Thank you to everyone who provided feedback on and fixes for
release candidate one!

Kitware and the rest of the VTK team are happy to announce that VTK 6.1.0
release candidate two is ready for you to try. Please try this version of
VTK and report any issues to the list or the bug tracker so that we can try
to address them before VTK 6.1.0 final. You can find the source, data, and
new vtkpython binary packages here:

One notable change is that we've revised the regression test data and
source file tarballs to make it easier to build VTK without internet
connectivity. When you unpack and build the source tarball, BUILD_TESTING
is now initially disabled. Thus no attempt will be made at build time to
download the regression test data. If you unpack the data tarball as well,
all required data files will be put in place so that with BUILD_TESTING
turned on, internet access is still unnecessary. Similarly the large data
tar ball allows you to turn on the tests that depend on VTK_USE_LARGEDATA
without internet access.

Another packaging related fix was that we've corrected a bug in the window
python binary such that VTK's python modules are placed underneath the bin
directory where more environments will find them automatically.

This release candidate also fixes parallel particle tracing filters and has
fixes for various compilers.

The full list of changes since release candidate one follow. Refer to the
full git log for more details.
