Paul Nettle announced the release of his new radiosity processor, FSRad, "a complete solution for high quality lightmap generation." The full source code to the utility is included. Here's the buzz:

" FSRad is a new radiosity processor specialized for lightmap generation. Given a geometric database, FSRad will generate tightly packed lightmaps for your scene, remap the scene for these new lightmaps, slice polygons when necessary to allow them to stay within the lightmap resolution and illuminate the scene using a very precise radiostiy solution. In other words, it's a complete solution for high quality lightmap generation. The process is entirely automated, just click the big "Go" button. There are lots of features and although there is no documentation, full source code is included. This is an alpha release, and will be under part-time development for some time to come. It is available here. "

Also worth mentioning (in case you missed it), check out the Image of the Day Paul recently submitted, including some details on the processor both in the image description and in the attached forum comments.
