I did some minor cleanup to the release notes for 2.10.1 in order to

have consistency in reference to database plugins.

<ul>
<li>VisIt now permits the <i>-socket-bridge-host</i> command line argument to override the host name passed to compute engines when VCL starts a socket bridge. This is useful for login nodes that are attached to multiple network interfaces such as on BlueGene/Q where compute nodes may need to attach to the socket bridge host (typically the LAC node) using an alias.</li>
<li>The PF3D reader was enhanced so that it reads the new multi level file format.</li>
<li>The PF3D database plugin was enhanced so that it reads the new multi level file format.</li>
<li>The SPH Resample Operator now supports zone-centered data.</li>
<li>VTK's higher order elements are now exposed via Libsim.</li>
<li>The Silo plugin now supports all-empty multi-block objects.</li>
<li>The Silo database plugin now supports all-empty multi-block objects.</li>
<li>The interpretation of "_meshtv_searchpath" and "_visit_searchpath" was changed in the Silo reader. If the search path is blank it will now be ignored instead of causing the reader to ignore all variables located in subdirectories. The reader will now ignore all variables located in subdirectories when the search path contains a path that doesn't exist in the Silo file. This change in behavior was necessitated when we discovered that codes had been unintentionally outputting Silo files with blank search paths for years. Because the Silo reader wasn't handling a blank search path properly, this never caused a problem. When the behavior was fixed in VisIt 2.10, VisIt no longer displayed the variables in the subdirectories in its menus when it encountered such a file. Since we couldn't fix all the existing files, we decided to change the interpretation of the search path in VisIt.</li>
<li>The pre-built Ubuntu distributions now contain support for reading ITAPS files.</li>
<li>The PDB Z File reader was enhanced to support marker meshes and variables.</li>
