- Sept. 19, 2003 -- Added a volume visualization module to
MayaVi. An initial version was contributed by Gerard Gorman and
included a very nice Tk based color transfer editor GUI. Thanks
Gerard! I've improved on his code and added a bunch of new
features and committed the resulting module to CVS.
- Sept. 12, 2003 -- Made a presentation on MayaVi at the SciPy'03
workshop held at CalTech. Slides available here.
- July 3, 2003 -- More improvements in CVS. VtkPickler can
now save/load configuration from a dictionary. ConfigVtkObj is
much improved and can also be configured to generate a GUI for a
selected bunch of methods. Added option to save rendered scene
via GL2PS, this requires VTK to be built with GL2PS support. I
also contributed the vtkGL2PSExporter to VTK. Added Wavefront
OBJ export support (patch contributed by Richard Boardman).
- May 11, 2003 -- Lots of improvements in CVS. Fixes for
the Tk 8.4 related issues, fixes for deprecation warning
messages from VTK, added magnification factor when images are
saved, new reader for VTK's XML data format, new filter
ExtractGrid that lets one select a VOI and sample rate for any
grid based input dataset.

has changed from GPL/LGPL to BSD. Notable changes: added a data
picker, light manipulation kit and fixed some serious bugs.

http://packages.debian.org/mayavi. Many thanks to Maitland
Bottoms for packaging MayaVi and VTK for Debian.
- Nov. 15, 2001 -- Preparing for a new release. Quite a few
new features have been added. Most notable is that MayaVi can
be used as a Python module and be scripted from the Python
interpreter. There has been quite a lot of interest in MayaVi
and several people have been very impressed by it.
- June 23, 2001 -- Updated the VTK related links to use the
new VTK web site. Made slight improvements to the installation
page. A few bugs have been fixed and a few things enhanced in
the last month and there has been a good deal of interaction on
the mailing list.

web page sources. Also released MayaVi-1.0 and

Also added a few new features. During the course of the week
spent lots of time trying to find a good name.
- April 5 - 22, 2001 -- I completely rewrote/redesigned
vtk-cfd and threw away all the old code. There are many new features that I have added. Most
important of these are:
- The ability to run multiple modules simultaneously.
- The ability to use multiple data sources
- The ability to save and reload a complete
- Highly improved modules, a new segmented pipeline
- The ability to filter data using a data filter. A few
simple but useful filters have also been included.

Dr. P. A. Rubini for his suggestions).
