XaoS is a real-time interactive fractal zoomer. It displays any of eleven fractal formulas to let you zoom smoothly into the fractal. The program's optimization techniques save about 97% of calculations needed for the next frame to make zooming as fast as possible. Various coloring modes, formulas, planes and palettes are supported. Xaos can also record and replay animations using simple script language. Recently added features include: 10 each of out-, in-, and true-coloring modes, boundary detection, periodicity checking, unrolled calculation loops, real-time image rotation, 50+ examples, and an AA driver that provides high quality ASCII art rendering at many platforms, SMP support, post calculation filters (motion blur, random dot stereograms in animation, interlace filter, two edge detection filters, star-firld generator, emboss, palette emulation filter), and dithering on devices without user defind palette.
