Abstract: Panorapix is a new X11 client for visualizing FITS images on UNIX platforms, developed in the context of the TERAPIX project. The code is in C++ and uses the Qt library which provides an ergonomic look-and-feel to the interface. Huge images (32k X 32k pixels and even bigger) can be comfortably visualized even on a modest machine. Up to twelve files can be dealt with simultaneously and all kinds of X display are supported (8, 16, 24 and 32 bits-per-pixel). In the very first version, the most important tools have been implemented (zooming, panning, coordinates, intensity, ...), but new functionalities will easily be added.
