XaoS is a community-supported free software project. There are many ways to get help, all of which are explained below.

Discussion Forums

XaoS has two discussion forums hosted on SourceForge. You can read them freely, but in order to post, you must to register for a free SourceForge account.

  • Help provides a place for you to ask for help using XaoS. Other XaoS users and/or the XaoS developers will answer your questions.
  • Open Discussion provides a place to discuss anything related to XaoS or fractals. You can share tips, your own fractal creations, or any other fractal-related ideas with other XaoS users.

We welcome you to join these lists and become involved in the XaoS community.

Mailing Lists

XaoS currently has three mailing lists hosted on SourceForge. Unfortunately, there is currently very little traffic on any of them. Hopefully in the future, we can get more XaoS users and developers involved in the mailing lists. The lists are as follows:

Please feel free to join any or all of these mailing lists and share your ideas with the developers and other XaoS users.

Bug Reports

If you think you have found a bug in XaoS, please report it. The developers will do their best to resolve the bug in a timely manner.

Please don’t submit duplicate bugs. Browse the existing ones first to make sure nobody has already reported it. You may add additional information about a bug by entering a comment on an existing bug.

If you are not sure if something is a bug, please open a support request. The developers will try to answer your question and can convert your support request to a bug if necessary.

Feature Requests

If you have an idea for a great new feature you’d like to XaoS, please let us know about it. You can submit a feature request via SourceForge, and the XaoS developers will do their best to implement your request in a future version.

Please don’t submit duplicate feature requests. Browse the existing ones first to make sure nobody has already requested the feature your want. You may add your vote for a feature by adding a comment to the existing request.


If you find XaoS a worthy project and you want it to be continued, please consider to make a donation. Currently the project maintainer, Zoltan Kovacs is the only person of the developers who is available to receive donations via the SourceForge system. Alternatively, you may also order some high quality fractal images on delivered by Particio BT., a Hungarian company committed to develop open source mathematics software.
