  Hey everyone,

  It's been some time since we last made a Pixie releasem. But rest assured, George and I have been busy. Pixie 1.7.1 is out and it contains significant changes/improvements:

   - Pixie's primitive variable/shader parameter linking has been fixed. It now matches RenderMan specs more closely.

   - Network parallel rendering has been improved. The amount of work that is re-computed accross multiple servers is minimized.

   - Delayed/procedural geometry with RunProgram is fixed.

   - Pixie now supports compressed RIB input/output.

   - Windows version now comes with OpenEXR display driver.

   - And more, see the Release Notes for a more detailed list.
