Din3D importer for Cinema 4D changelog

I’m going to assume the main changes I’ve made on plugins. So that the connections in the export and the import plugin could be followed, I listed them aside each other. I tried to pay much attention on the compatibility, but please use the latest version to avoid problems.

See the complete changelog here.
