DescriptionVapor v3.1 is an open-source visualization and analysis tool for physical sciences. This release is a key milestone in Vapor's development, and this video will demonstrate the improvements that have been made since Vapor 2.6 was released two years ago.

With this most recent release, Vapor has undergone a refactorization of its code base that spans a 15 year history. Many shortcomings have been addressed, and these improvements aim to help scientists produce science that is superior to what has been previously possible with 3D visualization.

Some of these areas include improvements to Vapor’s data model, user interface, color application, and its general feature set.

Side-by-side comparisons of Vapor 2.6 will be done with Vapor 3.1 so old users can come up to speed with what’s new. New users will get a high level view of how to get their data into Vapor 3.1, start rendering, and how to get help. Vapor’s future roadmap will finally be discussed, along with a discussion on how users can request features, submit bugs, and even contribute their own code.
