Fyre is just the new name for de Jong Explorer- the current code is in a Subversion repository at

I haven't made any releases since the name change, since there haven't really been any new features or bugfixes, just a little internal reorganization. Our plan is to make a Fyre release after it's easy to use chaotic maps other than the de Jong with it. - Jun 16 2004

Athlon XP users are lucky, as it has wicked fast trig performance. Fyre I think spends around 80% of its time in sin() and cos(). - Apr 11 2004

Hmm, good idea. I have a dual-monitor system, currently with "Neon Filament" on my larger monitor and this one on the smaller. Maybe I should switch the two.

Fyre is its new name, but it hasn't had any releases under that name yet. You can find it as "de Jong Explorer" on Freshmeat:

It's a neat little proggie my roommate and I cooked up. The images you see are actually 2D histograms of a chaotic function through millions or billions of iterations, with a little image processing afterward for colorization and blurring. - Apr 10 2004
