Screenshot

VisIt is an interactive parallel visualization and graphical analysis tool for viewing scientific data. Users can quickly generate visualizations from their data, animate them through time, manipulate them, and save the resulting images for presentations. VisIt contains a rich set of visualization features so that you can view your data in a variety of ways. It can be used to visualize scalar and vector fields defined on two- and three-dimensional (2D and 3D) structured and unstructured meshes. It was designed to interactively handle very large data set sizes in the terascale range, and works well down to small data sets in the kilobyte range.

Release Notes: This release fixes some critical bugs in prior versions. One of the most noteworthy fixes is the elimination of a memory leak in the viewer which could eventually crash the X server. In addition, several client/server, database reader, and Python-related bugs have been fixed. This release also features a self-contained Python-based launch script which is easier to customize. Support for parallel VisIt on MacOS X has been reinstated by building against MPICH, which gets installed into the VisIt application bundle.

Download Website 26 Mar 18:24 plumb 3.0.0

Screenshot

plumb is a shell with focus on pipes: instead of pipelines, it can build large graphs of processes (nodes) and pipes (edges). Pipes are simple unidirectional streams without side effects. Traffic can be controlled by virtual processes (which are nodes just like real processes, but are implemented in plumb for minimal overhead). Virtual processes can split, merge, regex filter/alter, and shape the streams. Timers and starting/stopping processes or even rewiring the script on the fly are also supported. It is portable (using libporty) and behaves exactly the same way on Linux, Windows, Mac OS X, many BSD variants, and older UNIX systems.

Release Notes: This is the first release of the third rewrite of plumb. It features starting/stopping processes, piping, a rich set of virtual processes for text and binary streams, a virtual process for executing plumb script commands' runtime, and a utility for drawing internal states from dumps. Plumb has been tested on multiple operating systems using the supplied regression tests.

The data can be extracted using XPath 2.0, XQuery 1.0, and JSONiq expressions, CSS 3 selectors, and custom, pattern-matching templates that are like an annotated version of the processed page. The extracted values can then be exported as plain text/XML/HTML/JSON, or assigned to variables to be used in other extract expressions or be exported to the shell. There is also an online CGI service for testing.

Release Notes: This release added JSONiq support with functions/objects/arrays/literals, improved the command syntax by allowing grouped command line options to apply them only to certain pages/links, changed the input/output formats, added support for exporting variables to the shell, fixed several HTML parsing/serialization bugs, changed the syntax of extended strings (from "..$var;.." to x"..{$var}.."), added more HTTP options (different methods, ports, authorization), and made various other minor changes.
