GNU XaoS for Mac3.5

20 July 2009

Real-time fractal zoomer.

What is GNU XaoS for Mac

GNU XaoS is an interactive fractal zoomer. It allows the user to continuously to zoom in or out of a fractal in a fluid, continuous motion. This capability makes XaoS great for exploring fractals, and it's just plain fun!

XaoS can display many different fractal types, including Mandelbrot, Barnsley, Newton, Phoenix, and many more. Fractals can be rendered using various coloring methods and planes for an almost endless variety of images. XaoS also supports switching between Julia and Mandelbrot sets for each formula.

XaoS includes many animated tutorials that make learning about fractals fun and easy. These tutorials are also a great introduction to all of XaoS's features.

XaoS is free software, licensed under the GPL. It was originally written by Thomas Marsh and Jan Hubicka, and it is currently maintained by Zoltan Kovacs. Countless other improvements have been contributed by volunteers around the world. Because it's free software, anyone can help improve XaoS.

What's new in GNU XaoS

Version 3.5:
  • New Portuguese translation
  • Fixed crash bug when using -render command line option with user-defined formulas
  • Updated documentation to reflect support infrastructure move to Google Code and Google Groups
  • Additional fractal examples

Under 10.8.2 Mountain Lion, this (sadly) stutters, stalls and essentially fails. At least for me.

This is a great tool. We are just about to download the latest version and try it out. The only new feature we are interested is the deeper zooms. However, the other features look very attractive. If you like this software then consider supporting the project. The previous version were great. This looks like a great number of major improvements. Great work!

Easy to use and perfect to handle. Simple and good. What else can I say? Well maybe some infos about the different Fractals like Sierpinski or the Koch snowflake would be interesting for many "amateur" users who like what they see but would know a bit about it. Who is Benoit Mandelbrot? What does this formular mean? Anyway, many thanks for that flawless app.

I just gave it a try and I think it is wonderful! I couldn't find any Lyapunov fractals in the program, but hey, its great as it is, and free :-).
