Name        : paraview
Product     : Fedora 12
Version     : 3.6.2
Release     : 1.fc12
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:

This is a minor patch release which includes a few critical bug fixes and two
exciting new features.    ParaView's Python interface was revamped; an exciting
new extension to the interface is Python trace. The goal is to generate human
readable, not overly verbose, Python scripts that mimic a user's actions in the
GUI. The "Python Trace" article in the October Source, discusses this
functionality in greater detail.    ParaView 3.6.2 also includes a collection of
statistical algorithms to compute: descriptive statistics (mean, variance, min,
max, skewness, kurtosis); compute contingency tables; perform k-means analysis;
examine correlations between arrays; and perform principal component analysis on
arrays.    For more information about these filters, please visit the ParaView
Wiki and search for "Statistical Analysis"
