ODE CHANGELOG
-------------

the rules for this file:
  * entries are sorted newest-first.
  * summarize sets of changes - dont reproduce every CVS log comment here.
  * don't ever delete anything.
  * keep the format consistent (79 char width, M/D/Y date format).

------------------------------------------------------------------------------
02/27/14 Daniel K. O.
        * Added dODE_VERSION macro to public headers (issue #24).

02/11/14 Daniel K. O.
        * Added dJointGetHinge2Angle2 (issue #12).

02/07/14 Daniel K. O.
        * Added dWorldSetData/dWorldGetData (issue #21).

01/31/14 Daniel K. O.
        * Applied patch #185: Stable, implicit gyroscopic forces.

01/27/14 Daniel K. O.
        * Fixed cylinder AABB computation.

01/25/14 Daniel K. O.
        * Removed ALLOCA calls from dHashSpace; it should not depend
          on stack size limits anymore.

12/06/13 Daniel K. O.
        * Applied patch #181: fix some bugs in AMotor joint.
        * Applied patch #186: fix some bugs in PU joint.
        * Applied patch #182: Transmission joint.
        * Applied patch #184: implement rolling friction for contacts.

08/08/13 Oleh Derevenko
        * Joint feedback forces application fixed in QuickStep implementation
          (was broken since revision #1919 in old repository (#1927 in new one))

08/04/13 Oleh Derevenko
        * Bugfix #89 by Luc applied (dJointAddSliderForce() adds a zero force
          when the parent body is NULL) 

05/18/13 Oleh Derevenko
        * OU library has been included in ODE at revision #46 instead of  
          being used as an external link due to difficulties using external 
          references with new protocol used for storage at SF.

03/03/13 Oleh Derevenko
        * Fixed issue with "findex==-1" constraints being intermixed with 
          "findex!=-1" ones during constraints random reordering in QuickStep.

02/03/13 Oleh Derevenko
        * [u]int[8/16/32] renamed to contain "d" prefix so that global namespace
          was not polluted with these names unconditionally. 
          If your project depended on these types other than just for passing 
          parameters to ODE calls, add similar typedefs for yourself in some 
          of your project's global headers.

01/02/13 Oleh Derevenko
        * Applied patch #183 by Joseph Cooper (complementary matrix 
          calculation fix).

12/28/12 Oleh Derevenko
        * A bug with heightfield data assigned to a wrong field in 
          dGeomHeightfieldSetHeightfieldData fixed (bug report #88 by Luc).

12/18/12 Oleh Derevenko
        * Fixed issue with some kinds of joints (Ball, DBall, DHinge, Fixed)
          might overwrite world ERP value with their custom ERP during 
          getInfo2() call and that inappropriate value would then be passed 
          to subsequent joints in solver instead of world ERP.

12/01/12 Oleh Derevenko
        * Fixed issues reported in patches #151 and #22 (collisions with
          SAPSpace and QuadTreeSpace might not work because geometries list
          was misused in them).
        * Applied patch #160 "IsPointInPolygon in convex.cpp returns wrong 
          results" (by Janis Rucis)

        * Configuration option --disable-threading-intf added 
          (--no-threading-intf for Windows/Premake). This allows disabling
          threading interface support (external implementations may not be 
          assigned) but eliminates dependency on OU and use of atomics in 
          steppers.

11/05/12 Oleh Derevenko
        * Fixed zero comparisons in OPCODE to use relative error instead of
          absolute epsilon value (found by Bill Sellers)

06/08/12 Daniel K. O.
        * Removed the need for defining dSINGLE/dDOUBLE; this is stored now in
          the generated ode/precision.h header.
        * Some code cleanup to get rid of GCC warnings.

05/30/12 Daniel K. O.
        * Made drawstuff draw shadows for lines.

04/14/12 Oleh Derevenko
        * Assertion checking macros moved into library private headers.

