<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>

74
<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>Change of directory structure
    <pre>
+- %OpenMesh/
   +- Core/     # previously %OpenMesh
   +- Tools/    # previously OpenMeshTools
   +- Apps/     # previously OpenMeshApps

    Note! The supplied script \c %OpenMesh/migrate.sh can be used to
    adjust include paths and ACGMakefiles. (It's not guarantied the
    script handles every case, but so far it did not missed a file to
    adjust.)
</li>

<li><b>Porting issues</b>: Due to a number of major changes in the
    structure of %OpenMesh a few incompatibilities have been
    introduced. Have look in <b>\c %OpenMesh/porting.txt </b> for hints how to
    treat your source when updating from 0.11.x to
     1.0.0.<br>Hint! The supplied script \c %OpenMesh/migrate.sh does a
    few of the necessary modifications. 
</li>

<li><b>The list kernel has been removed</b>
</li>

<li>Improved IO support:
  <ul>
  <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>
