<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>

    that did not work correctly and visited one entity twice. The warning can be disabled via cmake or define (-DNO_DECREMENT_DEPRECATED_WARNINGS ).</li>
