===============================================================================
geometry-1.5.0   Release Date: 2012-06-05  Release Manager: Juan Pablo Carbajal
===============================================================================

* Added functions:
 - cov2ellipse  & ellipse2cov: transform between ellipses and covariances matrices.

 - beltproblem  : Finds the four lines tangent to two circles with given centers and
    radii. This is the solution to  the belt problem in 2D.

 - curveval : Evaluates a polynomial curve defined as a 2-by-N matrix.

 - curve2polyline : Converts a polynomial curve into a polyline by the adaptive
                sampling method.

 - simplifypolyline :  Ramer-Douglas-Peucker algorithm to simplify polylines.

 - parametrize : Estimate a parametrization of a polygon/line based on the distance
             between the points.

 - curvature : Estimation of the curvature of a polygon/line based on polynomial
            approximation.

 - reversePolygon  and reversePolyline : reverse the orders of the points in
                                 of polygon/line.

 - supportFunction : Compute support function of a polygon.

 - distancePointPolygon , distancePointPolyline , distancePolygons  ,
   expandPolygon , medialAxisConvex , polygonLoops , polygonSelfIntersections
   polylineSelfIntersections , splitPolygons

 - close_path  : given a set of points in the plane calculate a piecewise linear
              simple path that passes through all points.

* Changed functions:
 - distancePointEdge : Now the function computes the distance between all points
                  and all edges. A third optional argument provides
                  backward compatibility.

* Solved bugs:
 - simplifypolygon  returned empty polygons when points are repeated, i.e when
  the polygon is not correctly formed.
 - Removed installation warnings.

===============================================================================
geometry-1.4.1   Release Date: 2012-03-24  Release Manager: Juan Pablo Carbajal
===============================================================================

* Renamed functions
 - Contents  renamed to geom2d_Contents to avoid clashes.

* Deprecated functions
 - svgload, svgnormalize, svgpath2polygon: Use the methods in class svg.

* Bug fixes
 - @svg/path2polygon
 - Fix addpath/rmpath installation warnings
 - Fix octclip/src/Makefile
 - Fix shapecentriod  for piece-wise polynomial shapes.

* Known issues
 - simplifypolygon  returns empty polygons when points are repeated, i.e when
  the polygon is not correctly formed.
