147 148 149 150
<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>
