VTK 9.0.0.rc2

The VTK maintenance team is happy to announce that VTK 9.0.0 RC2 is available for testing!

You can find the source, data and documentation tarballs here .

Take a look at the VTK wiki for a complete list of API changes in v9.0.0 over the previous version.

Please try this version of VTK, and report any issues to the bug tracker so that we can try to address them before VTK 9.0.0 final. Kindly set the 9.0 milestone on your issue and merge requests for 9.0 to ensure that they are tracked during the remainder of the release process. Further, please base / rebase all 9.0 target branches off of the v9.0.0.rc1 tag to ensure minimal merge conflicts with the release and master branches.

The official release notes will be available when VTK 9.0.0 final is finished in the next few weeks. In the meantime, here is a preview of the significant changes and new features:

We hope you enjoy this release of VTK!

As always, contact Kitware and this discourse site for assistance.

Thanks to all the rc1 testers out there. Lots of bugs found and squashed before the final release.
