12
13 == Flamingo ==
14
15 Following the introduction of the Nested Documents feature, we have made some modifications to the Flamingo skin:
16
17 * The welcome message from the main wiki home page has been updated.
18 * The "Spaces" widget from the wiki dashboard has been replaced with "Pages" which shows the hierarchy of nested pages from that wiki.
19 * 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:
20 ** a section to set rights for the document only.
21 ** a section to set rights for the document and its children.
22 * 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).
23 * The create action has been relooked (with the introduction of the "page type" field) and proposes to import an office document.
24 * A new "children" viewer is now accessible in the "more actions" menu, along with the other viewers.
25 * For Terminal Pages, a new "siblings" viewer is present, which replaces the old "space index" feature.

39 == Solr Search ==
40
41 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.
42
43 {{image reference="searchResultLocation.png"/}}
44
45 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.
46
47 {{image reference="searchLocationFacet.png"/}}
48
49 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.
50
51 == Miscellaneous ==
52
53 * When [[creating, copying or renaming a page>>platform:Features.DocumentLifecycle]] you can now select a top level location from the tree picker (e.g. copy as top level page) even if you have a single wiki (i.e. only the main wiki). You do this by selecting the root of the tree (i.e. the wiki node).
54 * The [[Document Tree Macro>>extensions:Extension.Document Tree Macro]] is now displaying a message when the tree is empty.(((
55 {{image reference="emptyDocTree.png"/}}
56
57 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).
58 )))
59 * A couple of bugs in the [[App Within Minutes Application>>extensions:Extension.App Within Minutes Application]], that were caused by the introduction of the Nested Documents feature, have been fixed.
60 * It's now possible create new FAQs in Nested Spaces.
61 * When using the XWiki Jetty distribution, a memory dump is automatically created in XWiki's ##data/## folder when an ##Out Of Memory## error occurs.
62 * The Activity Stream now also displays activity for Nested Spaces.
63 * Skin editor now properly works for a nested skin document

111 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.

158 {{comment}}Eduard @ 7.2RC1:
159 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}}
