ParaView 5.11.1 Release Notes

April 4, 2023

Bug fixes made since ParaView 5.11.0 are listed in this document. The full list of issues addressed by this release is available here.


Support for 12-node wedges in IOSS

The IOSS reader now supports mixed-order, 12-node wedge elements. These elements have quadratic triangle faces but quadrilaterals with 2 linear sides and are sometimes used to represent material failure along a shared boundary between two tetrahedra (i.e., the wedge is assigned a zero or negligible stiffness, allowing the neighboring tetrahedra to move relative to one another without inducing strain.

  • Bump VTK to support vtkQuadraticLinearWedge in IOSS. (details).

Point Interpolator Null Points Strategy Typo Fix

The PointInterpolatorBase source proxy had a typo that prevented users from selecting “Closest Point” as the Null Points strategy for the Point Line Interpolator, Point Plane Interpolator, Point Volume Interpolator, and Point Dataset Interpolator Filters. Note that this only affects those interpolation kernels that can produce such null points, such as the Linear Kernel while using a radius based interpolation.
