13 == Flamingo ==
14
15 Following the introduction of the Nested Documents feature, we have changed a lot our default Flamingo skin:
16
17 * The top menu has been removed and replaced by a drawer menu that you can expand by clicking on the top right icon
18 * The add menu has been relocated near the edit one
19 * The L&F of the Add, Edit, and "More Actions" menus has been changed
20 * A lot of actions have been moved to the "More Actions" menu
21 * The Breadcrumb is now also displayed for the home page
22 * The Breadcrumb now also displays the home page (instead of hiding it as it used to) if it is part of the current document's hierarchy. See [[XWIKI-12423>>http://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XWIKI-12423]] for more details.
23 * The actions menus (edit, create, more actions) are now available from the rename, copy and delete actions.
24 * The delete action proposes to delete the children of the document.

40 == LDAP improvements ==
41
42 It's now possible to disable subgroups resolution using ##xwiki.authentication.ldap.group_sync_resolve_subgroups## property in ##xwiki.cfg## configuration file. Resolving each member to check if it's a group might be very expensive with big groups so if you know there is no subgroup you should really disable it.
43
44 == Miscellaneous ==
45
46 * The Navigation panel displays nested documents:(((
47 {{image reference="navigationpanel.png"/}}
48 )))
49 * When renaming or copying a nested document the document title is updated to reflect the new document name if its previous value was equal the old document name. This was happening already for terminal documents. We extended the behaviour to nested documents.
50 * Fixed various issues for the WatchList application which should now work well with Nested Spaces
51 * The Administration mode for spaces and wikis now uses the standard reference-based breadcrumbs instead of the previously custom section-based breadcrumbs.(((
52 {{image reference="administrationUI-breadcrumbs-standard.png"/}}
53 )))
54 * The Administration mode no longer features a select input on the right side for navigation between spaces since that input does no longer scale in the context of Nested Spaces. Thus, the breadcrumbs should be used instead and the future UI improvements that will soon become available in this direction.
55 * It's now possible to create Skins in Nested Spaces.
56 * Changed the exception message displayed when a script execution fails due to lack of rights to make it clearer that it's not a problem with the current user, but with the script.

68

88 * You can see the children and backlinks of any document with the new parameters ##?xpage=children## and ##?xpage=backlinks## to add to the document URL. To get the children according to the parent/child mechanism, you can use ##?xpage=children&hierarchy=parentchild##.

109 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.
