A high performance parallel ray tracing system supporting MPI and
multithreaded implementations.
Tachyon implements all of the basic geometric primitives such as
triangles, planes, spheres, cylinders, etc. Some of the goals in
developing Tachyon were to make it fast and for it to parallelize
well. These are what set it apart from more full-featured programs
like POV-Ray, Rayshade, and others. Tachyon supports enough features
to be an excellent alternative to slower programs for demanding
animation and scientific visualization tasks.

- Remove old SLES BuildRequires.
2014-02-05 -
- Update to new upstream release 0.99~b6
* a new barrier synchronization mechanism was implemented for
synchronizing the pool of worker threads on each node prior to
sending/receiving the image buffer via MPI.
* Added support for atomic integer ops for improved performance
when mixing threads and distributed memory message passing.

- added *.h in the devel packages... I hope I added all
I have managed to build vmd from cvs with them
