Mandelbulber 1.05 - for Linux x86, Linux x64, Win32 and MacOS

Open source program (GNU GPL) for rendering photo-realistic 3D fractals

Free download: http://sourceforge.net/projects/mandelbulber/

Website: http://sites.google.com/site/mandelbulber/

User manual: http://sites.google.com/site/mandelbulber/user-manual
Tutorial for creating animations: http://sites.google.com/site/mandelbulber/getting-started

New features in version 1.05:
- Added Windows installer (uninstall also possible). Windows version is distributed as a Setup.exe file
- Added uninstall script for Linux
- Changed directories structure and locations. Now example and other files are located in (on Linux) /usr/share/mandelbulber directory or (on Windows) C:\Program files\mandelbulber.
  User data is stored in ".mandelbulber" directory located in $HOME folder. This change was necessary for Windows installer and to create real Debian packages (there is a chance that Mandelbulber will be in official Debian repository)
- textures are loaded when necessary
- backgrond gradient is defined using 3 colours
- added "Load Example" button

SVN repository: http://mandelbulber.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/
This repository is available from Google Code: http://code.google.com/p/mandelbulber/

My gallery with images created using Mandelbulber: http://krzysztofmarczak.deviantart.com/gallery/

Please give me a feedback how Windows installer is working and new file locations

thanx for the new version. the new installer makes mandelbulber feel more windows-like, as the folders are in standard directories. the installer worked fine on my machine (still 32 bit xp), the file locations fit perfectly.

for me as a linux dummy the packages would be interesting, as i'm not able to install bulber with the provided archives and i need soon the 64bit version, to render print-resolutions. can you tell a roadmap for the debian packages?

the "load example" is a handy extension , as it makes it possible to separate my own work and the presets easily.

thanx again

What a problem do you have during installation Mandelbulber form archive? Are you using 64-bit version of program? Please give me some details about it.
About debian packages I don't know any timeline. Now it don't depend on me. Debian package is done, but now it's waiting for approval (http://ftp-master.debian.org/new/mandelbulber_1.05-1.html).

ok, i think i didn't try hard enough. i got over my averseness to the command line and made it praying
there was only one library missing, libpng12-0 or so. only libpng14 was installed. after installing the 12 bulber started.  
woah, now the big ones are possible  nasty teeth
mandelbulber is working under open suse 11.4. now i only have to get vlc operational...

great thing!
taurus

ps http://ftp-master.debian.org/new/mandelbulber_1.05-1.html produces an error 404 file not found whatever
