I think he means the AIOI still uses 3.6, as described in this thread's top message.

Indeed. It says "Kept Pov-Ray 3.6 though 3.7 has been officially released. There is currently an issue with the license of the Editor.dll, which therefore is not part of the redistribution package. Will switch to 3.7 as soon as this has been solved."

My concern is with a new user arriving at the LDraw site, and installing the package. There is no warning or guidance about the software levels. But if they install the LGEO and POV-Ray components from the AIOI they will get a combination that doesn't work.

Options:
  • Put the old version of LGEO in the package, as resolved by following the link in the list
  • Keep the new version of LGEO, but patch it so that it works with both versions of POV-Ray. (Change all the "srgb"s to "rgb"s, and set the default gamma to 2.2. At least it will produce the same output using wither POV-Ray 3.6 or 3.7.)
  • Resolve the licensing issue with POV-Ray 3.7, and put that in the package. (By far the best option from a user perspective - 3.7 is much better, and faster, than 3.6.)
