October, 2017 - VisIt 2.13 released

VisIt is a distributed, parallel visualization and graphical analysis tool for data defined on two- and three-dimensional (2D and 3D) meshes. Version 2.13 contains many bug-fixes and new features. For a complete list of changes see the VisIt 2.13 Release Notes.

1. VisIt now supports OpenSWR for rendering.

You can now use build_visit to build a version of VisIt that supports using OpenSWR for software rendering. OpenSWR is an Intel software renderer that is now part of Mesa.

2. Added an SPCTH reader.

VisIt now supports reading files in the SPCTH file format. SPCTH is the file format used by CTH, a popular simulation code developed by the Sandia National Laboratory.

3. Many enhancements and bug fixes have been made to the pick and query features.

  • Improved the accuracy and performance of picking on lines/line meshes in 3D.
  • Corrected many pick bugs.
  • Changed the default for Queries that operate on either Original or Actual data from Original to Actual. This makes them consistent with all the other queries that only operate on Actual data.
