FLAM3 v2.7.3 released

Download it from FLAM3.COM. This release has some new features but mostly it fixes a bunch of important and subtle bugs. The change log entry below doesn't really do it justice. Thanks to Erik for his persistence.
flam3 version, rendered genome, some render statistics and optionally nick/url stored in jpeg/png headers. fixed two bugs in isaac rng code (strongly affected temporal blur). prevent final xform rotation for sheep animation. fixed interpolation when only one flame has final xform. added Supershape, Flower, Conic, Parabola, Move and Split variations. Shape combined with Supershape via 'rnd' parameter. flam3-genome now writes 'name' attribute for rotate and sequence modes. oversample attribute deprecated; supersample now preferred. new build process for windows exes using MinGW/MSYS. added 'intpalette' env var to round floating point palettes to allow older versions of Apophysis to read them. default image type is now PNG, transparency off. density estimation code revised to be more consistent between different supersample levels, which required change to default de params. limit number of de filters to conserve memory. fixed julia variation dependency on non-thread-safe random bit function. removed random number storage for radial blur variation.
