 Subject: [vtkusers] Announce: vtk 6.3.0 release candidate 1 is ready
The VTK developement team is happy to announce that VTK 6.3 has entered
the release candidate stage!

You can find the source, data, and new vtkpython binary packages here:


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 6.3.0 final.

The official release notes will be available when VTK final is released
in the next few weeks. In the meantime here is a preview:

  - new OpenMP backend for vtkSMPTools;
  - new MPI-IO backend for PLOT3D reader;
  - new vtkPlotArea for rendering area (or range) plots;
  - multithreaded Gaussian splatter class;
  - multithreading support in the vtkSampleFunction;
  - compiler uplifts: gcc-4.1 and Visual Studio 2008 or newer are
  - the Piston and Dax accelerator modules are deprecated;
  - writing side and node sets in Exodus files;
  - skip NaN values in vtkDataArray::GetRange();
  - reading compressed TIFF files with sub-extents;
  - support for OpenGL 3.2 in the (still experimental, but much less so)
    OpenGL2 backend;
  - text rendering now respects the DPI of the vtkWindow;
  - vtkAxis respects the TileScale setting of vtkWindow;

And many bug fixes across the codebase.

We hope you enjoy this release of VTK! As always, contact Kitware and
the mailing lists for assistance.
