12
13 == Changes in the UI ==
14
15 * The default logo is now optimized for "Retina" screens, and can be scaled to any dimensions since it's a vectorial image.
16 * The Information tab, at the bottom of each page, does not display the parent and the children of the current page anymore. Since this information is available both in the breadcrumb and in the children viewer, they were redundant and have been removed.(((

19 * The search and the notification icons have been inverted. The new order looks more natural when the search bar is expanded.(((

28 = For Developers =
29
30 == Miscellaneous ==
31
32 * The top level Commons POM now performs some checks on the POMs that have it as parent; for example it checks that non core POMs don't use the "XWiki Development Team" in the developers section so that non-core Extensions deployed on extensions.xwiki.org don't appear as developed by the XWiki Development Team.
33 * You can now disable the default [[Live Table>>extensions:Extension.Livetable Macro]] query filters by passing the empty string as the value of the ##queryFilters## parameter.

51 == General Notes ==
52
53 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.
