13 == Flamingo ==
14
15 Following the introduction of the Nested Documents feature, we have made some modifications to the Flamingo skin:
16
17 * For non terminal documents, we have introduced a "Page Administration", where you will find settings that concern the document and its children (it's actually the old space administration behind the scene). But we have also introduced 2 sections for setting rights on these pages:
18 ** a section to set rights for the document only.
19 ** a section to set rights for the document and its children.
20 * For terminal documents, nothing changes, you can change the access rights of the page in the "edit" menu. The only addition is a "Administer Parent" link in the "More actions" menu to administer the parent page (which again is the space administration behind the scene).
21 * The create action has been relooked (with the introduction of the "page type" field) and proposes to import an office document.
22 * A new "children" viewer is now accessible in the "more actions" menu, along with the other viewers.
23 * For Terminal Pages, a new "siblings" viewer is present, which replaces the old "space index" feature.

36 == Solr Search ==
37
38 You can now search for nested documents using the [[Solr Search Application>>extensions:Extension.Solr Search Application]]. The display of the search result location has been updated to support nested documents.
39
40 {{image reference="searchResultLocation.png"/}}
41
42 The "Space" facet has been replaced with a "Location" facet that supports nested documents. This allows you to search in a specific location in the page hierarchy.
43
44 {{image reference="searchLocationFacet.png"/}}
45
46 The "Page" facet has been removed by default because it doesn't bring value in the context of the nested documents: all non-terminal documents have the same name 'WebHome'. The "Wiki" facet is displayed by default only on the main wiki and only if you have multiple wikis.
47
48 == Miscellaneous ==
49
50 * The [[Document Tree Macro>>extensions:Extension.Document Tree Macro]] is now displaying a message when the tree is empty.(((
51 {{image reference="emptyDocTree.png" /}}
52
53 With the new ##showRoot## parameter you can force the document tree to show the actual root node (either the one specified by the ##root## parameter or the default root node).
54 )))
55 * It's now possible create new FAQs in Nested Spaces.
56 * When using the XWiki Jetty distribution, a memory dump is automatically created in XWiki's ##data/## folder when an ##Out Of Memory## error occurs.
57 * The Activity Stream now also displays activity for Nested Spaces.
58 * Skin editor now properly works for a nested skin document

104 == General Notes ==
105
106 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.

153 {{comment}}Eduard @ 7.2RC1:
154 I have found 3 differences in xwiki-platform that have not generated a clirr error, maybe they are leftovers or the clirr report did not catch them for some reason. See https://github.com/xwiki/xwiki-platform/blob/master/xwiki-platform-core/pom.xml#L493:L510{{/comment}}
