Hubble in a Bottle!

Hubble in a bottle! is a scientific visualization tool for TIPSY files with plenty of optimizations (3dnow for AMD and SSE for Intel processors) and the ability to run on large supercomputer clusters using the MPI library. The model can be rotated intuitively using quaternions and in real time with the quick mode. Three plot modes are available: Maximum density, Nearest particle and Line of Sight Approximation, if the density file is missing. There are ten color maps and an edge detection filter to evidenciate contours. Thanks to Thomas Kuehne, the project is now in production stage at the Institute for Theoretical Physics, University of Zuerich, on the zBox supercomputer by Joachim Stadel. The project is Open Source and under the GNU General Public License. Any further help in form of patches, bug reports, binaries on your architecture and new example models is very appreciated!
