- Add interpolation FMM based on uniform grid points (ufmm)
22
- Add the group tree and the things related to starpu (runtime system)
23
- Change the P2P (it is now done by tree functions in the abstract kernel) refer to the P2P page of the doc
24 25
- Update the P2P/M2L prototype, the position of the elements is known from an array position
- Fix bug in SSE, AVX, ...  kernel 1/r

- There is no more ScalFMM variables and defines but only SCALFMM (all letters in upper case)
- We start to use unique ptr (and advise to use it) in the main files
