Marius Dumitru Florea 25.1 19 == App Within Minutes ==
20
21 The [[App Within Minutes>>extensions:Extension.App Within Minutes Application]] wizard is now generating all the application pages in a single location, as nested pages. The code pages are grouped under the ##Code## page and are marked as hidden (so your users don't see them by default). The application entries are created under the ##Data## page. Backward compatibility is preserved so you should still be able to edit existing applications that don't have the new page organization.

25 The application wizard has also been modified to support any characters in the application name. The only remaining requirement for the application name is to not be empty.

Guillaume Delhumeau 1.1 27 == Miscellaneous ==
28
Marius Dumitru Florea 14.1 29 * The breadcrumb tree navigation doesn't show the document translations any more when multilingual is disabled, because navigating to a document translation when multilingual is off doesn't have any effect: the default translation is displayed instead. You can still see the translations in the [[Page Index Tree>>extensions:Extension.Index Application||anchor="HAllDocumentsinatreeview"]] though.
Eduard Moraru 19.1 30 * Template providers can now specify if they create terminal or non-terminal documents. See the [[documentation>>extensions:Extension.Administration Application||anchor="HAdvanced:Creatingterminaldocumentswithtemplateproviders"]] for more information.
Vincent Massol 24.2 31 * The //Template Type// option ("type" class property) of a template provider was removed since it was not used from the start and any existing values have been migrated to use the new "terminal" property. See the [[documentation for more information on the "terminal" property>>extensions:Extension.Administration Application||anchor="HAdvanced:Creatingterminaldocumentswithtemplateproviders"]].
Thomas Mortagne 23.1 32 * Added support for list properties in LDAP user synchronization

90 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.
