We have a new round of beta testing coming

Pavel and Masahiro from the Dev Team have been working hard lately to get a new Windows build ready with new compiling tools.  Pavel ran into a bad snag, and once again Masahiro found a way to fix it.  So now we are getting close to being ready to beta test the next, new release of LightZone, (read more, click the link below...)

Alert: Broken Windows Build

We are experiencing a temporary problem with our Windows build. It broke during an attempted update on July 8. We are working on that now. Those of you who downloaded before that have no worries, but those who did after that may have problems. If you have not yet downloaded for Windows please wait just a bit. The good news is that we are re-compiling with MinGW, a different compiler and one that may allow us to produce a 64-bit version for Windows. Stay tuned for update on a stable build.


Windows V4.0 Released!

Today, June 15, 2013, marks an extraordinary event here at the LightZone Project. The new, free, open source V4.0 of LightZone for Windows goes live today. Follow the new link in the block in the left sidebar for the download package. Please read all the text BEFORE you download. The Linux version should be following along shortly (some glitches popped up this week), and the Mac Beta Test will also start as soon as one key defect (defect=bug we know about ;-* ) has been rectified.

Please All Windows Beta Testers Report In!

It's time to start wrapping up our Windows Beta Test, so please all of you who have been testing report in by posting your experiences to the Windows Beta Test forum. If you still have some testing to do please try to finish it in the next several days. We want to be able to release the Windows version to the public by the first week of May, which is coming fast. I am working hard at my end on website issues to prepare (so, I think some changes are coming next week.). Thank you all!

Public release very soon!

Our beta testers have begun a second round of beta testing with a new distribution for Windows. We think this means that we are very close to a public release of the Windows version. So far no significant bugs have been found---extremely good news. As soon as we can we will also begin the Linux beta testing on Ubuntu and OpenSUSE. We have one issue that is being checked this week, and once we have that nailed down we'll start that beta testing. Exciting times for us!

Beta Testing Has Begun!

Beta testing for the new public version of LZ has officially begun. The first 20 testers have been sent their links via their provided emails. The link to the program is not being made public yet and won't be for a couple of weeks at least while these tests take place. Note to all testers: I have sent you an email with the link for the program download via the email you provided. At least one of these has bounced back, so, that is something you'll have to fix in your profile!
