The tomviz project is developed as part of a collaboration between Kitware and Cornell University under DOE Office of Science contract DE-SC0011385. This is a community project, and we are very pleased to take input and contributions from all in the community. We would like to thank Peter Ercius, NCEM, for his feedback, and detailed issue reports as this release was prepared, along with everyone at Cornell who provided feedback at a meeting hosted by Cornell a few weeks ago.
