A new version 0.8 of Arbaro is released. See

Comparing with version 0.7 there are the following
major changes:

- pictures explaining the parameters 
- direct POVRay invoking option 
- using mesh output the tree consists only
  of two meshes: one with all the stems and another
  with all the leaves. (You can give the triangle
  number of a leaf using disc1 ... discN for the
  Leaf parameter, for special purposes you can use
  Leaf=shpere (spherical leaf), it's aproximated
  by an ikosaeder, see desert_bush.xml as an example)

Plans for the next versions:

0.9 - support multiple trunks (for bushes and shrubs)
    - add leaves that aren't totally flat - e.g. for palms
...1.0 - fix all small bugs and quirks
       - more realistic trunk (bumps and displaced lobes)

maybe later: blossom and fruits, more species, special
      features for coniferes, e.g. needles on all stem levels.
