The SDL version for Linux was ported back to (32-Bit) Windows. Note that there is no more dialogbox now but the version must be started from the DOS prompt like the linux version.
Now you can capture your moves and play them pack. Try "./xparticles -y demo_movie.txt" in version 1.0 and enjoy the show :)

Dual processor option was added to simulate up to 100k particles on a dual Xeon 2.2 GHz (do not use it on single CPU systems since it slows them down). Source should compile better on most systems.
