VTK 6.0.0.rc2 is Ready for Testing!

May 29, 2013

The VTK 6.0 release candidate stream continues! You can find the
source here:


Thank you everyone who tried release candidate 1. In rc1 the community found the minor bugs that are listed below. Additionally some had difficulties with the way that concrete classes are not automatically created for abstract classes anymore if the implementation module that the concrete classes are defined in is not linked to. Be on the lookout for this, especially whenever New() returns null, and read the build system migration guide (http://www.vtk.org/Wiki/VTK/Build_System_Migration) to understand what you need to do to make it work. We will work to clarify that page and add a new canonical example that demonstrates the creation of external modules.

Following is the complete list of changes in this rc since the last
release. Please try this version of VTK in your projects and report
any issues to the mailing list.
