The next major version of ParaView (III) includes many significant improvements, including:
- New Qt interface
- Much better support for Python scripting
- Emphasis on quantitative analysis
ParaView III is under development by a team including Kitware, Sandia National Labs and Elemental Technologies. Until ParaView III is ready for release, we will release a snapshot every month. These snapshots can be obtained from ParaView III snapshots. You may also view automated test results using the ParaView III Dashboard.
