No, not really, upstream seems to really want to keep development closed
and the license too, in fear of rough versions/ripoffs of POV-Ray to be
used without proper acknowledgements, and to prevent any commercial use
of the software the authors wrote.

See the POV-Ray newsgroups for more information.
