L3DT release 11.11 is available

Hi All,

L3DT release 11.11 is now available for download in all three flavours (Standard, Professional, and Pro for Torque.) Please read on for a description of the changes.

Speed, glorious speed!

This release includes some massive performance optimisations, which increases the speed of some calculations by as much as 4 times. These optimisations include multi-threading of the attributes map calculation, improved RAM usage, and optimisation of the colour map interpolation routines. The nature of these optimisations were described in September, so I shan't bore you with reiteration.

Bug fixes

A number of bugs were fixed in this release, including:

  • Problems with the main map display seen on some Windows 7 systems has been fixed by disabling halftone blending by default.
  • Texture seams in tiled mesh files have been fixed.
  • The geometry in un-tiled mesh files is now fully optimised at edges, regardless of map size.
  • The installer was updated to fix those annoying 'This installer did not complete properly' error messages in Windows Vista and 7.

Other bug fixes and changes are listed in the change log.
