Lots and lots of changes to LuxCore and LuxBlend since the last update. Quick summary:

* Shadowcatcher material: http://www.luxrender.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=15&p=120864&sid=b41193b36c623312de32fd60c04d860a#p120864
* OpenCL accelerated imagepipeline plugins (blur, CA, bloom etc)
* Composable image pipelines (Luxcore)
* Background Alpha option for scene in Luxcore
* Variance clamping option to reduce fireflies
* Numerous improved realtime support options in the core
* Complete external UI for the LuxCore side with editors for all properties
* LuxBlend node support for LuxCore progress - it's come a long way towards being complete now
* Highly experimental Cycles node graph translation support in Luxblend
* Multiple viewport rendering support in LuxBlend (including pause support)
* LuxBlend: Increased export speed via mesh caching on core side
* Support for object local space texture/uv mapping (Luxcore/Luxblend)
* Orthographic camera support in Luxcore/Luxblend
* Guaranteed lots of new features I probably missed :)
* And of course, tons of bug fixes and other improvements

1.6 not too far off I think

The defacto industry standard OpenCL benchmarking tool Luxmark 3.1 has been released. See the announcement from Dade for the details. Note that scores from 3.0 cannot be compared to scores from 3.1. #opencl #benchmark
Introduction LuxMark is a OpenCL cross-platform benchmark tool and has become, over past years, one of the most used (if not the most used) OpenCL benchmark. It is intended as a promotional tool for LuxRender and it is now based on LuxCore, the LuxRender v2.x C++ or Python API available under ...
