I want to announce the new release of the page with information
on finite element mesh generation. It can be found at:
I have added a software section to the page (public domain / commercial)
and a directory of people working on mesh generation.
In addition I have introduced a secondary index to make the
page more readable.
All comments and pointers on other online information are welcome.

Subject: Mesh Generation Software
I would like to announce the release of QMG1.1. QMG is free software
available on the Web for fully automatic unstructured finite element
mesh generation in two and three dimensions. It can generate meshes
for complex polyhedral domains with nonmanifold features. It includes
geometric modeling routines for polyhedral domains, two mesh
generators and a finite element solver. QMG is written in primarily
in C++ and is a collection of m-files and mex-files that run under
The new features of QMG1.1 (compared to QMG1.0) are:
(1) In addition to running under Matlab, QMG1.1 can also run under
Tcl/Tk. Tcl is a scripting language, and Tk is a GUI-building
toolkit. Both were developed at UC-Berkeley/Sun Microsystems and are
available on the Web.
(2) QMG1.1 runs under Microsoft Windows NT as well as Unix. Windows
NT (i386) users can download the QMG executables directly from the Web.
(3) QMG1.1 uses VRML and a web browser for 3D graphics.
(4) QMG1.1 includes a Delaunay-based boundary mesh generator as well
as an octree-based volumetric mesh generator.
(5) The 3D volumetric mesh generator in QMG1.1 runs much faster
and produces higher quality meshes than QMG1.0.
(6) QMG1.1 supports additional simplified file formats for I/O of
