default finish:
#default{ finish{ ambient 0.1 diffuse 0.9 }}  
default finish
In POV-Ray version 3.7 with radiosity ambient is replaces by emission.
With radiosity on ambient is 0. For 3.7 scenes that work also in 3.6 use i.e.:
#if (version < 3.7) ambient 1 #else emission 1 #end  
ambient <-> emission
default gamma setting: (3.6/3.7)
global_settings{ assumed_gamma 1.0 }
#default{ finish{ ambient 0.1 diffuse 0.9 }}   
default finish and gamma setting versions 3.6.2 / 3.7
max_trace_level:
global_settings { max_trace_level 10 }//(1...256) [default = 5]   
max_trace_level 10
charset:
global_settings{ charset utf8 }  // unicode  
global_settings{ charset ascii } // ascii (only 0 to 127 are valid)
global_settings{ charset sys }   // system specific charset  
charset - specifies the assumed character set of all text strings
Noise generators:
global_settings {  noise_generator 1 }   
noise_generator 1
global_settings {  noise_generator 2 }   
noise_generator 2
global_settings {  noise_generator 1 }   
noise_generator 3
adc_bailout
global_settings{ adc_bailout 0.0039 }    
adc_bailout - sets cutoff point of ray computation (1/255 default)
number_of_waves
global_settings{ number_of_waves 10 }    
number_of_waves - sets how many instances of waves/ripples to use
irid_wavelength
global_settings{ irid_wavelength <0.25, 0.18, 0.14> }  
irid_wavelength - sets the color shifts for iridescence (irid {})
hf_gray_16
global_settings{ hf_gray_16 on } // [on/off]  
hf_gray_16 - sets image output to use grayscale only (TGA, PNG)
max_intersections: // don't use it with POV-Ray version 3.7 !!!!
global_settings { max_intersections 200 } //(1...200) [default = 64]   
max_intersections 200
