Simplified the image viewing function


Written the texinfo manual. No code improvement (sorry)


Minor changes, ELPA
Resized the icons to suite the 24x24 pixel standard
Added a new Misc menu for comment, uncomment and doc lookup
Fixed the pov-open-include-file function to prompt to existing files
Added pov-mode-pkg.el for Elpa


Bug fixed and solved the InsertMenu issue
Dropped xemacs compatibility (I can't maintain this). Cleaned code.
The InsertMenu becomes just an add-on. Added the code to turn on and
 off the support to this feature.
Added the control to the Errors with exit code 0 (!)
Added the var "pov-isosurface-keyword" that was declared but void

Added documentation (thanks to Xah Lee)
Solved the InsertMenu question with the POV-Ray team. Thanks to
 Christoph Hormann <>, one of the authors of
 the InsertMenu. This package is covered by the POV-Ray license.
There is a commented function pov-online-search for keyword
 lookup in the on-line documentation, but still needs a lot of


Got rid of the and bug-fix
Fixed a bug in the killing of processes. Now it use
 delete-process, no more kill-process, that just send a kill -9 and
 doesn't run the sentinel.
Got rid of the shell script Now pov-mode can find the
 insert-menu without problems. This remains available for user's
 customization. The path to pov-ray must be set by the user. However
 it uses the default installation path of the official povray release.
Rebound the keystrokes, so they are more comfortable and consistent.
Added a pair of missing keywords.
Added some documentation in the commentary


Added a lot of keybindings and bug fixed
Fixed a minor bug that prevented the viewer to get the file name. This
happens when the path directory is too long and the output of povray
wrap words. I didn't discard the old code. If the buffer search fails,
it use the basename of current buffer appending the default extension
(png for unix, bmp for windoze). Added a lot of keybindings for
rendering and viewers.


Fixed imenu bug
Cleaned the InsertMenu directory and added a pair of templates. If you
like this mode, please *donate* a spare scene to be inserted in the
InserMenu. Fixed the imenu critical bug that messed up the menubar.
Not tested with xemacs I consider this release quite stable. If you
find a bug feel free to contact me. I'll try to fix it.


Menus for rendering and preview
Added a menu for rendering and one for the preview. I didn't use the
lisp libraries, just modified the keymap. Needs testing with xemacs.
Upgraded to POV-Ray 3.6


Some bugs fixed
Fixed a portability bug. Use browse-url instead of browse-url-generic
Use the customize-group browse-url to choose the browser. Thanks to
Xah Lee for point this out. leaned code for compilation. However
something still remains for suspect compatibily with Xemacs. Please
let me if Xemacs works with this package leaned code and dropped
prehistorical releases of (X)emacs that don't support customization.
Exists the old package. If you stuck with older versions, use the
older version of this package too. ;-)


Added the tool-bar
Created the tool-bar for GNU Emacs 22.1 (and maybe for previous releases
If you are running GNU Emacs < 22 and the toolbar works (with 2 icons,
for view and for rendering, let me know)
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
