Scripted animation (November 2000)
Animation can now be done in DataViewer using Python scripts rather
than hardcoding it in c++. This allows the current scene to evoluate
in a more flexible way. For more details, see the user guide.
Extra buffer (November 2000) An extra
geometrical buffer has been added so that the current scene can be
saved into it and compared with later results of the Draw function. For
more details, see the user
Exporting (September 2000) DataViewer
can now export the current scene to a variety of 2D and 3D formats,
including scene files and POV-Ray. In particular, when exporting the
scene to the POV-Ray format, the position of the output objects and
camera corresponds almost perfectly to the position of the scene in
DataViewer. The exporting features are available for all DataViewer
applications. For more details, see the user guide.
User Guide (September 17 1999) The user guide
for DataViewer is now available in the
documentation section. This manual describes
the features of the program that are common to all its
Scene Files (January 7 1999)
A new demostration module has been added to the
DataViewer distribution which is usable for
a wide range of problems. It provides an input file
format for DataViewer objects so that scenes may be developed
without writting C++ code. A reference is available
in the documentation section.
Packages (October 1 1998)
DV and its demos have several prerequisite packages
that need to be installed. All of the required software
can now be found on the
availability page. The versions
available there will be ones which are known to work with DataViewer,
but are perhaps not the newest. Pointers will also be provided
to where one can get new versions if you so desire.
Release (July 14 1998)
The first public release of DataViewer is now available! It can be found
on the availability page.
