------------------------------------------

* Library:

6 7 8 9 10 11 12
  * Modularization
     * Code is now better organized in groups/modules/classes
     * ITK CMake architecture to handle module and dependencies is used
     * Modules can be deactivated at will with dependencies tracking
     * Third parties software are handled as module and can be deactivated
     * Tests and applications are embedded in modules
     * Writing of new module or update of existing modules is simplified by cmake magic
13

14 15 16
  * Remove deprecated code
     * MeanShiftVectorImageFilter  and MeanShiftImageFilter classes
     * CommandLineLauncher(const char * exp) and Load( const std::string & exp ) methods in CommandLineLauncher class

    * Sources are checked out at configuration time or can be downloaded beforehand
    * Allow to build a complete OTB with a handful of prerequisites (gcc, cmake, curl)
