New Developments

The intention of this page is to summarize changes in the literature. I am afraid, it will never be exhausting and certainly not satisfying to everyone as some of those changes listed below will continue to be discussed by experts in the field. However, this list may help to reduce the level of confusion caused by changes of names.
