FocusFusion 1.4.0 – fixes and speedups

FocusFusion 1.4.0 update is now available in the Windows Store. This version fixes two issues introduced with 1.3.7: the wavelet focus stacking being cropped too tight and small rendering artefacts.

There were also small performance improvements around memory management and caching for up to 10% faster fusion. This version also introduces the use of fused multiply-add CPU instructions (FMA) whenever available, but a the moment with zero improvements unless you have very, very fast main memory.

DWScript now support Delphi 11.3 Alexandria

Latest commits in the DWScript repository bring compatibility with Delphi 11.3 Alexandria.

There were very few changes required, and a couple bugs were fixed in the process. One test (stack overflow) had to be tweaked, apparently the new compiler uses more stack space, which caused one of the unit tests to fail in the “wrong “place.

All in all the 11.3 IDE and compiler appear way more stable, and AVX2/FMA support is nice… hopefully will get support in the CPU debugger as well soon 🙂
