Release candidate 2 is ready to try.
Compared to rc1, this release candidate contains a handful of new deprecations, updates to some of VTK's third party libraries and miscellaneous improvements. You can find the source, data, and vtkpython binary packages here:
Please try this version of VTK, and report any issues to the mailing lists so that we can try to address them before the final VTK 7.0.0 release in a few weeks time.
Thanks go out to everyone who tried rc1!
