- Added support for Max 2021 - 2022 - Added support for OSL Maps - Fixed bug in 2.13 in which VRayBitmaps wasn't showing as missing.

2.12

• Fix script error for run_count_2_08.php • Arnold Renderer support added • Some users reported waiting a long time for the script to launch: this was because of the Auto-Update check and Run count php script. Relink Bitmaps, when ran, checked to see if there was an updated version from this site and also incremented a counter (run_count_2_08.php) to keep track of runs. • All WebRequests sent to this site have been removed except Auto-Update which has been moved to a button.
