 +====== GNU XaoS ======
 +{{xaossmall.jpg }}XaoS is an interactive [[wp>​fractal]] zoomer. It allows the user to continuously zoom in or out of a fractal in a fluid, continuous motion. This capability makes XaoS great for exploring fractals, and it's fun!
  
 +If you don't know what fractals are, don't worry. XaoS includes many animated tutorials that make learning about fractals fun and easy.  These tutorials are also a great introduction to all of XaoS's features.
 +
 +XaoS can display many different fractal types, including [[wp>​Mandelbrot|Mandelbrot]],​ [[wp>​Michael Barnsley|Barnsley]],​ [[wp>​Newton fractal|Newton]],​ Phoenix, and many more. Fractals can be rendered using various coloring methods and planes for an almost endless variety of images. XaoS also supports switching between [[wp>​Julia set|Julia]] and Mandelbrot sets for each formula.
 +
 +XaoS currently runs on Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, and other Unix-like systems. ​ Older versions are available for DOS, BeoS, and more.  [[downloads:​main|Download]] a copy for your operating system today.

 +XaoS is free software, licensed under the [[http://​www.gnu.org/​licenses/​gpl.html|GPL]]. ​ It was originally written by Thomas Marsh and Jan Hubicka, and it is currently maintained by Zoltan Kovacs and J.B. Langston. ​ Countless other improvements have been contributed by [[documentation:​manual:​authors|volunteers]] around the world. ​ You can [[development:​main|help improve]] XaoS, too.
