Summary0002192: "GUI resource files in plugins are no longer supported" resurfaced in plugins when built with ParaView 5.0
DescriptionBack in report #2140, there was a warning shown in the report that seemed strange:

  CMake Warning at /home/ofuser/OpenFOAM/ThirdParty-4.x/platforms/linux64Gcc/ParaView-5.0.1/lib/cmake/paraview-5.0/ParaViewPlugins.cmake:988 (message):
    GUI resource files in plugins are no longer supported. The same
    functionality can be obtained using Hints in the Server Manager xml files.
    See the Major API Changes document for details.
  Call Stack (most recent call first):
    CMakeLists.txt:59 (ADD_PARAVIEW_PLUGIN)

Upon further inspection, this issue was introduced when a partial fix was applied in OpenFOAM 2.3.x, namely for dealing with build differences between ParaView 4.0.* and 4.1.0, when the "GUI_RESOURCE_FILES" option was deprecated in ParaView's CMake stack. The fix made at the time only checked for "PARAVIEW_VERSION_MINOR" being equal or not to 0.

This was not a problem while ParaView 4 was still the major version, but with the subsequent support for ParaView 5.0 and newer, this warning popped up once again.

Therefore, attached is the tarball "PV_Readers_update.tar.gz" which provides a simple fix for the following files (applicable to both OpenFOAM-4.x and OpenFOAM-dev repositories):


The fix is essentially this:


This was tested with success, when changed on purpose to 5.0 instead of 4.0.
TagsNo tags attached.

Thanks for the fix Bruno; this minor irritation was on my list but I hadn't got around to it.
