Dear Pov-Ray community,

I'm interested in some old version of Pov-Ray and can't seem to  find the source
code from before the move to GitHub (which coincided wit the release of 3.7.0).
Is it still available somewhere?
I'm broadly interested in code changes between 2010-2013 for a research project.

Best,

from 1.0 to 3.62, but not all seem to have code.

I stumbled on that page. Do you know which VCS (if any) the project was using
before switching to Github.com?

Perforce (I think starting somewhere along with development on the final 
stages of 3.1) and before that just diff files (up to 3.0).

I think they all have code, but the archive naming varies a lot and 
compression formats of some platforms' distributions may not be 
supported by a lot of modern decompression tools any more.

But you would need the libraries also from that time.
For instance, libpng IIRC has mutated and is not compatible (or it was 
jpeg or tiff ?)

Also, compilers might have evolved to be more strict, and you might now 
have warnings/errors to fix for modern systems.
