+* Version 3.5.1
+
+ o Fixed autoconf/automake:
+
+ * Should always work if maya/rman are disabled (the default)
+
+ * Removed checking for specific versions of maya & compiler
+ combinations--there's too many to check them all.
+
+ * Tries to use the 'buildconfig' file included in the Maya distro when
+ building maya plugins. This should make supporting different
+ versions and platforms a lot easier.
+
+ * Rman is not tested recently, but is much simpler than maya, so it
+ should work
+
+ o Added gtoDB python module, as a faster replacement for gtoContainer.py
+
+ * gtoDB is written in swig. The cpp file is in the dist, so swig itself
+ is only needed if the .i files are changed.
+
+ o gtoIO and GtoDeformer build, but GtoCacheEmitter, GtoParticleDisplay, and
+ GtoParticleExport are missing dependencies from the Tweak source tree.
+ I'm leaving them in the distro in case someone wants to use them as a
+ starting point. Maybe someday they'll get fixed.

* Version 3.5
o Added houndini geo converter and four new maya plugins: GtoDeformer,
