    ecef2enu      ecef2enuv     ecef2ned   ecef2nedv
    egm96geoid    enu2geodetic  enu2ecef   enu2ecefv

    geodetic2enu  geodetic2ned  ned2aer    ned2ecef
    ned2ecefv     ned2geodetic  scxsc      str2angle
  * Bug fixes:
    + gpxread.m  (bug #58701):
  - read milliseconds in Time nodes in Tracks, if present.
    Time fields in Waypoint sections are still ignored.
  - Various other fixes (missing Ele(vation) and Time nodes,
    texinfo help text).
    + kmlread.m (bug #58854):
  - Accept various mixed time formats.
  - Be more flexible regarding missing fields.
    Note: kmlread.m is still considered experimental.
    Thanks to Geoff Warne for supplying numerous .gpx and .kml
    test files and aid in diagnosing issues.
    + roundn.m: much improved Matlab-compatibility
    + angl2str.m: ditto, thanks to Ricardo Fantin da Costa
    + shapedraw: fix some Point geometry plotting logic, return
    empty file handle in case of empty shapes
  * Code improvements
    + distance.m: improve accuracy for small distances-

- Update to version 1.4.0
  * The mapping package now depends on the geometry and io packages. The
    (suggested) dependency on the octclip package has been removed.
  * The following functions are new in mapping 1.4.0:
    aer2ecef        aer2enu         aer2geodetic      aer2ned
    axes2ecc        antipode        closePolygonParts deg2nm

  * Bug fixes:
    shapedraw.m:  * Fix color arg. bug when drawing (poly)line
  * Restore input check order.
  * Do not connect multipoint shapes.
    shaperead.m:  * Fix reading 'line' geometries.
  * Ignore shapes with (almost) infinite
  * Fix .shx file usage.
  * Move file existence check to start of function.
  * Fix reading MultiPoint shapefiles.
  * Provision for absent M-values in M and Z
  * More robust input validation.
  * Properly process BoundingBox limits.
  * Fix incompatible dimensions bug when reading
    Multipoint files.
  * Fix reading selected attributes.
    shapewrite.m: * Various fixes (credits to a.o., Martin Kunz,
  * Properly write missing M-values.
  * Fix OOM error when writing large Point type files.
  * Fix and overhaul writing requested attributes.
    Fixes for bug #53422:
  * Unconditionally write .dbf file.
  * Fix record lengths for all Point types.
  * Fix XY coordinate write order for all Multipoint
  * Update .shx header as well.
    rasterinfo.m: * Show nr. of bands and bounding box.
  * Code improvements
    shaperead.m:  * Invoke the Clipper library for clipping polylines
    and polygons, leading to much improved performance
    when invoking the BoundingBox option together with
    the Clip option. To use this feature the Octave-
    Forge geometry package >= 4.0.0 must be installed
    and loaded.
  * New features
    shapewrite.m: * Allow writing M & Z shape types (Matlab-
    incompatible types, yet supported by Octave).
Version: 1.2.1-bp150.2.1
* Fri Jun 10 2016
- Update to version 1.2.1
  * New functions: rasterread, rasterinfo, rasterdraw, gdalread,
    wrapToPi, wrapTo2Pi, wrapTo180, wrapTo360,
  * New features
  - Reading GIS raster data.
  - mapshow.m: drawing raster data is now supported.
  - shapedraw.m: drawing speed of filled polygons and multipatches
    is much improved
