<b>Core</b>
<ul>
<li>Fixed crash when writing with multiple threads to mostream. closes #2293 (Note: This fix is only active with C++11 support) </li>

<li>fix "relink failed" condition closes #1244. This patch fixes a rare condition in add_face, where a non-manifold configuration could be created. </li>

15 16 17 18
<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>

  <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>Support importing diffuse material into face color property from
      OBJ files.
  </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.
    </li>
  </ul>
</li>

<li>OpenSG Support:
  <ul>
    <li>New kernel type \c class TriMesh_OSGArrayKernelT<>.
      <ul>
        <li>Uses OpenSG geometry types!</li>
        <li>PolyMesh not supported, yet!</li>
      </ul>
    <li>Use \c OpenMesh::Kernel_OSG::bind<> to link a mesh obj with an
        \c osg::Geometry and vice versa.<br>Please note that both objects
        share the same data!
      <ul>
       <li>Binding a mesh to an \c osg::Geometry changes the content
           of the \c osg::Geometry!
       <li>Triangulates non-triangular faces!</li>
       <li>Multi-indexed geometry not supported!</li>
       <li>Transfer of vertex normals</li>
       <li>Limited capability to transfer colors: 
           So far, only \c osg::Color3f <-> \c OpenMesh::Vec3ub
      </ul>
    </li>
  </ul>

  <ul>

     <ul>
     <li>\c Tools/VDPM (View Dependent Progressive Mesh Library)
       <ul>
         <li>\c Apps/VDProgMesh/mkbalancedpm - Create a balanced

<ul>

<li>Bugs fixed: 0.11.0:{001, 002, 003, 004, 006}<br><br>
    006: Use acgmake version 1.1.1.
</li>

<li>Preprocessor warnings of gcc >= 3 fixed.
</li>

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

<li>VectorT: standard operator less added, Vec4f is now
    16-bit aligned using gcc compiler (for later SIMD usage).
</li>

<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.
    acgmake (Version >= 1.1) set the define automatically when
    using the flag for static compiling.
</li>

<li>The read_mesh() methods now clears the mesh before reading a new one.
</li>

<li>Added can_read() and can_write() methods to the IOManager.

<ul>

<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>OpenMesh::Concepts::KernelT::halfedges_empty()
    <li>OpenMesh::Concepts::KernelT::halfedge_handle(unsigned int _i)

    <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

<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.
