63 * Added an edit button to easily change the default Welcome message that is displayed on the homepage. Users have reportedly been struggling with this task for a while now and, until we come up with a new format for the homepage, this is the solution we have proposed to make things easier.(((

Note that you should add ##xwiki.store.migration=1## so that XWiki will attempt to automatically migrate your current database to the new schema.
