Name        : paraview
Product     : Fedora 11
Version     : 3.6.1
Release     : 6.fc11
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: The version in this package has NOT been compiled with MPI support.
Install the paraview-mpi package to get MPI support.

Update Information:

Update to 3.6.1.  This is a major update to ParaView.    This release includes
several new features along with plenty of bug fixes addressing a multitude of
usability and stability issues including those affecting parallel volume
rendering. For a more exhaustive list, please refer to
http://paraview.org/Bug/roadmap_page.php    Based on user feedback, ParaView's
Python API has undergone a major overhaul. The new simplified scripting
interface makes it easier to write procedural scripts mimicking the steps users
would follow when using the GUI to perform tasks such as creating sources,
applying filters, etc. Details on the new scripting API can be found on the
Paraview Wiki.    We have been experimenting with adding support for additional
file formats such as CGNS, Silo, Tecplot using VisIt plugins.     ParaView now
natively supports tabular data-structures thus improving support for CSV files
including importing CSV files as point-sets or structured grids. We have
completely redesigned the charting/plotting components with several performance
fixes as well as usability improvements. It is possible to plot arrays from
arbitrary datasets directly using Plot Data filter. Upon hovering over the plots
tooltips are shown which detail the plotted values.    In an effort to better
support animations involving the camera, we have added support for specifying
camera movements along splines or for orbiting around objects in space. This
version has many GUI usability improvements including, but definitely not
limited to:  • Color palettes which make it easier to switch between color
schemes that are suitable for printing and for screen.  • Improved support for
temporal readers and filters.  • Axes annotations and scalar bar for 2D render
view.  • Zooming to selected region in 3D view.  • Quick launch for creating
sources and filters using Ctrl+Space or Alt+Space.
