Released VTK-m user's guide, version 1.1

Researchers at Sandia National Laboratories, in collaboration with Kitware Inc., Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Los Alamos National Laboratory, and the university of Oregon, are proud to release VTK-m version 1.1. The VTK-m library provides highly parallel code to execute visualization on many-core processors like GPUs, multi-core CPUs, and other hardware we are likely to see at for Exascale HPC. This release of VTK-m includes critical core features including filter structures and key reduction. Also provided by this release are several new filters including external faces, gradients, clipping, and point merging. Also provided with this release is a comprehensive VTK-m User’s Guide providing detailed instruction and reference for using and editing VTK-m.
