<li><b>The list kernel has been removed</b>

<li>Improved IO support:

  <li>Read/write ascii and binary STL </li>
  <li>Read/write ascii and binary OFF </li>
  <li>Support for vertex normals and vertex texcoords in OFF and OBJ</li>

  </li>
  <li>Properietary binary format OM, supporting read/write of custom properties
  </li>
  </ul>
</li>

<li>Improved coordinate class OpenMesh::VectorT:
  <ul>
    <li> <tt>VectorT::vectorize(Scalar)</tt> is no longer static, now 
          it changes the vector. Use it e.g. to clear vector values. 
    </li>
    <li> Casts between two vector classes of the same dimension are now
         explicit. This avoids unwanted and expensive casts. 
    </li>
    <li> Optimized performance by manual loop-unrolling. These optimizations
	 are partial specializations for vectors of dimension 2, 3 and 4. 
         Since Microsoft's VC++ still does not support partial specialization
         and also provides rather poor loop-unrolling, users of this compiler
         are stuck to lower performance.

        \c osg::Geometry and vice versa.<br>Please note that both objects
        share the same data!
      <ul>

    release.
</li>

<li>Added: Generic algorithms may now define their own traits, these traits can
    be merged with other user-defined traits by the OM_Merge_Traits macro. 
    See tutorial \ref tutorial_06.
</li>

<li>Added generic handle <-> item conversions, see 
    <ul>
    <li> OpenMesh::Concepts::KernelT::handle() and
    <li> OpenMesh::PolyMeshT::deref().
    </ul>
    The kernel methods vertex_handle(), halfedge_handle(), edge_handle(), 
    face_handle() should no longer be used, but are still existent for 
    compatibility reasons. You can hide them by uncommenting the define
    OM_HIDE_DEPRECATED in OpenMesh/System/config.h.
</li>

<li>Internal methods, like Vertex::halfedge_handle() or Vertex::point() are 
    now hidden, since the respective kernel methods (like 
    MeshKernel::halfedge_handle(VertexHandle) or 
    MeshKernel::point(VertexHandle)) should be used instead.
</li>

<li>Added convenience methods for the mesh kernels: 
    <ul>
    <li>OpenMesh::Concepts::KernelT::n_halfedges()
    <li>OpenMesh::Concepts::KernelT::halfedges_empty()
    <li>OpenMesh::Concepts::KernelT::halfedge_handle(unsigned int _i)
    </ul>
</li>

<li><b>Known Bugs</b>: 
    <ul>
    <li>001: Ambigous auto_ptr<> cast in ExporterT.hh.</li>
    <li>002: BaseImporter and BaseExporter have no virtual destructor.</li>
    <li>003: Reader does not work correctly, when reading from a istream.</li>
    <li>004: cross(VectorT, VectorT) returns Scalar instead of VectorT.</li>
    <li>005: PolyMeshT::calc_face_normal() may give wrong results if the
             first 3 points of the polygon are colinear or concave.</li>
    <li>006: Reading/writing (MeshIO) of files does not work when using acgmake
             with SuSE 8.1.</li>
    </ul>
</li>

<tr valign=top><td><b>0.10.2</b> (2002/06/25)</td><td> 
<ul>
<li>Bugs fixed: 0.10.1:{001, 002} 
</li>

<li>The edge collapse checking method TriMeshT::is_collapse_ok() is now more
    restrictive. It prohibits cases that could be handled by the
    halfedge data structure, but would probably not be regarded as a
    legal mesh.
</li>

<li>The vertex split operation creates up to 3 new edges and 2 new
    faces. Up to now it was possible to pass handles to edges/faces
    that should be used instead of creating new ones. This option has
    been removed in order to get a cleaner interface.
</li>

<li>The MeshCheckerT has been changed slightly: it omits deleted elements, so
    one does not have to perform a garbage collection before checking the mesh.
    It also checks for the halfedges building cycles around faces or
    boundaries.
</li>

<li><b>Known Bugs</b>: 
    <ul>
    <li>001: OpenMesh::PolyMeshT::operator=() does not return \c *this.
    <li>002: OpenMesh::DefaultAttributer added unnecessary 20 bits to the 
             elementary mesh types.

<li>Added: Predefined attribute \c TexCoord. 
</li>

<li>Added: Support for MS VC++ 6.0 IDE with Intel Compiler. 
</li>

<li>Added: Tutorial 6 on generic algorithms. 
</li>

<li>SharedCoordArrayKernelT is now derived from ArrayKernelT.
</li>

<li>Added: Assignment operator operator=() for PolyMeshT and TriMeshT.
</li>

<li>Added: Method TriMeshT::is_collapse_ok(), checking topological conditions
    for a given halfedge collapse.
</li>

<li><b>Known Bugs</b>: 
    <ul>
    <li>001: PolyMeshT::delete_face(): Outgoing halfedge handle of
             a vertex can incorrectly be invalidated. Influences
             vertex circulators, find_halfedge() and therefore
             add_face().<br>
             Workaround: Replace <tt>v0</tt> by <tt>v1</tt> in line 585 of
	     PolyMeshT.cc
    </li>
    <li>002: TriMeshT::collapse(): Some special cases are incorrectly
             handled when collapsing boundary halfedges. The same
             cases are also incorrect for the inverse operation
             TriMeshT::vertex_split() operation.

<!-- --------------------------------------------------------------------- -->

<tr valign=top><td><b>0.10.0</b> (2002/03/19)</td><td> 
<ul>
<li>Interface for specifying the traits classes simplified (see
    Traits.hh).  
</li>

<li>Changed attribute handling; the attributer class (the class that
    adds and registers attributes to mesh items) can be provided by
    the user.
</li>

<li>Removed MyMesh::Face::n_vertices() and
    MyMesh::Face::set_n_vertices().
</li>

<li>MeshWriter::write_* changed accordingly.
</li>

<li>Bug fix: PolyMeshT::delete_[face,edge,vertex] now work correctly.
</li>

<li>Removed cyclic dependency between items and kernel, because MS
    VC++ cannot handle the resulting template forward declaration
    :-(. Therefore the <tt>Base::Refs</tt> class, given for the traits
    classes, no longer provides the types \c Vertex, \c Halfedge, \c
    Edge, and \c Face. It now only provides all handle types, the
    point and the scalar type.
</li>

<li>Finally: MS VC++ 7.0 supported.
</li>

<li><b>Known Bugs</b>:
    <ul> 
    <li>001: TriMeshT.cc::vertex_split(): call to undefined
        method Face::set_n_vertices().<br>
        Workaround: Comment out the two occurences of the call.
    </li>
    <li>002: Missing <tt>\#include
        <OpenMesh/Mesh/Kernels/ListKernel/ListHandles.hh></tt>
	in OpenMesh/Mesh/Types/PolyMesh_ListKernelT.hh.
    </li>
    <li>003: Special case in TriMeshT::edge_collapse(): when collapsing a 
        boundary vertex into an interior one, the outgoing halfedge of
        the resulting vertex my not be a boundary one.
    </li>
    <li>004: PolyMeshT::delete_edge did not pass its argument 
        _delete_isolated_vertices to PolyMeshT::delete_face.
    </li>
    <li>005: PolyMeshT::assign() was not linked because of an \#if error.
