  <li>VisIt has a new point tool that can be used to select a new origin for the new ThreeSlice operator, which performs three orthogonal slices on 3D databases and leaves the resulting slices in 3D.

  <li>Panning and zooming is vastly improved so that it no longer moves the camera.</li>
  <li>The Boundary plot now has a button for filled vs. unfilled.</li>
  <li>Pipeline caching is now off by default.</li>
  <li>Databases created by automatic file grouping are displayed expanded by default.</li>
  <li>VisIt now has a -config flag that lets you load a specific configuration file.</li>
  <li>Plots are recalculated only if the plot or operators attributes change.</li>
  <li>Saving settings to the config file now only saves the differences from the default settings.</li>
  <li>The Query window scrolls its output instead of clearing each time a query is performed.</li>
  <li>The vis window now has FullFrame mode, which is available vis the popup menu. FullFrame mode expands 2D plots so that they take up most of the vis window.</li>
  <li>The files in the selected files list now indicate file permissions through the use of color. Files are gray if they cannot be accessed.</li>
</ul>
