Tecplot Inc. Announces Tecplot 10 Release 3; New Release of Company's Flagship Product Includes 64-Bit Support, New Development Tools, and New Data Loaders.

BELLEVUE, Wash. -- Tecplot, Inc., a developer of data visualization and technical plotting software, today announced the immediate availability of Tecplot 10 Release 3.

Tecplot is the company's flagship data visualization product. It is technical plotting software with extensive XY, 2- and 3-D capabilities for engineers, scientists and researchers visualizing data from analyses, simulations and experiments.

Released last fall, Tecplot 10 includes new capabilities in three key areas: plotting tools, data management, and the user interface. These enhancements help give Tecplot 10 users complete control to explore, analyze and communicate their results. This flexibility is the key differentiator between Tecplot 10 and competing data visualization products, which restrict or limit the options users have to create the exact plot that they want.

The most significant new feature of Tecplot 10 Release 3 is 64-bit support. Tecplot now takes advantage of the 64-bit operating systems from Hewlett-Packard, Silicon Graphics, Sun Microsystems, and Linux. The main performance-related benefit of 64-bit computing is the ability to access more physical memory. Users running Tecplot on 64-bit systems will be able to load files that previously exceeded the 4 gigabyte limit of 32-bit processors.

Other new features of Tecplot 10 Release 3 include enhancements to the Add-on Developer's Kit (ADK) and the Tecplot GUI Builder (TGB); and new data loaders for loading Hierarchical Data Format 5 (HDF5) and CFD General Notation System (CGNS) data files. The ADK is a set of documentation, tools and utilities that assist developers in the creation of Tecplot Add-ons. The TGB is a tool for generating platform-independent graphical user interface (GUI) code. Users now have the ability to modify the entire menu system and replace the Tecplot sidebar. Also new is support for bitmapped buttons in the TGB and enhanced development tools. Together, these new options give application developers full control to implement the functionality and user interface they desire.

"The goal of this release, as with all of our releases, is to continue to provide our users with value-added improvements," said Mike Peery, president and chief executive officer of Tecplot, Inc. "In the case of the new 64-bit support, we felt it was imperative that Tecplot take advantage of the 64-bit operating systems because our customers continue to push the envelope on the amount of data they are analyzing." As for the other new features, each was made to increase the productivity of Tecplot users, Peery added.

Available for Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, and most UNIX workstations, Tecplot 10 Release 3 prices start at $1,600 in the U.S.A.
