Hi,

this is my first post here, so I would like to say thanks for the great renderer
I am familiar with since last century (about  1993). Now I am back to it and
glad to discover a lot of new features and improvements.

As to rendering CSG-based scenes on GPU, I found two interesting papers that
would like to share with you:
