Hello VTK users,

The official Tcl/Tk 8.5.0 release was announced a few months ago. 
While we had added support for the alpha and beta 8.5 version in VTK 
in the past, I only recently upgraded both VTK CVS, VTK's VTK-5-0 
branch, and CMake 2.6/CVS's Tcl/Tk modules to fully support the 8.5.0 
stable release. I also cleaned a few extra variables that had been 
confusing for a long time.

A lot of build tests were performed in the past few weeks on Win32, 
Linux and MacOSX, with different shared, static, release and debug 
options. I'll start rolling some dashboards to make sure we catch 
potential issues. Let me/us know if you encounter any problem.

Thank you

Note: Tcl/Tk 8.5 is a major new release that includes a fair amount 
of improvements and bug fixes:

Note: ActiveState's precompiled Windows binaries do not include 
static or debug libraries.  Tcl/Tk is notoriously hard to build on 
Windows; feel fee to use our own Tcl/Tk 8.50 and IncrlTcl/Tk 3.4 Win32 build:
