Hi all,

it was mentioned in the lecture that ray tracing is "embarassingly parallel".
My question is whether we are allowed to use threads in the  
programming assignments.
For that we would in particular need to link against the threading library.
So to be specific, I'd like to add the following to assignment-01.cmake :

list(APPEND CMAKE_CXX_FLAGS "-pthread")

Is this allowed?

Cheers,
Leo
