Jan Möbius committed
16
         - Picking functions use size_t instead of unsigned int now (Required to get rid of a lot of warnings during compilation)    
17
         - Enabled AUTOMOC in cmake for QT ( If you get redefinition errors, guard the corresponding headers with a  pragma once ; If you get gl.h before glew.h errors, move your widgets not using OpenGL into a subdir and add that to the DIRS macro in your CMakeLists.txt)
18
         - Enabled AUTOUIC in cmake for QT ( If you get trouble finding generated ui_*.hh headers, change your include to ui_*.h to get them generated correctly)
19
         - Removed a lot of Scenegraph includes in BaseObjectData to reduce gl qt collisions and replaced them with forward declarations. (You have to include the scenegraph headers yourself now!)
20 21
         - Removed a lot of unnecessary large QT includes from the Interfaces (Mostly QtWidgets). You have to add your own include statements in your plugins now.
         - Removed WhatsThisGenerator include  from BaseInterface. You have to include it in the plugins now if you use it.
22
         - Removed the classical ObjectTypes CMake search. Please use the new style ( Type-Typename/ObjectTypes/<Typename> + Type-Typename/Plugin-TypeTypeName ) scheme
23
         - Removed GlutExaminer and GlutViewer from ACG library
