Upcoming breaking changes for 1.0 (and improvements)

I've started working on some massive improvements to how relationships are rendered, and better ways to control HTML output of it all.

I've written in detail about this on the wiki: http://scienceproject.codeplex.com/wikipage?title=Display Paradigms

It's quite a long text, but if anyone is interested in understanding a bit more about how Mechanics works and what's in the pipeline then you might want to read it. It goes into quite a bit of detail about why the HTML markup is currently the way it is. I'm not sure if anyone is using these modules enough to be affected by the breaking changes, but if you've done any detailed overriding of templates or placement of Mechanics shapes then it could affect you (but the new system will be much simpler and should have significantly better performance!)

Because the 1.0 changes cover a lot more than just Paradigms, I've created a page to list the main changes. There are many other small tweaks, fixes and optimisations, but they're too numerous to list.
