The "time till next update" ticker counts down very quickly. Is this normal?

This one is just a quick fix of a feature that has been new to 4.4.7 but was broken on GPU.
The updates maybe need a little longer nowadays, but then they are packed with stuff that usually is also better tested then in the past ;)

It included some major new features though. You would prefer smaller incremental updates?

Hi Ono! I did some tests with OpenCL rendering enabled and environment map...the sun is off although the option "add sun" into SkIndigo is activated and the render appears very shady

i alway prefer major updates of course. but if minor update was finished, why do not publish it immidiately? people like software with fast updates, not abandoned by developers.

Indigo already has a quite fast update cycle, well, maybe its been a little faster in the past :P

Nowadays there is more focus on some deeper internal testing with a small group of powerusers to deliver a better user experience in the public beta, with less frustration that can be destructive in the long term...

Be sure, that the teams intend is to bring new features as quick to the public as possible, but some stuff gets developed parallel and having more interesting releases also brings more users to test them :)

I would really want to see Bi-dir on GPU in the near future...
