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

* Shadowcatcher material:
* 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

Scarier than the original, because it recalls memories of accidentally stapling your finger.
