  - \b 29/12/2002 (thof)
    - aff::ConstArray and aff::ConstSeries now inherit from
      aff::ConstSharedHeap. See "\ref sec_design_replicated".
    - added section about sparse interface
      (\ref sec_design_interface_sparse)
    - added section about accessing internals
      (\ref sec_design_interface_internals)
    - \b !! reworked class aff::util::Subarray and introduced
      aff::subarray
    - \b !! reworked class aff::util::Slice and introduced
      aff::slice

    - use "using" syntax for access declarations
    - overloaded, protected versions of write-access operators lead to
      conflicts in derived classes. Resolved that conflicts and made shared
      heap objects data members in container classes.
    - aff::Strided now provides Fortran style constructor
    - reworked array classes to use shared heap member data and correct set of
      access operators - looks much more natural now
    - explain concept of member data representation 
      (\ref sec_design_hierarchy)
    - reworked series classes in the same way as array classes
    - introduced lib/deepcopy.h
    - factored out common code in copyin functions to aff::util::deepcopy
    - now and aff::Array should be able to copy in the values of an
      aff::Series

  - \b 28/12/2002 (thof)
    - \b !! Wolfgang pointed out a fundamental design error: Classes
      aff::Array, aff::Series and aff::SharedHeap used a specialization of
      themselves as base class to implement a version for const element type
      (see "\ref sec_design_const"). Since specialization may only be declared
      after the general template itself, the base class definition is not
      available at the point it is used in the declaration of the general
      class template. We made the base class a completely independent class
      template. Base classes aff::ConstArray, aff::ConstSeries, and
      aff::ConstSharedHeap are introduced.
    - reworked documentation in
      -# lib/README
      -# lib/sharedheap.h
      -# array_dec.h

71
  - \b 27/12/2002 (thof)
72
    - completed Fortran interface documentation (\ref page_fortran)

  - \b 23/12/2002 (thof)
    - coded class aff::Subarray
    - coded class aff::Slice
    - introduced tests/helpertest.cc to test aff::Iterator,
      aff::Subarray and aff::Slice and tested helper classes
    - reorganized aff::Iterator code. Inheritance from Stepper does not work.
    - aff::Array::copyin() and aff::Array::copyout() work

    - Access declarations are nor useable with functions
      that return a reference to *this. They must be
      reimplemented.
    - introduced class aff::LinearShape
    - provide appropriate Tstepper typedef in shape classes (requires forward
      declarations of stepper classes, because we do not like to include the
      full stepper header if we don't use it).
    - introduced aff::Iterator class template

    - reviewed README entirely
    - Remove unresolvable doxygen links in documentation parts of the code.
      Notice: There remain doxygen warning. Doxygen cannot deal with access
      declarations and has problems with member typedefs.

      functions and not through conversion operators.

    - Factored out header files for dump functions for different classes.
      This is necessary to use the SimpleRigidArray dump function within the
      Array class definition.
    - introduced function aff::util::StridedStepper::valid()

      basic tests
