Spoke Too Soon! [Release Candidate 4]

Unfortunately, a couple of key changes were required to rc3, rc4 is now available to download from the download server. Changes:
[list]
[*]Link libraries in the Win32 installer have moved to the lib folder. This is more consistent across platforms. Although this seems like a minor change, it does afford us stability in the installation layout for future versions.
[*]Add the bmp display to the default aqsisrc.
[/list]

Fingers crossed, still on for a weekend release of 1.2.0 final.

Aqsis 1.2.0 Release Candidate 3

I've just built the next release candidate for 1.2.0, rc3. The source tarball and windows installer are available in the 'stable' tree of http://download.aqsis.org.

Changes from the last release candidate:
[list]
[*]Various changes to the RI and shading API to eliminate x86_64 compile issues, specifically under Linux/gcc4.x.
[*]Include the (MinGW versions) of the link libraries for the supplied dll's in the Win32 installer, so that developers can link against the Aqsis libraries.
[/list]
Hopefully this will be the last candidate, barring any problems I hope to release 1.2.0 at the weekend.

Aqsis 1.2.0 Release Candidate 2

After more work than I'd hoped, the 1.2.0 release has been advanced to release candidate 2. Much has changed, mostly in the area of project layout, in order to comply with Fedora compliance regulations.

This release candidate is going to be live for a few days at most, if no showstopping problems arise, it'll be promoted to final on Sunday 4th February.

The more people that can look at this prior to the final release the better.
