gwyfract is a simple Mandelbrot set outside renderer. It uses Gwyddion libraries for false color 2D data display, selections and some infrastructure. Despite being a toy renderer, it has a few cool features:

(1) I don't know how to detect the number of processors on MS Windows and namely it's bloody too hard to use third-party libraries (GNU MP) there. Feel free to prove me wrong though. (Yeti)
