We will disable the “auto-update” attempt done at startup time. See issue 4641.
As discussed in issue note 4550#c1612, following commit r26960 installation of extension is never happening. Query of extension metadata is the only thing happening at startup time and it is a potential cause of crash. This is now tracked by issue 4641
When planning Slicer 5.0, we will discuss with we want to effectively remove this feature, or implement a different approach (using background thread). See issue 4642
Discussed issue 4634 impacting the LandmarkRegistration extension. If multiple fiducial overlap with all but one hidden, it is not always possible to select the visible fiducial
Which image should we feature in the release blog and associated announcement ? We were thinking about creating a gid based on part of the Pedicle screw insertion in virtual reality. @cpinter What do you think ? Is it something you could help with ? The idea would be to get something like what was done here
Please modify at will:
“Demonstration of recent VR interaction developments in 3D Slicer via pedicle screw placement planning workflow: easy world manipulation using “pinch 3D”, placement of objects in the 3D screen with controllers, object clipping by head movement”
I know the last one is not a recent improvement, and not even an actual feature, but based on our correspondence with Tim Thirion and Ken Martin, cropping is not something that was intended to use productively, but it is actually useful, and heavily relied on for correct screw placement.

Thanks Csaba. Are the following acknowledgment correct ?
Demonstration of recent Virtual Reality (VR) interaction developments in 3D Slicer via pedicle screw placement planning workflow: (1) easy world manipulation using “pinch 3D”, (2) placement of objects in the 3D screen with controllers, (3) object clipping by head movement.
