OS X Packaging strategy to support installation and removal of multiple ParaView Options
Create a way that would allow an MDM solution like the JAMF Casper Suite to install update and manage multiple version of ParaView provide backward compatibility of ParaView.
One of the solutions for ParaView would be to provide backward compatibility in newer version to older version. This is how most of the software vendors we deal with handle the multiple versions installed at the same time issue. Others create entirely new software like Microsoft Office for Mac 2011 and Office for Mac 2016 that are installed via pkgs and operate in parallel.

ParaView .app bundles across different versions are indeed independent of one another and can be used at the same time. Just rename the app bundle or place them under different directories. Isn't that sufficient?
