Even though I don't want to support both the old and new VR interface, I think it may be worthwhile to have them side-by-side for some amount of time. Currently I've replaced the old stuff in-place, but perhaps it is worth the time to provide a visualization/legacy_volume_rendering and accompanying cython code in utilities/lib to allow migration?

If we were to do that, I'd be fine pulling in the new volume rendering at any time.

We’re due for a 3.0.3 soon, so it sounds like that’s what we should do. 

I’d like to see my 3 PRs pulled in as well as Doug’s compose PR. Are there any others folks want to advocate for?

Once the new VR is pulled in, we should have a month or so of shaking out before a public release.  This way we can all try our favorite scripts and give feedback, etc.  We want VR to continue to work in the new release (API changes are fine).  I'm happy to do what I can to test things out when the time is right.

Well, then we shouldn't call it 3.1, I think.

I'm good with this.  I'm personally anxious about pushing the VR out right now, because there may be some API mods as the VR goes towards including movie stuff.  My concern is that if we push the new VR module into the public, people will use it and modifying the API will be very hard at that point because it will then break people's code.  The movie VR stuff is something I was going to begin working on once the static frame VR stuff was more set, which is what we're working on now.  I figured timeframe for both to be done was end of January, but Sam may have different ideas.

Sam, what do you think the chances of getting the VR PR landed are?

Hi all,

There have been a number of cool new features in the pull request queue recently. Some of these have added new features and I think it might be worthwhile to indicate that by bumping the minor version number on the next release.

I think it would be a good idea to try to integrate the open PRs as well as any that come in over the next couple of weeks that can be reviewed, call it yt 3.1 and release on or around Dec. 1. This will mean generating a proofread docs build and perhaps a few days of low-hanging issue triaging.

I'd nominate John ZuHone to send out the release email to recognize the hard work he's been putting in recently.

Just an idea, but I've tried to include specifics as a basis for further discussion.  What do you all think?

Nathan
