Abstract : This report describes enhancement and changes made to the BRL-CAD MGED solid model editor. While called XMGED, it has been implemented primarily as a new display manager in MGED, and as such all of the old interfaces still operate. Besides offering a more modern user interface, there are also numerous new features including command history and editing, journaling and script files, multiple views, alternate mouse modes, position (in addition to rate) based knobs/sliders, user definable menus, etc. The description contained here is for a beta release of the code. The Motif widget set was used, so at present a machine with Motif is needed to compile this software (included with all Sgis). The software is also known to work on Suns and SunOS 4.x with Motif. We encourage user feedback both for bug reports and criticism of current features or suggestions of desired features.
