    Release Notes: This release contains a new noise engine, ModifiedMultifractal, along with five new noise functions for use with all Perlin noise engine variants. It also contains a large number of new math functions to apply to the noise, a higher resolution 3D preview, a Torus shaped mesh output option, and Torus UV mapped textures which by definition will always tile. Also available is a separate 'API' version that allows the use of planetGenesis as a plugin for other Java software.

      Release Notes: This release includes GUI productivity enhancements, new noises including a faster Worley noise, and a new function called Range. It also includes a new component type called PostProcessing, and the ability to output in SGI 16 greyscale format.

        Release Notes: The Noise Menu has been sub-divided into differrent noise types. Worley noises now have a new distance metric, QuasiEuclidean. There's a new Worley noise, BiasedWorley. LinearSandDunes is a new noise that creates linear sand dunes. Three new Combiners, WarpX, WarpY, and WarpZ, have been added. These take the value generated by the left hand side noise and add it to either the X, Y, or Z co-ordinate before feeding the co-ordinates to the right hand side noise.

          Release Notes: This release introduces three new combiners: SetX, SetY, and SetZ, which replace one dimension with noise. It also has some efficiency improvements in the Perlin and Worley based noise algorithms, and a bugfix for random seed values.

            Release Notes: This version has a new noise, Solid Worley, and a copy option for noise engines. The mouse pointer is now context sensitive.

              Release Notes: This version featured five new noises (Cell Basis, Random Spline Patch, Spline Fault, Smooth Fault, and Crater), four new functions (Craterize, Erode, Rotate, and Terrace) and a new batch mode.

                Release Notes: This version can now run (without 3D previews) when Java3D is unavailable.

                    Release Notes: This release can create Terragen terrain (ter) files. It has a Summed Worley noise engine that adds the distances to the nearest n neighbours. Maximum and minimum noise combiners have been added. Dialogues have been tidied up. Invalid file names are picked up before calculating noise rather than after. There are miscellaneous fixes for bugs you probably never knew about.

                      Release Notes: Bugs were fixed. One bug allowed the default language to affect the number formatting, leading to faulty the mesh files. Another bug disabled folder navigation in the panel for loading planetGenesis saved files. The noise, combiner, and function menus now have a preview option that displays the components results as a 3D landscape. A new noise engine, MultiFractal, was added. A new distance metric was added to Worley.
