The VTK maintenance team is happy to announce a new patch release for VTK 8.0.
You can find the source, data and documentation tarballs here:
Please try this version of VTK and report any issues to the list or the bug tracker.
A big thanks to everyone who contributed changes towards this release. Some of the notable changes in this patch include:
- Fix QVTKOpenGLWidget rendering issues on Windows machines with certain Intel graphics chips. This was a significant issue that broke all rendering and resulted in a black screen. Detailed reports of the issues can be found on the bug tracker:
- Fix data array range caching per finite component which would otherwise cause considerable slow-downs when using data arrays.
- Fix button and slider widgets to work in multi-viewport render windows. Without this change the widgets would either be placed in the wrong viewport or be non-interactive completely.
- Fix image XY sampling in the volume mapper when depth peeling is enabled.
- Fix z-fighting issues with dual depth peeling between two layers of geometry that are too close.
- Fix crash when reparenting the QVTKWidget to a different window. The application would crash due to lack of OpenGL resources for the reparented widget.
We hope you enjoy this release of VTK!
