Guillaume Delhumeau 5.1 16 This version brings a lot of usability improvements. The WYSIWYG editor (//CKEditor//) has been upgraded and proposes a better dialog for the creation of links. It is also possible to configure it from the administration.
Guillaume Delhumeau 1.1 17
Guillaume Delhumeau 5.1 18 Application Within Minutes does not enforce anymore the location where the application's entries must be created, but proposes to the creator the places //where// and //from where// these entries should be. We have also get rid of the ##Data## page where the entries where created before.

20 The default values of the user preferences are now better exposed to the users. The order of the applications in the [[application panel>>extensions:Extension.Panels Application||anchor="HApplicationPanel"]] can now be changed by the administrator. And the users now have the ability to filter the page types when they create a page.

Eduard Moraru 18.2 64 When upgrading make sure you compare your ##xwiki.cfg##, ##xwiki.properties## and ##web.xml## files with the newest version since some configuration parameters may have been modified or added. Note that you should add ##xwiki.store.migration=1## so that XWiki will attempt to automatically migrate your current database to the new schema. Make sure you backup your Database before doing anything.
