zoomasm 3.1 released

Zoom videos are a genre of 2D fractal animation. The rendering of the final video can be accelerated by computing exponentially spaced rings around the zoom center, before reprojecting to a sequence of flat images.

Some fractal software supports rendering EXR keyframes in exponential map form, which zoomasm can assemble into a zoom video. zoomasm works from EXR, including raw iteration data, and colouring algorithms can be written in OpenGL shader source code fragments.

Exciting things are planned for version 4, but zoomasm 3.1 "d'acord" is a maintenance release, once compatible again with latest miniaudio at time of writing, and with some small bonus bug fixes.
