Today, we are launching a new fix release that mainly improves the GPU (graphics card) usage.GPU
We moved the GPU texture option to prevent confusion. GPU (and texture quality) is used for the panorama preview but does not change the final rendering quality. We added a compression parameter: it is disabled by default because it creates visual artifacts in the preview (and only in the preview) but it can be useful for users that don't have enough GPU memory. Memory usage can be divided per 2, but CPU is used to compress textures. We advise you not to activate this if your panorama editor already runs well with the GPU. We also enhanced the GPU processing to consume less memory and to better the reactivity.Plugin support

( just a reminder )
The compression parameter seems to work rather well, keeping GPU memory use down, allowing me to even edit 4 panoramas without chrashing though I have to do more testing with that.
Even while having 4 GB memory in GPU it is still usefull. Did not see artifacts yet.
