luxcore nishita sky texture?

HI. Just a fast question. Does luxcore works with the new Nishita node in Blender?

Thank you

No, we are using the Hosek/Wilkie model (from 2012). Nishita is a very old model (form 1993), I doubt it is worth supporting it.

Thank you for the fast answer. Did not know Nishita was an old solution. Is it possible to download Lux 2.5? Does it run Blender 2.9?

Thanks a lot, I will give it a try for my new furniture. I am trying to do a simple, but realistic scene.
Maybe this the time to try for third time LuxCore :)
Thank you

Since this question keeps coming up (and will keep coming up), I just want to leave some more info here:
Cycles seems to not use the old Nishita model directly, but an extended model based on it. I found a bit more detailed description here:
