Fractron 9000 beta 0.4 available

Fractron 9000 is a GPU accelerated fractal flame renderer for Windows. Requires a video card that supports OpenGL 2.0 (OpenCL or CUDA recommended). Also Requires Microsoft .NET framework version 2.0.

Version 0.4 Beta
 - Added support for OpenCL rendering
 - Added support for rendering through OpenGL and the host CPU
 - Switched to .NET framework 2.0 instead of 3.5
 - Fixed a bug that caused poor anti-aliasing quality
 - Added option for JPEG image output
 - Added option for PNG transparency
 - Added "bulge" variation
 - Got rid of cuda9k.dll. The program now links directly to nvcuda.dll.
 - Improved error handling and reporting

Rendering fails with NVIDIA R256 driver branch (using any device) - the list is growing  :P

Hello, I'm the developer for Fractron 9000. If you have a chance, could you send the error details to mthiesen(at)gmail.com? Hopefully I'll be able to track down the problem.

Is the OCL kernel in this beta being vectorized? The performance of my HD5870 is definitely sub-par to NV's GF100.
