Giannis,

As I see it Thea 1.3 is not a technological release but rather a philosophical one as it raises an technological/anthropological debate within myself...

Will this delay me buying of a new computer?

Will this punny little laptop be able to live some more months after December?

Even if it lives, will it still be useful enough for much of my daily work (wich Thea keeps changing)?

As you see this release will be a matter of life and death for this old silicon friend of mine, so he says thank you to the team! :D

my old laptop is a 6 year old single core and it handles 1.3 about as good as it ever has, it has a SIS video card so it can't handle Presto, but my PC has a Quadro 600 and up to now its rendered 1/2 a million instance cars and I've had it using 99% of of its 1gb ram and its still responsive.. so for us starving computer power challenged people its good news!!

Will this instancing be part/translated on the plugin side of things? for example a cinema 4d instance with a Thea instance tag applied?

All the best
