    in multiple particle contributions in SimCalorimeterHits instead of both the primary and secondary PDGs.

2015/05/13 Markus Frank
  - Fix bug in DDG4, which forced DDG4 to exit if a property from the Geant4 prompt could
    not be set. No an error message is printed and the prompt is returned to the user.
    (Bug submitted by A. Sailer)

2015/05/11 Andre Sailer
  - CMake updates:
         - Split libraries into components: use find_package(DD4hep COMPONENTS <component> [...] )
           to find the components you need.
         - At the moment there are these components are sensible to link against: DDRec, DDG4, DDEve, DDSegmentation
         - To link against the librarie use either DD4hep_COMPONENT_LIBRARIES or DD4hep_<COMPONENT>_LIBRARY,
           where <COMPONENT> needs to be replaced by the UPPER case name of the component

2015/05/09 Markus Frank
  - Allow to access detectors by type from lcdd.
         - The sensitive type of a detector is set in the 'detector constructor'.
         - Not sensitive detector structures have the name 'passive'
         - Compounds (ie. nested detectors) are of type 'compound'
  - Dump detector types using plugin:
         geoPluginRun -plugin DD4hepDetectorTypes -input <compact-file>

     with DD4hep surfaces and DDKalTest

    - changed Marlin(DD)KalTestTrack::initialise(  const EVENT::TrackState& ts, double bfield_z, bool fitDirection )
      to ignore the bfield_z parameter and get it from the first hit
    - fixes issue in MarlinTrkUtils/finaliseLCIOTrack() where the method above is used 
      but the bfield is not available
    - should consider changing IMarlinTrkTrack interface ...
    - use new LCDD detector lists to create DDKalDetectors only 
      for "tracker" and "passive" sub detectors, 
      i.e. calorimeters are ignored
     - made MarlinTrk::Factory a singleton
     - sub sequent calls to init() can only change the options (MSQ,Eloss)
     - Factory caches one IMarlinTrkSystem of every type 
    IN THEIR CODE (Marlin processor)

    - fixed MarlinTrkUtils::createFinalisedLCIOTrack for
      fitting insode out (forward ):

   - DDCellsAutomatonMV: adapted CA to DD4hep (R.Simoniello)

   - modified RefitProcessor (F.Gaede)
    - InitialTrackState: allows to select one of the track states (or use hits) 
    - FitDirection: allow to fit forwards or backwards (default)
    -> can use for CLIC SiBarrel tracker to refit TrackState AtIP 
       in forward direction

   - adapted to new MarlinTrk::Factory: no longer delete the IMarlinTrkSystem pointer
     at the end of the processing for all fitters

   - ExtrToTracker: add new processor that extracts an existing track to another 
     tracking subdetector (R.Simoniello)

   - added DDPlanarDigiProcessor which uses the DDRec::Surface
     for smearing the hits (no gear needed) (F.Gaede)

      TrackSubsetProcessor, RefittProcessor)    (F.Gaede)
      - set parameter "TrackSystemName" to "DDKalTest"

    of hits into several collections, based on the layerID
    of the hits (works for all lcio hit types) (F.Gaede)

   - ExtrToSIT: added processor for refitting and propagating track from TPC or VXD to SIT (Y.Voutsinas)

   - reverted changes for dEdx calculationin FullLDCMarlinTrk: moved to new processor (M.Kurata)

 MarlinKinfit v00-01-05 

   - J. List
    adjusted version number in CMakeLists.txt, removed obsolete PConstraint,  
    added directory not_used and moved there all the Track / Vertex fitting stuff which
    had only recently (r4750) been transfered from H1 version and is now being
    overhauled by Daniel Jeans.  

    First version after refactoring of FitObject inheritance tree (D. Jeans)
    Minimized duplication of code in derived classes at the price of a
    overall limit on the maximum number of parameters, to be set in BaseDefs.h/cc
    As a consequence, the logic of the copy constructors / assignment operators
    had to be adjusted. 

 LCTuple v01-04

 F. Mueller, C. Duerig, A. Ebrahimi
   - Added JetBranches which holds branches created from a jet collection
     created by Satoru Jet Finder processor.
     JetBranches has two steerable parameters which are optionally
     set in the steering file:
      * writeExtraParameters: if set to TRUE, the fill function
        calculates some extra parameters using parameters provided
        by the jet finding algorithm. Default value is FALSE.
        See class data members for a list of extra parameters.
      * writeTaggingParameters: if set to TRUE, the fill function
        creates branches for jet parameters coming form flavor tagging
        processor. If no flavor tagging processr is used, this should
        be set to FALSE to prevent errors. Default value is FALSE.
        See class data members for a list of extra parameters.
   - Added isolated lepton branches
   - Added MC particle from relation branches
   - Added MC particle remove overlay branches

 MarlinTPC v01-00

  Major changes! (O. Schaefer)

Restructured build mechanism of MarlinTPC and TPCCondData, such that the latter
is now a subproject and can be built stand alone with way less dependencies.
The MarlinTPC build works the same as in the past and automatically triggers the
build of TPCCondData. Details are specified in the cmake_README and README

There where some dependencies introduced from TPCCondData on MarlinTPC
(Exceptions). These where rectified. Such dependencies can't be reintroduced in
future, as in that case the build of TPCCondData, and thus MarlinTPC, will fail.
TPCCondData doesn't know about MarlinTPC anymore, but vice verser.

The build procedure for documentation was also affected. If the option
-DINSTALL_DOC=ON was supplied to the cmake command, there is the possibillity to
execute "make TPCCondDatadoc". "make doc" was already in use for MarlinTPC
documentation, so this other name was chosen instead.

Several formal errors where discovered in the documentation. Due to a former
mistake in the script, comments would be placed above the
"namespace" keyword and be included into the namespace documentation. I
corrected for that in the script and the affected processors. Additionally there
is now a header file "general/MarlinTPCNamespaceDoc.h" to contain the namespace
documentation in a central place. A similar header exists for TPCCondData.
In the affected processors also a credit was placed, indicating the usage of the script. This should allow to track possible errors in the
script and affected processors in future.

Furthermore, all compiler warnings where removed. There where "ambiguous else
statements", "variable set but not used", "signed/unsigned comparison" and "not
used" warnings. I corrected these and added TODO comments, for the programmers
to check, if these corrections didn't alter the meaning of the code.

  - Many other developments - bug fixes

 MarlinUtil v01-08-01

   - added functions for cluster shape calculation (M. Kurata) 

 MOKKA mokka-08-05

  What is new in this Mokka release
 	 - patch by A.Sailer, CERN
 	   made compatible w/ Geant4 10.1
 	     - G4EmSaturation() constructor now takes verbosity as mandatory argument (default used to be 1)
  	     - RunManager previousEvents changed from std::vector to std::list (which does not have operator[], but front() both of them have)
	     - Added "CLHEP::" to some units, which were not known otherwise
	  - S.Lu, DESY:
	     Added a new driver TubeX02, same as TubeX01. Added userInitString Beam_Residual_Gas_Material,
	     and allow user to update the beam gas material at mokka run time. The available beam gas materials will be defined in the mokka database.
	  - D.Jeans:

	    - the vertex (and time) info which is read in a .hepevt file, is completely ignored in the current code,
	      and doesn't make it into the lcio MCParticle, the added correction reads vertex information
	    - updated ./source/Geometry/LDC/src/
	      added additional parameters to the ECAL description in the gear file including also for the preshower
