MacGLide 0.11 released

Features:

+ New rendering engine (more accurate than in 0.10.1) allows better quality
on suitable graphics cards (ATI 7500 and later or similar NVidia cards).
Also fixes some rendering glitches such as the haze in Falcon 4.0 (which didn't
show up in 0.10.1).
To get the higher quality rendering, you need a graphics card with at least 3
texture units, for example an ATI Radeon 7500. Smaller cards like NVidia GForce
2mx or ATI Rage 128 will still use the simple rendering mode, and things will
continue to look like in 0.10.1.... read more
