<li>Lineouts can now be directly calculated (i.e. without having to make a Pseudocolor plot to extract a Lineout from). You can access this feature by making a Curve plot of a scalar listed under operators/Lineout.</li>
<li>VisIt now has a "-safe" mode. This mode will tell you if your data has NaNs, infs, or bad connectivity. Access this mode by adding "-safe" to VisIt's invocation. (This mode is not the default because it incurs a performance penalty.)</li>
<li>The manner in which operators are copied from existing plots to new plots has changed. The new behavior copies operators from the first selected plot instead of always copying operators from the first plot.</li>

<li>build_visit was modified to use anonymous svn checkout as a backup for downloading third party libraries. It tries anonymous svn just before it tries https from the VisIt webs site.</li>
