ENH: ReleaseNotes : update

*** Core library
+ Large number of code refinements and consistency improvements to support
other developments.
Parallel : using non-blocking communications wherever possible. This will
lead to lower requirements for MPI_BUFFER_SIZE and possibly better
start-up performance on larger numbers of processors.
*** Turbulence modelling
*** *Updated* thermophysical libraries
+ Now use the more descriptive dictionary input format, e.g. for a single

+ Parallel aware
*** *New* ptscotch decomposition method
*** *Updated* particle tracking algorithm
+ uses non-blocking parallel transfers
+ does 'minimum-tet' decomposition of face to work with warped faces (snappyHexMesh!)
+ reuses tracking state in interpolation - improves consistency and speed
*** *Updated* split cyclics into two separate patches. See doc/changed/splitCyclics.txt
* *Updated* interpolation (volPointInterpolation) now works without the
globalPointPatch. Moving mesh cases can now be run non-parallel and
continued in parallel and reconstructed without any limitation.
*** *New* compact binary I/O for faces and cells. This speeds up reading/writing meshes in binary.
*** *Updated* runTimeModifiable
+ on linux uses inotify instead of time stamps - more efficient for large
+ user selectable model to use for checking run-time modifiable
dictionaries:
+ timeStamp : use time stamp as before
+ inotify : use inotify instead of time stamp
+ timeStampMaster : only master checks and reads file. Slaves get file
contents from master.
+ inotifyMaster : only master checks and reads file. Slaves get file
contents from master.
+ on linux optionally uses inotify instead of time stamps - more efficient for large
numbers of monitored files. No more fileModificationSkew needed.
+ single integer reduction instead of one reduction per monitored file.
+ only files that can be re-read are being checked. Drastic reduction of
number of files to check.
* Solvers
A number of new solvers have been developed for a range of engineering
applications. There has been a set of improvements to certain classes of
