<b>Core</b>
<ul>
<li>Simplified iterators and made them integrate better with the STL. Specifically, value_type has changed from {Vertex,Edge,...} to {Vertex,Edge,...}Handle so that dereferenced iterators can actually be put to use, now.</li>
<li>Consolidated iterator code. Functionally equivalent but way cleaner than before.</li>

  <li>Read/write ascii and binary STL </li>
  <li>Read/write ascii and binary OFF </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.

<li>Added some more dynamic ways to append properties to items:
    OpenMesh::Any and OpenMesh::PropertyT .

<li>VectorT: standard operator less added, Vec4f is now

<li>Use OM_STATIC_BUILD=1 when creating a static library.
    The static version of the library needs to included IOInstances.hh,
    which is done in that case.
    When compiling with MS VC7, the define is set automatically, as 
    the DLL-Version is not supported yet.

<li>Bugs fixed: 0.10.2:{001, 002, 003, 004, 005}
</li>

<li>Added MS VC++ 7.0 project files for the tutorial programms.
    (Have a look in <OpenMesh>/Win32/MSVC/)
</li>

<li>New Input/Output management, see \ref mesh_io. The new interface
    is as backwards-compatible as possible. Only the read_[off,obj]
    and write_[off,obj] methods do no longer exist. You should now
    include OpenMesh/IO/MeshIO.hh instead of MeshReader.hh and
    MeshWriter.hh. The old include files may be removed in a future
    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>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.

             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.
    </ul>
</li>
