Moving on to second release candidate!

There are basically a few corrections - the most important being an anisotropy bug fix when using texture (all previous versions did not render correctly anisotropy on flat surfaces, when using textures, due to a miscalculation with uv coordinates).

From there on, Thea enjoys now a higher fidelity on the light control: colors and textures are automatically "unweighted" in a way so that the resulting light intensity respects given Power/Efficacy. Let me explain this a bit more: when using a white color, the power and efficacy values are defining the light intensity. Unfortunately, when using another color, there was also a change implied in the light power (for example, a very dark color would make the light very dim). But now, Thea compensates for the selected color and readjusts intensity (internally) so that the light reaches the given power. As for when using textures, the power corresponds to the brightest pixel on the texture (and the rest of the texture defines a variation over it).

The new release candidate, can be found in our usual thread:

I think it would reduce download size about 8 Mb. btw I do get download for 700 KB to 1.1 MB/sec at the moment. Some little variation...

Yes that's absolutetly not usefull to split 32/64 bits version ... for only 100 megs ... be serious ;) (It'll give more work to the releaser as well too :p)
