Name        : paraview

Version     : 3.2.2
Release     : 1.fc9
URL         : http://www.paraview.org/
Summary     : Parallel visualization application
Description :
ParaView is an application designed with the need to visualize large data
sets in mind. The goals of the ParaView project include the following:

    * Develop an open-source, multi-platform visualization application.
    * Support distributed computation models to process large data sets.
    * Create an open, flexible, and intuitive user interface.
    * Develop an extensible architecture based on open standards.

ParaView runs on distributed and shared memory parallel as well as single
processor systems and has been successfully tested on Windows, Linux and
various Unix workstations and clusters. Under the hood, ParaView uses the
Visualization Toolkit as the data processing and rendering engine and has a
user interface written using a unique blend of Tcl/Tk and C++.

NOTE: This version has NOT been compiled with MPI support.

Update Information:

This package updates ParaView to version 3.2.2 and fixes the MPI version so that
it actually works.
