The release notes state that vtkStdString is being removed. Should we just be using std::string everywhere now?

That’s correct.

Very impressive, the rendering is so much better.

Thank you very much for providing version 5.9.0 for downloading!

I am missing the ParaView Guide for version 5.9.0 in the documentation section on the download page.

@mg65 from this release, the ParaView Guide is hosted online using the Read the Docs framework at the URL

If you prefer to download a pdf instead, Read the Docs gives you the possibility to export the documentation to PDF.

@vbolea Thank you very much for the information.
