Hi people, just a heads up for release 0.5 of the HOT. For more info, 
sourece and binaries goto -

Change summary: lots of code refactoring for better memory usage and 
general readability (it got shorter). Eigenvalues and vectors are now 
available from ocean_eval() (eigenvectors have yet to be used/tested). 
Ocean_eval() parameters have been reorganized, and the example 
displacement shader has been updated to reflect this (see wiki page). 
See the picture on the wiki page for an example of using the minimal 
eigenvalue for locating cresting waves. Catmull rom interpolation is now 
used instead of linear interpolation so geometry stays smooth when 
undersampling.
