This is our first release candidate!

Nevertheless, it has also new features and not only bug fixes. For those that work with the OpenGL Viewport
a lot, they can now start a region render (in the darkroom) by selecting an area in the Viewport. You have to
click on the tool drop down menu and select the Region first, then left-click and drag to select the area
to be rendered. Even more, as a workflow optimization, you can now pin the tools/navigation drop-down
menu (a new menu appears above the compass), so you can quickly make a selection!

Another cool UI addition is locking camera aspect ratio; something very small, yet asked for so many times!
There are also various fixes for Relight and also displacement mapping is now rock solid. 8-)

The point lights can now be also described in terms of Power/Unit/Efficacy, establishing a uniform
description between point and area lights. On top of that, there is a crucial bug for all unbiased engines
(and IR included) that was adding wrong noise when rendering with 2+ threads - this is now fixed
and it basically means faster renders when using TR1/TR2/IR! ;)

Perhaps it is fixed now? It is coming (for me) with >100Kb/s.
