Subject: [vtk-developers] Marching Cubes has moved


Some of you may have noticed that vtkMarchingCubes and its relatives have
moved from the Patented directory into Graphics. Along wih the move, the
licensing info has been removed from the comments.

Reason: The patent on Marching Cubes expired last Sunday, June 5, 2005.

It's hard to believe that it is almost 21 years (7/11/84) since Harvey Cline
and I came up with the algorithm. Except for an adjustment to the case
table, the algorithm is virtually unchanged.
