Geomview 1.9.5 released

Well, after years one more release. This release has two "parts":

  • as of 2007/2008 I have added major changes to the builtin Lisp-interpreter, adding true defuns and lambda-expression and some other in-principle-need-to-be-there-lisp-stuff

  • as of today, this is a naive maintenance release, making sure that the stuff still compiles (Gentoo Linux, OSX, I do not care about winzig-weich)

Both together manifest the current state of the software; also, occasionally at least I still need Geomview for myself, and partly for university courses. So at least for me it was a long over-due task to give the current state of Geomview a name. The name is "1.9.5".

Geomview 1.9.4 released

Geomview is an interactive 3D viewing program for Unix. Geomview lets you view and manipulate three-dimensional objects, and can also be used as a display engine by other programs to animate objects. Geomview supports OpenGL and uses a Motif X interface.

Just a bug-fix release, have a look at the release notes in the down-load area.

Geomview 1.9.3 released

Emergency bugfix; drawing of spheres was broken; their center was translated twice so they would drawn at the wrong position.

Geomview 1.9.2 released

1.9.2 is a bug-fix release for the 1.9 series of Geomview. There is one new feature: picking should now work correctly also in the context of ND-viewing. The file ChangeLog in the geomview-1.9.2 tar-ball contains notes about bug-fixes.

I have also update all emodules to make sure they compile with this version of Geomview. This was necessary at least for the modules using the pick-interface of Geomview because that has been changed slightly to fully support picking also in the context of ND-viewing.

Geomview 1.9.0 released

Geomview is an interactive program written by the staff of the Geometry Center for viewing and manipulating 3D (and higher dimensional) geometric objects. It can be used as a standalone viewer for static object or as a display engine for other programs which produce dynamically changing geometry.

Geomview 1.9.0 is the first major new release in seven years, featuring a range of new features, bugfixes for stability and support for newer compilers. Geomview now also runs on Mac OS X.

Geomview 1.8.2rc9 pre-release package

http://www.geomview.org/

Geomview is an interactive program for viewing and manipulating 3D (and higher dimensional) geometric objects. It can be used as a standalone viewer for static object or as a display engine for other programs which produce dynamically changing geometry.

Geomview is being brought up-to-date. Geomview now works with recent compilers, including gcc 4.x, is more portable with better autoconf configuration, and is more robust. This Geomview 1.8.2rc9 is a release candidate for a forthcoming 1.8.2 release. Geomview now runs on Mac OS X. The last major remaining problem is that Geomview only crashes on Mac OS X (Intel and PowerPC) when run from an external module such as SaVi (http://savi.sf.net). We'd appreciate advice from Mac OS X users.

Geomview 1.8.2 pre-release package.

http://www.geomview.org/

Geomview is a 3D rendering package used by mathematicians.

Geomview 1.8.2 is nearing release, and a pre-release package is now available for download and testing.

Geomview 1.8.2 should be more reliable than 1.8.1. 1.8.2 builds with new compilers, including gcc 4.0, and includes a number of familiar modules left out of 1.8.1.

1.8.2 addresses piping and filehandling errors experienced with earlier releases. 1.8.2 also works with Cygwin under Microsoft Windows, and builds on Mac OS X using the Fink libraries.... read more
