Hi folks,

VTK 8.1.0.rc2 is up on the downloads site and tagged in git. Please give it
a try and report any problems that you find to us via the gitlab issue
tracker with an "8.1" milestone tag. Developers, use the same tag to let us
know of any fixes that you want integrated to the release branch in time
for 8.1.0 final in a few weeks time. If nothing major comes up, this will
be retagged as 8.1.0 final. We expect the next release, VTK 9.0.0, to be
out in a few short months.

The biggest reason for rc2 is that in it we have deprecated Tcl.
The entire set of changes over rc1 are as follows.
