[vtkusers] Wheels for Python3.7 ('pip3 install vtk' fails)

being able to install the VTK library for Python into a virtual environment is really handy. However, PyPI currently lacks wheels for the most recent version 3.7 of Python. Are there any plans for a release?

The information reported by ‘pip’ is already quite confusing:

$ python3 --version
Python 3.7.1

$ python3 -m pip search vtk
vtk (8.1.1)            - VTK is an open-source toolkit for 3D computer graphics, image processing, and visualization

$ python3 -m pip install vtk
Collecting vtk
  Could not find a version that satisfies the requirement vtk (from versions: )
No matching distribution found for vtk

I realized there are no distributions of ‘vtk’ for Python 3.7 when looking at the files overview in PyPI, https://pypi.org/project/vtk/#files <https://pypi.org/project/vtk/#files>.

I did not find any major issues concerning the compatibility of VTK with Python 3.7. Is there a reason no wheels have been distributed yet? Is there any way one can help?

Thank you in advance!
