Readme for hfractal-0.3.1

[back to package description]
OpenGL Fractal renderer. Currently only renders the Mandelbrot set, but can (and will) be easily extened to other fractals.
Doesn't play well with xmonad - use on the floating layer.

Can exploit multiple cores - Use hfractal [opts] +RTS -N{cores} to enable this.
