+Voronoi was developed as part of Google Summer of Code 2010. The
+library was actively maintained for the last two years and involved
+strong math research in the field of algorithms, data structures,
+relative error arithmetic and numerical robustness. Nowadays one can
+often read scientific article that contains non-practical theoretical
+results or implementation with
+benchmarks nobody else can reproduce. The opposite story is with
+Voronoi. We provide pure implementation and benchmarks one may run on
+his PC. In case community finds it useful we will incrementally
+add more documentation on the theoretical side of our realization.<br>
