Hi Jerome,

Yes, all existing customer will get the update for free.

I did a last check now and when the documentation is online,
i'll send out the new builds.

and maybe to explain the main updates in zfilter 2 :

- the new fblur shader performs much faster and works great in low performance situations
- the layer / hotspot filters allow for example blurring simply like set(layer[xyz].blur, 10);
- the support for kprano 1.20 phase allows to blur the pano, but not the hotspots
- the support for kprano 1.20 order and a new internal order allow new looks by order changes
- and ofc those fun shaders work great for transitions or intro effects

best, index
