The new release features a streamlined layout that's designed to easily present key information to users and administrators. A single window layout eliminates the need to navigate through multiple windows to find information.

New panels include: "Farm-at-a-Glance," to display the worker status summary for the entire farm; "Output," for displaying output images from jobs; and "Histogram," which displays task/frame render times.

Right click menus have been enhanced and a new "retry failed frames" menu has been added to simplify this common action.

The new release also provides enhanced application support for Autodesk Maya 8.5, Maya's MentalRay (.mi file) export engine, Autodesk 3DS Max 9.0, MentalRay Standalone, NewTek LightWave 8.5 and 9.0 on Windows, Apple Shake 4.1 on OSX, and Eyeon Fusion 5.1.

Qube! 5.1 is available now as a Universal application release for Intel- and PowerPC-based Macintosh computers, as well as on the Microsoft Windows and Red Hat, SUSE and Fedora Linux platforms.
