Official RADIANCE 3.6 release

Well, it's about time.

With Georg Mischler's and Peter Apian-Bennewitz's help, we now have a new, official release of Radiance: Version 3.6. This is essentially the HEAD release with an official designation, so the only real benefit to installing it is knowing where you stand in relation to other users of the system. Also, we have made Linux and Mac OS X binaries available for your convenience, and with the generous help of our community, will hopefully be adding to this list in the days and weeks ahead.

From the U.S., the new distribution may be downloaded from the LBNL Radiance website:

  http://radsite.lbl.gov/radiance/download.html

From Europe, it will be closer to use Peter's radiance-online server:

  http://www.radiance-online.org/software/

Note that the links to binaries may not be updated immediately for the new release. To find out what release you have installed, "rpict -version" should tell you. The official 3.6 version will say:

  RADIANCE 3.6 official release 21 Oct 2004 by Greg Ward

Incidentally, I have a number of CDs leftover from the workshop. If anyone wants to send me a self-addressed, stamped envelope, I'll be happy to mail one out to them. The postage is probably a dollar or so, and the envelope has to fit a CD. Probably most of you who have an interest have already downloaded a copy from radiance-online, but in case there are some folks stuck with a 56K modem, this is your chance.

-Greg

P.S. My address for the CD offer:
  1200 Dartmouth St., #C
  Albany, CA 94706-2358

This version does not compile on Windows for 2 main reasons:
1. The folder build_utils is missing in the distribution, so the SCons build script aborts.
2. The changes I sent to Georg Mischler beginning this week are missing. If you fix problem 1, the build process will terminate with errors.

Regards

Siegbert
