May I excuse for my bad english once more, Chris.

None of my programms EVER included any spyware.
That is true also for ALL Programms and AddOns and WinRobots that are for
download on my WEB-Site.

For me personally before I download ANY piece of Software, I check if I find
a statement
if it is really free and does not make unwanted data exchange with the
Internet.

So I wanted to give this statement and noone must search for that. Doesn't
mean it was in there before.

As you can see also none of these programms ever asked for or did make a
connection to the internet.

Treat it like when MCDonals would say "None of our Burgers contain
snake-meat" :-).
Doesn't mean it was in there before.

In the last days, there have been quite a lot of small, mostly cosmetic
changes to SMPOV.

Besides all those changes there were 2 annoying bugs, 99% of all users never
would have come to the point that they happen (this appeared under testing
conditions).

However today these 2 last things (e.g. RenderJob left in Que, RenderAgent
takes 99% CPU)
have been corrected, so I recommend anyone to upgrade now to 3.70 and report
me if there are
 any other things especially I would like to get experiences from users in
bigger networks.
