Hi all,

I am pleased to announce version 1.2 of visvis, an object oriented approach
to visualization of 1D to 4D data.

Website: http://code.google.com/p/visvis/
Discussion group: http://groups.google.com/group/visvis/
Documentation: http://code.google.com/p/visvis/wiki/Visvis_basics

Since the last release, much work has been done on the interaction with the
backend GUI toolkits, making visvis work (better) on Linux. As a result of
these changes, the FLTK backend is now also stable. For more changes see the
release notes <http://code.google.com/p/visvis/wiki/releaseNotes>.

=== Description ===
Visvis is a pure Python library for visualization of 1D to 4D data in an
object oriented way. It can visualize plots (lines with markers), show
images, and render 3D volumes. These data can also be moved in time. Visvis
is cross-platform, lightweight, and is designed to be easily extendable.

Essentially, visvis is an object oriented layer of Python on top of OpenGl,
thereby combining the power of OpenGl with the usability of Python. A
Matlab-like interface in the form of a set of functions allows easy creation
of objects (e.g. plot(), imshow(), volshow()).

Visvis can be used in Python scripts, interactive Python shells (as with
IPython or IEP) and can be embedded in GUI applications.
