mdz (Mandelbrot Deep Zoom) is a Mandelbrot set image generator focused on exploration into really deep areas of the Mandelbrot set, and without fanciful distractions. mdz uses the MPFR maths precision library to zoom really deep.

The palette offset setting in MDZ files is no longer ignored. Image dimensions, anti-aliasing, and thread count are not lost in new instances created by the duplicate and zoom-in-new-window menu commands.
