<b>Breaking Changes</b>
<ul>
<li>PropertyManager: PropertyManager only gives const access to the underlying mesh.</li>
</ul>

17 18 19
<b>Core</b>
<ul>
<li>Property System: Get rid of the OM_FORCE_STATIC_CAST defines. We use the type ids to check if the cast is valid or not. This will add more type safety. </li>

Max Lyon committed
20 21
<li>Default Traits: Added DefaultTraitsDouble as a version of the default traits that uses double precision for positions and normals as well as float for colors. </li>
<li>Default Mesh Types: Added typdefs for a Triangle Mesh and a PolyMesh which use DefaultTraitsDouble and can be used as default mesh type be the user. </li>

22 23 24
<li>Template Programming Convenience: Added n_elements which returns the number of elements corresponding to the handle type given as template argument. Also added elements and all_elements methods returning ranges of the elements corresponding to the handle type given as template argument.</li>
<li>Smart Handles: Most userfacing functions returning handles should now return smart handles instead. Smart handles know their corresponding mesh and give convenient access to mesh navigation methods.
<li>Smart Ranges: OpenMesh ranges now provide a few methods that simplify a few calculations. See documentation for more details.

62 63 64
<b>Breaking changes:</b>
<ul>
<li>Don't run and test on VS2013 anymore. As VS2013 still lacks some C++11 features, we remove it from our list of supported platforms</li>
65
<li>(Only internally breaking change:)Get rid of the T.cc naming for template implementations. New names end with T_impl.hh. This avoids all the missing files in the IDE GUIs due to the filtered T.cc files. Also the install targets could be simplified due to this change. For OpenMesh users, this change should be transparent.</li>
66 67

<b>Core</b>
