Hi! I didn't post a message here since some time, but rest assured that the development of next engine version continues :) Things already implemented in the SVN include:
ImageCubeMapTexture) is implemented (both reading and writing, you can even use glViewImage as a simple DDS editor).

GeneratedCubeMapTexture implementation is severely unoptimal now), and add related texturing and GLSL features:
RenderedTexturefrom InstantReality (that's easy since it's internally simpler than
