We are removing sensors and dynamic vectors in Cesium 1.0, specifically, these classes:
- CustomSensorVolume, DynamicCone, DynamicConeVisualizerUsingCustomSensor
- RectangularPyramidSensorVolume, DynamicPyramid, DynamicPyramidVisualizer
- DynamicVector, DynamicVectorVisualizer
These features are niche, incomplete, and have a fair amount of issues written agaisnt them. AGI, who supports a significant amount of Cesium development, is developing a licensed visualization engine derived from Cesium that includes rewritten next-generation versions of these features. AGI, of course, continues to heavily support core Cesium development.
If there is enough interest, we’ll move these classes to a plugin, which can be supported by community contributions. Users can also keep these classes on a custom Cesium branch.
We are not making a habit of removing features. This is a one-time realignment as we head towards 1.0.
