Fedora Update Notification

Name        : vtk
Product     : Fedora 11
Version     : 5.4.2
Release     : 33.fc11
URL         : http://vtk.org/
Summary     : The Visualization Toolkit - A high level 3D visualization library
Description :
VTK is an open-source software system for image processing, 3D
graphics, volume rendering and visualization. VTK includes many
advanced algorithms (e.g., surface reconstruction, implicit modelling,
decimation) and rendering techniques (e.g., hardware-accelerated
volume rendering, LOD control).

Update Information:

This is a major update of VTK. There are also several build bugfixes
incorporated.    *major changes from 5.2 to 5.4:*  - Geovis kit  - Two new
views: TreeRing & Icicle  - Upgraded version of freetype utility.     *further
notable changes from 5.4.0 to 5.4.2:*      * GUISupport/Qt/QVTKWidget.cxx:
Instead of deleting timers immediately, mark them for deletion next time the
event loop is entered.      * Hybrid/vtkAxesActor.cxx: When a user transform is
applied to vtkAxesActor, make sure the axis labels are translated with the axes
* Infovis/vtkCommunity2DLayoutStrategy.cxx: Fix a memory leak      *
IO/vtkFLUENTReader.cxx: Bug fixes courtesy of Terry Jordan.    Other fixes
included in this release are as follows:        * Also fix uninitialized
this->NumberOfCells. As this is used in PrintSelf. Detected by valgrind on
otherPrint.      * Rendering/vtkCameraActor.cxx & Rendering/vtkLightActor.cxx:
Changed vtkErrorMacro into vtkDebugMacro to avoid printing errors in the context
of object instantiation. It happened because PrintSelf on the actor calls
PrintSelf on superclass, which call GetBounds, which call UpdateViewProps() on
the concrete classes vtkLightActor and vtkCameraActor.      *
Rendering/vtkCarbonRenderWindowInteractor.cxx: Fix location for mouse events,
bug #8261.      * Utilities/CMakeLists.txt: Use VTK_LIBRARY_PROPERTIES value for
consistent with other vtk utility libraries on Linux builds.      *
Views/vtkGraphLayoutView.cxx: Check for a null pointer      *
Widgets/vtkLineRepresentation.h & Widgets/vtkLineRepresentation.cxx: Computation
of parameteric coordinate, t and the closest_point, was done in display
coordinates. The value t cannot directly be mapped to word coordinates, since it
needs to be scaled according to the projection matrix. (The farther you go from
the camera position, the larger the increments in t). To avoid this, keep
everything in word coordinates by using a picker.
