The "Pitcher's Duel" project has released SPyRE v0.5 (Simple Pythonic
Rendering Engine), a conversion of the lightweight rendering engine
'zoe', to use Pygame/SDL rather than GLUT. This release also includes
html help files.  SPyRE was formerly known as zoePG.

Provide pyOpenGL code to draw the model, and the SPyRE engine will
display the model in an interface that provides zooming, panning and
rotation of camera position using mouse and keyboard.

The project includes demos such as a fountain of sparks, a swarming
behavior model, a random walk example, a whirlpool effect using
gravity and drag, and an example of chaos theory, and a lighted shaded
forest scene.

To use SPyRE, you also need to have installed Python, pyOpenGL, and
