    1 03/04/2006: Release 0.4.2
    2 
    3 - Bug fix for gtk-2.8 handling of "client events".
    4 - New "Clipping" object for 3D clipping planes.
    5 - Reorganised objects in a new "Objects" menu.
    6 - Serious bug fix for isolines levels parsing.
    7 - Debian snapshots.

    9 17/10/2005: Release 0.4
   10 
   11 Important changes and new features:
   12 
   13 - (Tidal) ellipse display
   14 - GfsOutputLocation display
   15 - Embedded boundaries are represented as they are seen by Gerris
   16 (i.e. resolution dependent).
   17 - Embedded boundaries and isosurfaces can be coloured according to a scalar.
   18 - "Substract" function.
   19 - Visualisations can be saved/restored.
   20 - GfsView is scriptable and multithreaded (i.e. reads and reacts to
   21 standard input instructions).
   22 - Batch mode version of GfsView does not need an openGL display. This
   23 is useful for offline image/animation generation.
   24 - More general input of scalars: functions (e.g. U/10, sin(U+V)
   25 etc...) can be specified directly.
   26 - GfsView objects can be "picked". This is used to implement display of
   27 pointer 3D positions and scalar values etc... (hold control key to activate picking)
   28 - Streamlines 2D and 3D with interactive selection of seed points.
   29 - Automatic evenly-spaced streamline generation in 2D.
   30 
   31 20/10/2004: Release 0.2.0
   32 
   33 This is the first "official" release of GfsView. It's still a bit
   34 rough around the edges but one can already do quite a bit with it:
   35 
   36 - Isosurfaces
   37 - Arbitrary cut planes
   38 - Efficient use of the octree data structure for fast computation and
   39   display
   40 - High-quality Postscript and PDF output
   41 
   42 The main bugs currently are:
   43 
   44 - A (very) limited number of "derived variables" (e.g. Vorticity,
   45   Velocity, Lambda2 etc..) are currently allowed
   46 - Some Z-buffer openGL issues
   47 
   48 Desirable missing features include:
   49 
   50 - Streamlines
   51 - Volume visualisation
