The new version 0.3 of the Instant-Grid CD is available for download. There have been a lot of changes since version 0.2.1, please have a look at the release notes for a (still incomplete) list.

The most notable new feature is the possibility to use Instant-Grids as render farms for the parallel rendering of single scenes with POV-Ray (multiple scenes and movies are planned). A simple Web interface to this feature is provided. You can use the included examples or render your own scenes. Please note that there is a significant overhead for each picture slice, so parallel speed up increases with higher resolutions. Happy rendering!
