today we released OpenMesh 4.0 which is still fully backward compatible
with the 2.x and 3.x branch. We marked some functions which should not
be used anymore as deprecated and added hints which should be used instead.
The version jump is mainly to indicate the changed license, which is now
BSD-3. Although it's even more open we still encourage users of the
library to submit bugfixes and improvements back to the project.
The other changes incorporate mostly bugfixes. Next to these we added
support for custom properties to the PLY reader and improved the
documentation for the I/O section.
This will be the last release supporting VS2008 and VS2010 and other
compilers lacking C++11 support.
As usual the full changelog is available on our website:
