This is great news!

At this very moment me and my colleague are giving a blender course for 
scientific visualization (in Amsterdam) and have had to disappoint a 
number of researchers that work with volumetric data. There is 
definitely demand/interest in general volume data support for Blender as 
well, not just Cycles, judging by publications like 
https://arxiv.org/pdf/1611.06965.pdf (a 14-page description on how to 
use the Blender Voxel format when using BI rendering). So any steps 
forward in getting more general volume data and rendering support in 
Blender and Cycles would be awesome!

Btw, if the GSOC student would like to test with scientific volumetric 
data at some point then we can easily provide test sets.
