The mandulia package

[Tags: gpl, program]

Mandulia provides a zooming visualisation of the Mandelbrot Set as many Julia Sets. Featuring a profiled and optimized renderer, and a Lua configuration and scripting interface.

Mandulia supports additional compile-time flags for speed, but by default these are disabled because they don't work on all systems. These flags are -ffast for miscellaneous optimizations, and -ffast -fSSE4 to use SSE4 instructions too.

Changes from mandulia-0.6: the optimization flags are disabled by default as they were causing problems on some systems; reduced visual jitter for smoother animation; smoother colour gradations; access runtime statistics from Lua scripts.
