VTK 6.0.0.rc1 is Ready for Testing!
Kitware and the VTK team are happy to announce that VTK 6.0 has entered the release candidate stage! You can find the source and data packages here: http://www.vtk.org/VTK/resources/software.html#cand
The big news in this release is that VTK has been refactored from a large monolithic resource consisting of 19 tightly bound “kits” into a still large but now composeable resource consisting of 160 loosely bound “modules”. Now applications can be built using just the source code for the small portions of the VTK library that they actually use instead of the whole million plus line enchilada. Conversely, it is easier than ever now to add new capabilities to VTK by writing small self-contained external modules.
