Just played around with v2.05. Is it possible, that the mandelbox-extended has no julia mode? Tried to transport a 1.x mandelbox to extended, but allways had the mandelbrot set afterwards. Didn't find something useful within the extended options. Remaining confused...  What ?? !!

Extended formulas are temporary things. It was very good training for mclarekin how to do programing (he started from very basics) and user interface elements. There was great job done, because now we have a lot of elements which can be used to create many simple formulas and transforms.
Below there is actual development plan:

0. Mandelbulber 2.06 will get rich command line interface (true headless) and Rendering Queue feature. It's mostly done and now we are doing extensive debugging. I hope to release it within next two or three weeks.
1. In Mandelbulber 2.06 we will keep extended formulas as they are now, with remark that they are still in alpha phase and can be modified (removed) in near future.
2. In 2.07 I'm going to increase number of maximum number of hybrid components (for instant 10). Now is only 4 which could be too less in some cases.
3. Transforms created by mclarekin will be convert to separate formulas, which in name will have 'transform' to indicate that they cannot be used as single formulas
4. Each hybrid tab will have additional two options: add_c (user will decide if add C constant for given formula - now it's hardcoded in formulas), check_bailout (if given formula will check bailout condition)
5. We will add option to repeat hybrid loop from selected formula (now always repeat from first)
6. I'm going to dig FF to find as many applicable formulas as it is possible and implement it into Mandelbulber. I'm counting on help from FF members.

Release 2.07 will be focused on fractal formulas. Now application framework is mostly done (uhhh... it took 2 years), so it's good time for it. Before it there was too much coding to do, so I had no time to do it. I also wondered if new program structure can handle all needed features.
I'm going also to release user guide which will describe how to add new formulas to Mandelbulber code (code structure, needed tools, compilation).

This is a very good thing. My parents can not code , I can with support, whereas my children could  easily code formulas for Mandelbulber. In the future more and more people will have the ability to code their own custom formulas. With a tool such as QT Creator,  coding your own custom formulas is already within the reach of most of us, with maybe only a little bit of guidance needed.

Mandelbulb V1.##  had five hybrid slots and that was not quite enough, so 10 sounds good.  With the ever increasing number of formulas/transforms  V2.07 will give users an incredible amount of options where you can select only the transforms you want and place them in any order you want.

  3. Transforms created by mclarekin

To clarify "transforms coded by mclarekin". Most of what I have done has been breaking up and repackaging what already existed, plus adding some new stuff with assistance from M.Benesi and DarkBeam.


When V2.07 is released,  Buddhi and Zebastian will  provide me with 99%  of what I had previous had to do in OpenCL Custom Formulas, in a much more user friendly UI, . A comprehensive "build_a_loop". afro
