Gmandel is a program for exploring intricate and beautiful details of the Mandelbrot set, the classic fractal image. It displays images and allows you to select portions, and click-and- drag for enhancement. You can set the number of colors per iteration, and the iteration limit. It is multi-threaded and runs especially well on SMP machines, and can use the combined processing power in a computer cluster.

Release Notes: mpich2 is now used for message passing. You can now resize the image with real-time regeneration and define nicer color options.
Release Notes: Generalized Mandelbrot set, Generalized Julia set, and alpha-Mandelbrot set have been added to the fractal image generation options. The main window is now split in two to make screenshot captures easier.
Release Notes: In this release, a general Julia set was added to the fractal generation options, and Gmandel now uses quad float precision for greater detail enhancement.
Release Notes: This release sets a fixed X/Y ratio for zooms and shows the complete contents of coordinate entries.
Release Notes: This version supports POSIX threads, PVM, and MPI capabilities.
