LIGGGHTS 2.0.3: (released 13 July 2012)

+ Finally released a first version for fix mesh/surface/stress to perform mesh stressanalysis. Re-added the "chute_wear" example into the release, doc was also updated accordingly
+ Implemented general reverse communication for mesh properties
+ Fixed an issue with shear history transfer between co-planar faces revaled by a test harness run
+ Improved recognition of shared edges and nodes in the surface mesh implementation
+ Added a new option 'area' to dump mesh/vtk to dump the area
+ Added the 'shear' option for primitive fix wall/gran styles that was missing. Removed the 'wiggle' option from the doc which is no longer available in 2.X. Please note that you can do all this and more with fix move/mesh. Thanks to Eric Partelli (U Erlangen) for noting there was a problem.

Fixed a couple issues with particle insertion:
+ Fixed a round-off glitch in particle insertion which could make the insertion hang when run in parallel.
+ Fixed a bug in fix insert/rate/region where the 'nparticles' flag was not correctly recognized. Thanks to Chris Stoltz (P&G) for the hint.
+ Fixed a bug where fix insert/stream insertion was not performed correctly if there was a run between the fix mesh/surface and the fix insert/stream command. Thanks to Daniel Schiochet Nasato (JKU) for noting this and providing a test case.
