act of a flowing; a continuous moving on or passing by, as of a flowing
stream; a continuous succession of changes

A graphical livecoding environment for Scheme. Builds for Linux (and
sometimes OSX), and released under the GPL licence.



A big refactoring and clean up of the renderer, including some new

* Stencil buffer shadowing
* Stereo support (thanks to Alex Norman)
* Skeleton animation and skinning
* A GLSL shader library with some common illumination models
* A long awaited torus primitive!
* More control over the render loop for full screen effects 

Also lots of changes to the scratchpad live coding editor, including:

* TrueType font support
* Much better integrated documentation
* Portuguese doc translations (thanks to Glauber Alex Dias Prado)
* Built in easy access TOPLAP manefesto
* Text 'autofocus' zooming/tracking
* Live code recording and playback with key press files

There is also a new series of tutorial livecoding movies, to give you
some ideas about live coding strategies using Scheme and fluxus:

And the C++ API has been documented, for people wishing to use the
fluxus renderer directly:
