Update to Arnold 184.108.40.206: the latest bug-fix version of Arnold is included, with many important fixes over 5.0.0.
Live rendering improvements: more parameter changes will be reflected in live rendering.
Enum shader parameter updates are applied. (#174)
Matrix shader parameter updates are applied. (#176)
Shaders connected to quad_light and skydome_light color and/or shader parameters, when changed, automatically flush caches and show the changes. (#173)
Light intensities and changes corrected. (#173)
Camera global and shutter settings now update properly (#3, #178)
Added missing camera parameters: a handful of particular camera parameters were missing, but are now added: (#179)
horizontal_fov and vertical_fov: the cyl_camera now can have these additional controls set.
autocrop: the fisheye_camera can now crop to the visible region, eliminating black spots where no rays are traced.
uv_remap: the persp_camera now allows a shader to be attached to remap the red/green UV space for distortion effects.
vr_camera added: Arnold 5 provides a built-in VR camera. This is now exposed, together with its parameters. Please see the documentation for more information. (#161)
Faster string operations: KtoA takes much better advantage of Arnold core AtString now, resulting in slightly faster translation time before the render starts, especially for large and complex scenes with many locations. (#177)
XGen for Maya 2018 fixes: A couple of additions for Maya 2018's version of XGen were added; multithreaded XGen generation is now turned on, and a missing library on Linux is now loaded. (#164)
#3 Shutter info not set properly during live rendering
#174 Enum parameter changes not reflected in live rendering
