In this issue, Thomas Otahal, of Sandia National Labs, discusses the 
integration of MatLab and GnuR with Kitware’s Visualization Toolkit. Pat 
Marion introduces a new extension to the ParaView Python interface, 
called Python trace which generates human readable Python scripts that 
mimic user actions in the GUI. Andrew Maclean, from the Australian 
Centre for Field Robotics (ACFR), discusses ACFR’s use of Kitware’s 
open-source toolkits in order to manage a development environment that 
is cross-platform, supports code reuse, and is responsive to change. 
Utkarsh Ayachit provides a brief tutorial on adding representation 
plugins in ParaView. Andrew Maclean, from ACFR, discusses the use of 
ParaView in a mining research environment. And David Cole provides a 
tutorial on building external projects with CMake 2.8.

The Kitware Source is just one of a suite of products and services that 
Kitware offers to assist developers in getting the most out of its 
open-source products. Each project’s website contains links to free 
resources including mailing lists, documentation, FAQs and Wikis. In 
addition, Kitware supports its open-source projects with technical 
books, user’s guides, consulting services, support contracts and 
training courses. For more information on Kitware’s suite of products

describing an enhancement you’ve made to a Kitware open-source project 
or successes/lessons learned via developing a product built upon one or 
more of Kitware’s open-source projects. Authors of any accepted article 
will receive a free, five volume set of Kitware books.
