5 This is the release notes for [[XWiki Commons>>http://commons.xwiki.org]], [[XWiki Rendering>>http://rendering.xwiki.org]], [[XWiki Platform>>http://platform.xwiki.org]] and [[XWiki Enterprise>>http://enterprise.xwiki.org]]. They share the same release notes as they are released together and have the same version.
6
7 This release candidate includes a couple of bug fixes and a few dependency upgrades, as well as some improvements related to Nested Pages. The extension developers should check the new UI extension points available for the top menu.

9 = New and Noteworthy (since XWiki 7.3M2) =

11 [[Full list of issues fixed and Dashboard for 7.3>>https://jira.xwiki.org/secure/Dashboard.jspa?selectPageId=13500]].
12
13 == Flamingo ==
14
15 * The delele UI now uses the 'title' and 'location' columns to list the children that may be affected by the delete action:(((

17 )))
18
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.
22
23 {{image reference="appStructure.png"/}}
24
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.
26
27 == Miscellaneous ==
28
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.
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.
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"]].
32 * Added support for list properties in LDAP user synchronization

88 == General Notes ==
89
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.
