Hi Sankhesh,

Nice to see rc2 out, it has a fix for a problem I reported (thanks!). I'll
update our software probably later today.

See below though.

> Take a look at the VTK wiki for a complete list of API changes in v8.0.0
over the previous version.
> Please try this version of VTK and report any issues to the VTK mailing
list or the bug tracker so that we can try to address them before the VTK
8.0.0 final. Kindly set the 8.0 milestone on the issues and merge requests
to ensure that they are tracked during the remainder of the 8.0 release

Just wanted to remind about


which I think should be a blocker for 8.0.0. I couldn't find a way to set
the milestone when I reported, but I guess I just don't have the necessary

Just wanted to promote this issue a little, as I was afraid it was falling
through the cracks.


Further, please base / rebase all 8.0 target branches off of the v8.0.0.rc2
tag (or earlier) to ensure minimal merge conflicts with the release branch.
