Release Notes: This application was ported to Qt4, with a significiant code rework. Apart from the shinier Qt4 "look", and automatic use of multisampled rendering when supported by OpenGL, there are no new features.
Release Notes: Updates were made for Debian Etch and Ubuntu Edgy. No new program functionality was added.
Release Notes: The main addition in this release is the ability to export the terrain as a texture map, with or without relief shading. A DEM (Digital Elevation Model, or height field) and normal map are also written. For planets, the textures are a cylindrically projected latitude/longitude map (this is directly usable as a spheremap in POV-Ray). The illumination direction is now controllable from the GUI, and swirly spiral weather systems can be added into the clouds.
Release Notes: Now also builds .debs for Debian Sarge and Ubuntu Breezy (available from sourceforge). There is little reason for users with a working 0.3.0 to upgrade: one minor GUI improvement, and the random number generator switches to use the boost mt19937 implementation. For those building the code themselves, please note that the boost C++ library is now required ("libboost-dev" package on Debian).
Release Notes: This version adds the ability to export meshes to Blender, the option of generating a layer of clouds, control over the viewer window's background colour, and some built-in documentation.
Release Notes: Multiscale Perlin noise is now provided as a terrain generation option. River generation was improved, particularly with regard to memory consumption and feedback to the user when the formation of large lakes stalls progress.
Release Notes: The GUI was overhauled by separating the control and display frames, splitting the controls into tabs, and using the Qt dialog to save. Support was added for emissive oceans/lakes/rivers and a simple flight-simulator mode allowing you to explore your creation close up.
Release Notes: This release adds an OpenGL display list rendering option, frame-rate display, and user documentation. It also fixes Red Hat 9 build problems.
Release Notes: Colors (of the oceans, rivers, shoreline, snow, and high and low terrain) can now be adjusted from the GUI controls. Some minor bugfixes have been added.
