, even with higher 
resolutions. With higher memory usage the app becomes rather unstable too.
