With big help from Sebastian Jennen I have finished new release of Mandelbulber. 
This time there was focus on implementation of NetRender engine.  This allows to render the same image or animation on several computers connected with Ethernet network. The program shares and schedule work for all connected workstations and uses all available CPUs.
Other significant change is implementation of ray-traced transparency. There are used Fresnel's equations for refraction to improve realism of image.
Examples are here: 
Menger Sponge made of glass by KrzysztofMarczak Fractal made of glass by KrzysztofMarczak

What is new?
added ray-traced transparency and Fresnel's refraction
added NetRender - rendering of the same image or animation on multiple machines over the TCP/IP network (Internet, local LAN).
- shading of DOF parallelized via OpenMP (leverages shading time roughly about 1/3 on an 8 core CPU), 
added boolean functions for fractal formulas
- added transform functions for fractal formulas (useful for boolean operations)
- added several fractal formulas
- added box and spherical folding
- more ergonomic layout for IFS formula
- added log window (information dock)
- added histogram view
- application settings are saved when application is shut down
- fixed bug: saved jpeg images where corrupted when width was not multiply of 4
- fixed bug: there was noise when "stop at maximum iteration" mode was enabled
- source code repository moved to…
- fixed bug: corrected calculation of coordinates of 3D cursor when there was used 3-point perspective

As always every feedback is appreciated!

I manage a group called The-FractalBest. Our mission is to form a collection of what artists consider to be their best fractal work. We'd love it if you would be willing to contribute. The link for the group is:
If my sig appears, there should be an information link / F.A.Q. page. If not, you can find it in the journals section of our group page.

incredible stuff here.
You need a beast of a PC to render these, dont you?
I've got 2-D fractal softwear on mine but my comp starts to choke to death the farther i zoom in. I can't imagine trying to render 3-D

Genialne prace, wrócę na pewno dogłębnie przeanalizować, przy odrobinie więcej czasu.

Świetnie się bawię używając Mandelbulber'a. Chyba nie ma lepszego programu niż Twój. Dzięki!