04/13/12 Daniel K. O.
        * Applied patch from bug  #3431829 - better handling of capsule-box with

        * Fixed zero-mu issues: now either mu or mu2 can be set to zero.

03/17/12 Oleh Derevenko
        * Threaded execution support interface added. Optional built-in threading
          implementation added.
          Internal threading implementation is excluded by default and to be used, 
          it must be enabled with configure/premake.
          At present, if threading interface is assigned to a world, island 
          selection and stepping is performed in multiple threads (one thread per 
          island).

03/12/12 Oleh Derevenko
        * PURE_INLINE macro renamed to ODE_PURE_INLINE and definition of 
          dNextAfter()/dCopySign() corrected to avoid creating conflicts with 
          other libraries.

02/03/12 Oleh Derevenko
        * Assertion checking macros moved from common.h to error.h

12/18/11 Oleh Derevenko
        * dIVERIFY macro added (same as dIASSERT in debug mode but evaluates its
          expression in release mode) to be used to assert variable value 
          which is not used further in text while avoiding compiler warning.
        * dICHECK macro added (same as dIASSERT but evaluates its expression and 
          raises assertion fault regardless of compilation mode) to be used to
          generate a fault in cases when error is very unlikely but must be 
          handled and handling is very troublesome (e.g. failure to lock a mutex
          due to lack of resources).

12/07/11 Oleh Derevenko
        * Partially fixed size_t to integer conversion warnings
        * Fixed type signedness and added casts to size_t wherever necessary

07/16/10 Daniel K. O.
        * Fixed bug #2937076: don't try to build demos if drawstuff is disabled.

05/02/10 Oleh Derevenko
        * Missing extern "C" wrapper has been added to include/ode/export-dif.h

11/29/09 Oleh Derevenko
        * Improvement for trimesh-plane collision (also used in trimesh-heightfield)
          to exclude mesh vertices that have already generated contacts from further
          examination and contact generation in other triangles (suggested by LR).

10/25/09 Oleh Derevenko
        * Macros changed to static inline functions in odemath.h and related files.
          Some code duplication has been eliminated across the files.

        * Fixed handling of --disable-asserts and --enable-double-precision 
          (absence of --enable-double-precision) in configure script. The script
          was not appending compiler defines correctly.

        * dWorldStep implementation changed to remove allocation on stack. 
          dUSE_MALLOC_FOR_ALLOCA define has been removed as well as corresponding
          configuration parameter. Also dMemoryFlag public variable has been removed.
          (look for presence of ODE_EXT_malloc_not_alloca configuration string if

06/27/09 Oleh Derevenko
        * New functions have been added:
           - dWorldUseSharedWorkingMemory
           - dWorldCleanupWorkingMemory

06/14/09 Oleh Derevenko
		* dWorldQuickStep re-implemented to avoid memory allocation on stack.
		  Also several optimizations have been made to decrease memory 
		  requirements and optimize algorithm implementation of dWorldQuickStep.
		  dWorldStep still remains with old memory allocation however new APIs
		  mentioned below are fully functional for it.
		  Both dWorldStep and dWorldQuickStep have been changed to return boolean
		  success status.

		* dInitODE2() changed to automatically call 
		  AllocateODEDataForThread(dAllocateFlagBasicData) after library 
		  initialization as this is a required initialization minimum that
		  must always be performed anyway.

06/05/09 Daniel K. O.

        * A possibility to initialize/close ODE multiple times recursively has 
          been added.
          Also, now a call to dSpaceSetManualCleanup() is required for each 
          space right after creation if ODE has been initialized in thread data
          manual cleanup mode.
           
