5 This is the release notes for [[XWiki Commons>>http://commons.xwiki.org]], [[XWiki Rendering>>http://rendering.xwiki.org]], [[XWiki Platform>>http://platform.xwiki.org]] and [[XWiki Enterprise>>http://enterprise.xwiki.org]]. They share the same release notes as they are released together and have the same version.

7 The highlights of this release are the new page type filter from the Create Page form and the new configuration section for the CKEditor. Changing the supported languages from the administration has been made easier with the new language picker. Ordering the Application panel items is now possible with simple drag & drop. Sub-wiki initialization is now asynchronous. As usual the release also includes many bug fixes and smaller improvements.

50 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.
