updated build settings for Nuke 11.0 compatibility.
re-factored caching calls within engine to avoid access deadlock

updated log output to print to stdout.
Bokeh will now watermark the output when no license is valid vs. aborting the render.
updates to support Nuke 9.0
changes to kernel generation and initialization to avoid locking issues.

initial Nuke 7.0 support
Y stretching when data window covers negative values

added blade curvature to kernel parameters
more accurate proxy handling
fixed cache slow downs
fixed issues causing slow initial renders when roto and scanline renderer connected
improved corrective slice compositing
fixed issue where deep images we’re being forced to validate by nuke, so we have to handle that internally
tried to speed up pre-pass calls with an input ScanlineRender
fixed issue where front/back region output was incorrect
changed how nan values are handled
fixed bug where image would render black if focal plane was equal to the only depth value in the image
fixed deep image issues where out of range pixels were sorting incorrectly leading to vector::_M_fill_insert errors
added “expand to bounding box” option in the kernel tab to adjust the images output bbox to fit the max kernel size
fixed bug where inf depth values would result in erroneous depth slice results
fixed alpha compositing with deep images that resolves subtle alpha artifacts
improved corrective slices for deep images
bloom works again
fixed corrective slices ( to more closely match 1.2.1 )
resolved cache issues with deep images ( causing “can’t access deep row” errors )
fixed update crash, this caused instability when adjusting parameters while Bokeh was still updating
fixed bug that caused Bokeh to crash when the input was disconnected while updating
refactored how the plugin handles multiple threads to avoid locking
cleaned up interface to avoid screen space abuse
added custom filmback size and disabled aperture w & h when not selected
added feet and inches as a world scale option
refactored real world lens equations
removed lens style option in favour of a more correct default
we’ve removed the zeiss formula input and reverted back to the traditional ( 1730 ) value, most of our newly derived equations are based on this. If you need it back for some reason email firstname.lastname@example.org.
solved minute kernel coefficient mismatching artifacts
