Thank you for your reports. Responses below.

I was double-checking some problem I had with camera location and lookat export to POVRay.
The problem I am suspecting is that the camera location shifting which can be done by CTRL+Mousedrag
does not make it into the POVRay export. During that I wanted to confirm that the camera location export
to clipboard (menu: "Tools" / "Show View Info...") works correctly. And voila:
there the same problem occurs: if you shift the camera by CTRL-Mousedrag, this change is not reflected in the camera data which is copied to
the clipboard. I was able to reproduce this bug also in the currently official release 4.3.

I created an Issue for this on GitHub. I will investigate, and attempt to fix the problem in both places.

I like that LDView now supports !TEXTURE elements. However, they did not make it into the POVRay export for me.
That's a pity I think, because I think adding that would be nearly trivial, compared to supporting it in LDView itself.
Or did I miss something? I tried the POVRay export with the file attached.

Unfortunately, that's not going to happen in the 4.4 release. I wanted it to be supported, and I actually spent a ton of time trying to get this to work, but I failed miserably. (So badly that I just threw out everything I did, since not only did it not work at all, but it didn't seem like the path I was going down could even be made to work.) It's obviously possible, but I decided to spend my limited amount of time working on other things.

All problem reports are appreciated. If you have a GitHub account (or create one), you can create issues directly in LDView's GitHub project. If you post them here, I'll try to create such issues for my own tracking purposes.
