The auld Vector Layer input in QGIS 2.14. etc. modeler:
The new Vector Layer input in QGIS 2.99.0:
The new Feature Source input in QGIS 2.99.0:
Question: What is the difference between the new Vector Layer and Feature Source, provided Feature Source is not restricted to a certain shape type? And if Vector Layer inputs do not appear in algorithm input selections, what is it for?
