Minko 2 COLLADA extension available

The COLLADA files loader in Minko 2 now provides much faster parsing times. Tests show some of files now take up to 10 times less time to load. You can now load 100+MB *.DAE files containing 600 000 polygons and more, including animations. Another important addition is that we now parse a lot more data about the materials. We are now able to load material values such as the reflectivity, shininess and more to make it easier for the artists to customize the rendering using their favorite CAO tool.