03/07/09 Oleh Derevenko
        * Thread local data has been cleaned up from OPCODE and OdeTls as it is
          not used (OPC_SweepAndPrune.* and OPC_BoxPruning.* have been removed

       * Applied a patch by Martijn Buijs to make GIMPACT trimesh-ray collisions to
         be consistent with those in OPCODE.
       * Swapped geometries returned in contacts for OPCODE Trimesh-Plane collisions
         as they were returned in unnatural order being different from that in GIMPACT
       * Applied a patch by Martijn Buijs to make side1, side2 fields of contact 
         structure be always initialized, either with -1 for non-trmesh geometries
         or with triangle index for trimeshes. These fields were only assigned for
         trimesh-trimesh collisions before.
       * dGeomTriMeshSetTriMergeCallback/dGeomTriMeshGetTriMergeCallback API added
         to set/get user defined callback procedure for trimeshes that would be 
         invoked when contacts are merged to let user code accumulate attributes of
         original contact triangles and generate a fake index by which it would 
         later be able to determine those attributes. If the callback is not 
         assigned (the default) -1 is generated as triangle index for merged 
         contacts (there was an index of first of merged triangles before!!!).
         The callback is currently used within OPCODE trimesh-sphere and OPCODE
         new trimesh-trimesh collisions.

05/18/04 russ

	* added warm starting to the QuickStep solver

05/18/04 russ

        * use dRandInt instead of rand() in stepfast.

04/21/04 russ

	* added auto-disable support from Aras Pranckevicius (with
	  modifications by russ). this useful feature can speed up
	  simulation significantly in some cases.
	
	* various internal tidyups.

04/20/04 russ

	* changed the meaning of the 'index' argument to dJointGetBody():
	  it was the only remaining API function that does not respect
	  dJOINT_REVERSE (spotted by Matthew D. Hancher).
	
	* updated the C++ headers: fixed two minor bugs and added
	  support for dQuadTreeSpace, dRay, and the dGeom::getSpace() method
	  (from Matthew D. Hancher).

04/18/04 russ

	* changed the way that the dInfinity constant is implemented: now it
	  is #defined to be one of: FLT_MAX, DBL_MAX, HUGE_VAL, HUGE_VALF, or
	  a large numeric constant. previously it was a variable that was
	  exported from the library. this simplifies the configuration and
	  build process quite a bit, especially in the case of DLLs.
	
	* removed the old, deprecated collision system (geom.cpp,space.cpp,
	  geom.h,space.h,odecpp_old_collision.h). the ODE_OLD_COLLISION
	  configuration setting no longer has any meaning.
	
	* removed support for dGeomGroups, which have been deprecated for
	  a while and are equivalent to 'spaces' anyway.

04/13/04 russ

	* bug fix in dMassSetCappedCylinder(), from Matthew D. Hancher.

04/08/04 russ

	* added trimesh-CCylinder capability, from Vadim Macagon
	  <vadim_mcagon@hotmail.com>.

04/04/04 adam

        * yet another rewrite of triangle-box collision code, this
        time based on code donated by Croteam, ported by asko@jetti.org
        and tweaked by Erwin.

04/04/04 adam

        * merged trimesh-trimesh collision code by
        Jeffrey Smith <jeffreys@Softimage.com>.

        * changed it to not break the trimesh interface, fix
        some GCC compilation problems, bring it up to date with
        ODE changes from 2003-11-15 -> 2004-04-04.

        * add ability to drop meshes on meshes in test_moving_trimesh,
        not as good as it could be but it's illustrative.

01/16/04 adam

	* implement a bunch of ultra-simple TriMesh functions that were
	in the headers but not in the code -- patch by
	Vadim Macagon <vadim_mcagon@hotmail.com>

	* disable temporal coherence on trimeshes by default, since
	it has scaleability issues that don't make it a general clear win.

12/01/03 adam

	* implement dxHashSpace::collide2(), not particularly efficiently.

11/14/03 adam

	* applied several Trimesh fixes and improvements from
	Aras Pranckevicius <nearaz@interamotion.com>

	  core. both of these were developed by Erwin de Vries. added OPCODE
	  to the ODE distribution, this is required by TriMesh.

	  dBodyGetPosRelPoint(), dBodyGetPosRelPoint(), dBodyVectorToWorld(),
	  dBodyVectorFromWorld().

	* added dBodyGetPointVel() (thanks to Colin Reed).

