What you think to release alpha version of the program in currect state of implementation of opencl? Initial feedback from users will give us input to correct core functions.
To do this release we need to integrate UI functions from perefences dialog and figure out how to compile the program with mingw.

sure, we just need to make it clear, that this is a alpha version
BTW: can i do the refactor of the cpp code right now? there are a lot of header comments missing and some code indentation stuff.

ok, you can do this now
@zebastian , can you take care about UI elements for GPU in preferences dialog? I will work with cross-compilation
I will also add missing DE calculation for pseudo-kleinian formulas

wingw64 cross-build works! I have used CLEW for dynamic loading of opencl.lib. It is actually limited to OpenCl 1.1 functionality but we don't use any functions from OpenCl 1.2

@mancoast , I hope msvc build is not broken because of clew. But I recommend to use clew, to not have problems with loading opencl.dll from different vendors.

now we need to find way how to exclude clew.cpp from build under linux and osx. Something is needed in qmake/common.pri file
