Structure Synth 1.0.0 ("Potemkin") Released

Structure Synth is a cross-platform application for generating 3D structures by specifying a design grammar. Even simple systems may generate surprising and complex structures. Structure Synth offers a graphical environment with multiple tabs, syntax highlighting, and OpenGL preview. Integration with third-party renderers (such as Sunflow and POV-Ray) is possible using a flexible template based export system.

Binaries for Windows (XP and Vista).
Mac binaries available soon.
Linux is still source only.
