Release of version 1.1.0 of Tonatiuh

We just released version 1.1.0 of Tonatiuh. This is a relatively major release of the program. It incorporates a signficant new feature to Tonatiuh: SCRIPTING.

From now on, you will be able to automatize some of the recurrent taks that you do with Tonatiuh by writting your own scripts. This new release of the program introduces scpripting just as a proof of concept, we will be expanding the scripting capabilities of Tonatiuh in future program releases.

In addition to scripting, this new release of the program, corrects several detected bugs, improves the general (circumsolar ratio) sunshape plugin, facilitates the storage of Tonatiuh results (photon maps), and makes it possible to inmediately open, within Tonatiuh, any Tonatiuh file just by cliking on the file -once the user associates, in the Operating System he or she is using, the Tonatiuh file extension with the Tonatiuh program.

As always, if you find bugs in Tonatiuh or in any of its plug-ins, please, take the time to report those errors using the "Issues" tab in Tonatiuh's website at Googlecode. Furthermore, if you have suggestions on how to improve the program or increase its functionalities, please, let us know, either by adding comments to this post, or better by participating on the corresponding discussion of the Tonatiuh users group.

Best regards. Enjoy!
