New and Noteworthy (since XWiki 6.1 Milestone 1)

Full list of issues fixed and Dashboard for 6.1.

Experimental Flamingo Skin

  • Flamingo skin CSS is now computed at the runtime, using the LESS Module.
  • Thanks to this, we have introduced a compatibility between this skin and the old color themes:

Applications Panel

The applications panel has been modified to adapt itself to the panel column width. The design is different when the size is small, to look closer to a "dock" bar:

General Notes

When upgrading make sure you compare your xwiki.cfg, and web.xml files with the newest version since some configuration parameters may have been modified or added. Note that you should add so that XWiki will attempt to automatically migrate your current database to the new schema. Make sure you backup your Database before doing anything.
