*** *Updated* particle tracking algorithm
*** *Updated* split cyclics into two separate patches. See doc/changed/splitCyclics.txt
*** *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
numbers of monitored files. No more fileModificationSkew needed.
+ single integer reduction instead of one reduction per monitored file.
* 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

Mesh converters
---------------
Most mesh formats use cyclics in a single patch (i.e. the old way).
The converters have been adapted to use the patch 'oldCyclic' instead of
'cyclic'. oldCyclic uses the 17x automatic ordering but writes 'type cyclic'
so afterwards foamUpgradeCyclics can be run to upgrade.
