After four years and a complete rewrite in the latest technology, I’m delighted to announce the release of the latest edition of my Mandelbrot screensaver.

This new release is both more efficient and more robust that the previous release, and lays the groundwork for making full use of the multicore processors of todays high power personal computers.

Key features of this release include:

  • More efficient internal algorithm for fractal calculation;
  • Full Vista compatibility;
  • Leverages the power of .NET 3.5;
  • Much smaller download;
  • No more “divide by zero” error on faster processors.

Update 14 July: Version 3.1 now released, with improved performance.
