<b>Breaking changes</b>
<ul>
<li>The minimal standard for C++ has been raised to C++11. Compilers not supporting C++11 or higher are no longer supported</li>
39
<li>Removed the python bindings from this project. They have migrated to a <a href="https://www.graphics.rwth-aachen.de:9000/OpenMesh/openmesh-python">seperate project</a>.</li>

446 447 448 449
<li>Added CW and CCW Circulators ( These new iterator versions also fix the problems that circulators could get valid again, if iterating past the end,
    they are also faster, as the require one check less then the old ones.)</li>
<li>Implement a warning on the operator-- of the old iterators. It was possible to use them to iterate from begin into negative direction. At boundaries,
    that did not work correctly and visited one entity twice. The warning can be disabled via cmake or define (-DNO_DECREMENT_DEPRECATED_WARNINGS ).</li>
