Multithreading changes and more bugfixes

What's new:

  • Faster sorting of render surfaces.
  • New console functions: isVariable() and isCommand().
  • No more HDR artifacts caused by the vignette.
  • HDR calculation now performs with 4 frames delay.
  • "physics_multithreaded" renamed to "physics_num_threads".
  • All thread controls moved to EngineThreads, node update can work in multithreading mode, this can get a performance boost for particle systems.
  • Number of supported callback arguments was increased to 8.
  • Log file name can be specified by new "-engine_log" CLI option.
  • Preview works only for images smaller than 4 Mb.
  • Shaders has unique id's for easy sorting.
  • Fixed selection of objects under terrain holes.
  • Terrain holes disappear starting only from 4th LOD.
  • Shadows from grass bushes.
  • Support of GL_ARB_draw_instanced extension for better ATI compatibility in addition to existing GL_EXT_draw_instanced.
  • No more stack errors while calling UnigineScript functions from the C++ API.
  • Fixed major stack bug in UnigineScript.
  • Update of benchmarking scripts.
  • More tutorials on terrain creation.

We have also successfully integrated a third-party networking solution with Unigine, now we are performing different performance tests to ensure that it was a right choice of the technology. If the testing will be successfull, our customers have a chance to get networking ready out-of-the box even sooner than it was expected.
