I am happy to announce that CMB 6.0.0 Release Candidate 1 has now been tagged. The source is available here and binaries will me made available within the next couple of days. Please let us know if you run into any problems with this release candidate. The CMB issue tracker is located here. The release notes for CMB 6.0.0 are as follows:
CMB 6.0 Release Notes
CMB 6.0 is a complete rewrite of CMB 5. It currently supports a
subset of the functionality (model viewing and attribution) available
in CMB 5.
Whereas CMB 5 was a set of applications derived from ParaView, CMB 6.0
is effectively the ParaView application itself with augmentations and
functionality changes introduced using ParaView’s plugin framework.
CMB 6.0 presents a Resource Panel to display currently loaded models,
meshes and attribute resources. This resource panel is distinct from
ParaView’s pipeline panel, whose focus is on visualization pipelines.
Attribute resources loaded into memory do not have a visual
representation in the 3-D render window; instead, they are displayed
in the Attribute Panel. This panel allows the user to create, delete
and modify attributes within the active attribute resource.
Operations that act on resources and their components are presented in
the Operation Panel, a preliminary display that adaptively presents
available operations to the user depending on operation’s abilities to
act on currently selected objects. An operation is selected by
double-clicking the operation’s name. Selecting an operation results
in the operation’s interactive input parameters displaying in the
bottom part of the Operation Panel.
Because CMB 6.0 is rooted in ParaView, all of ParaView’s
post-processing functionality is natively available to the user. To
present a clean interface, much of ParaView’s interface is hidden from
the user by default. ParaView’s interface can be made available to the
user by loading the post-processing plugin and toggling the ParaView
button on the toolbar.
