Functy 0.24 released

  • Posted on May 29, 2012 at 7:26 pm

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.