	* added a new C++ interface (from Martin C. Martin, with modifications
	  by russ). the old C++ interface is now in odecpp_old.h.

06/25/02 russ

	* added an additional BSD-style licensing option for ODE.

06/23/02 russ

	* added dCloseODE(), contributed by Nate Waddoups and David McClurg.

05/16/02 russ

	* added dSpaceQuery(), contributed by Nate Waddoups.

04/07/02 russ

	* added a section to the documentation for universal joints.
	  this includes a picture of the joint.

04/05/02 russ

	* added a universal joint class (generously contributed by
	  Martin C. Martin). it doesn't (yet) have a motor or joint limits,
	  but it does come with tests.

03/11/02 russ

	* makefile changes to accomodate OSs with command line length
	  limitations (thanks to Norman Lin).

01/06/02 russ

	* added the dBodySetGravityMode() and dBodyGetGravityMode()
	  functions, which change the dxBodyNoGravity body flag.

	* added support for building a DLL with MSVC - there is now a
	  msvc-dll target. thanks to Norman Lin for doing this.

12/28/01 russ

	* added the dParamCFM joint parameter.

12/24/01 russ

	* reworked the build system to make it more cross-platform.
	  there is now a single top-level makefile and a configurator.c
	  program. see the INSTALL file for details.

12/04/01 russ

	* the "angular motor" joint has been completed, and a new section
	  has been added to the documentation.

11/26/01 russ

	* added a new joint type: "angular motor". using this joint is a good
	  way to get ball-joint motors and limits. this is work in progress -
	  it has not been fully implemented or tested yet.

11/22/01 russ

	* replaced the mmap()-based joint group stack (stack.cpp) with a
	  malloc()-based arena stack (obstack.cpp). this will be more
	  portable and should not impact performance.

11/12/01 russ

	* changed the meaning of the 'flags' parameter to dCollide() and
	  related functions: now the size of the contact buffer is kept in
	  the lower 16 bits. this change will be backward compatible.

	* added dBodyGetFiniteRotationMode() and dBodyGetFiniteRotationAxis().

	* added dBodyAddForceAtRelPos() function.

11/11/01 russ

	* added the ability to manually enable and disable bodies.
	  see dBodyEnable(), dBodyDisable(), dBodyIsEnabled().

	* fixed a potential bug: when a world is destroyed that contains
	  joints in joint groups, those joints are marked as "deactivated" in
	  the joint group, so when the joint group is destroyed they can be
	  ignored.

	* the test_boxstack demo has new options to enable and disable bodies.

	* new configuration parameter in config.h: dEFFICIENT_SIZE.

11/11/01 russ

	* started the change log for ODE. changes older than today were added
	  to this file by inspecting the CVS logs.

11/05/01 russ

	* added REAL() constructions for floating point numbers, to prevent
	  many warnings when compiling under VC++.

11/03/01 russ

	* added geometry transform class, documented composite objects.

	* added collision rule: no contacts if both geoms on the same body.
	  this is not the best rule, may have to remove this in the future.

	* new dMassAdd() function.

	* capped cylinder to capped cylinder collision function.

10/31/01 russ

	* increase CFM in some demos to make them more robust.

10/29/01 russ

	* added new accessor functions.

10/19/01 russ

	* added the dJOINT_TWOBODIES flag to the joint, that says it can not
	  be attached to just one body.

10/12/01 russ

	* fixed a collision bug in dCollide() that was causing memory
	  corruption when multiple contacts were being returned.

10/11/01 russ

	* joints can now return m=0 to be "inactive". added a "null" joint
	  to test this.

10/09/01 russ

	* in the LCP solver, try to fail gracefully when s <= 0.

	* dAABBTestFn() API change.

10/08/01 russ

	* fixed a contact swapping bug in dCollide().

	* added a dAABBTestFn field in the geometry classes.

09/29/01 russ

	* added geometry groups.

09/20/01 russ

	* added finite rotation stuff.
