Release version 1.2.4 of Tonatiuh

Tonatiuh release 1.2.4 is now available. This new version of Tonatiuh is another minor release of the program. It incorporates the following features:

  • The scripting capabilities have been increased to the point that in this new release of the program any operation and functionality available to the users via the Graphics User Interface is now also available via scripting.
  • The resolution of a bug that produced the unexpected closing of the program when the user tries to cast rays before creating the concentrating geometry.
  • The resolution of a bug associated with storing a given Tonatiuh "scene" under very particular and uncommon conditions.
As in previous releases we are providing 32 and 64-bit installers of this new release of the program for the three major operating systems: Windows, Linux, and Mac. The installer for the Maxc OS is the same for both the 32 and 64 version of the program. While we have been able to test the 64-bit version of Tonatiuh release 1.2.4 for Windows 7 and Linux, we have not tested the 64-bit version of Tonatiuh for the Mac OS. Thus, please, let us know how it works for you.

In February 20 we expect to release the next version of the program. Please, let us know your suggestions for the new functionality you would like to see incorporated in the program.
