Good to see another release of irrlicht. Sadly, it seems like there is still now native support for post-processing effects?

What ever happened to all these projects (XEffects..etc)?

Not sure, I don't actually have a lot to do with irrlicht anymore. Don't have that much time. This release was done completely by the irrlicht developers, without me.
