Functy 0.24 released

  • 29 May 2012

I’m very pleased to announce the release of Functy version 0.24, which can now be obtained from the downloads page.

The main changes from the previous version are the following.

  • Addition of the new curve function type. This complements the existing Cartesian and spherical functions by allowing parametric curves to be defined with cross-sections based on cylindrical co-ordinates.
  • All function types can now be rendered either using the CPU (as before) or entirely using the GPU.
  • GPU rendering provides per-pixel lighting calculated using the derived normal function (rather than using interpolated normals as used by most per-pixel algorithms).
  • Available for Windows and Linux, and also as a new ARM Debian version for use with the Raspberry Pi.

Functy is still very much a work-in-progress, and won’t be entirely bug-free, so if you stumble across a problem or have any difficulty with it please let me know.

Enjoy!
