Resolved issues

The %ifb filename pattern substitution for output filenames has been fixed.

The documentation for FindOneP error handling has been enhanced.

The fatal error on writing an output file if a second input file is missing products is fixed.

New features

The implementation of art::Ptr<T> has been changed in a way that allows art to now support input files with diverse processing histories, for example Data and MC can now be read in the same job.  These changes also allow Ptr<T> to be used in Run and SubRun products to refer to other Run and SubRun products respectively.  Cross-references between Event, Run, and SubRun products is not supported yet, but it may be possible in the future.
