IRIX YafRay 0.0.8

Here's something that IRIX Blender fans should be happy to see - a wonderful port of the latest YafRay to IRIX by our own dexter1, available now at a Nekoware mirror near you.

YafRay is a powerful raytracer which can be used either stand alone or as a plugin for 3D applications such as Blender. Some of it's features include full global, skydome and HDRI illumination, caustics, real DOF, glossy/blurry reflections and distributed rendering.

Lots of new features in this release - a complete changelog can be found on the YafRay site. Give it a try and discuss in the forum.
