Luminance HDR 2.1.0

We are pleased to announce a new version of Luminance HDR. We are changing Luminance HDR deeply, re-factoring a lot of the legacy code. We are trying to add new features and at the same time take out the maximum from new multicore machines using new development techniques. This version is absolutely a big improvement for Windows users, which will experience a more stable and faster software. I do not want to list all the changes we made for this version, it will be too long, but we are definitely waiting for your comments in order to bring out a version 2.1.1 really quickly with all the improvements and the bug fix that Luminance HDR may require.

Note [Mac Users]: This version of Luminance HDR runs only with Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard and Mac OS X 10.7 Lion, in 64-bit native. We do not think to release a 32-bit version anymore, so Mac OS X 10.5 users should stick to the old version.
