Guillaume Delhumeau 3.1 13 == Flamingo ==
Marius Dumitru Florea 1.1 14
Guillaume Delhumeau 3.1 15 Following the introduction of the Nested Documents feature, we have made some modifications to the Flamingo skin:
Marius Dumitru Florea 1.1 16
Guillaume Delhumeau 9.1 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:
Guillaume Delhumeau 10.1 18 ** a section to set rights for the document only.
19 ** a section to set rights for the document and its children.
Guillaume Delhumeau 3.1 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).
Guillaume Delhumeau 25.1 21 * The create action has been relooked (with the introduction of the "page type" field) and proposes to import an office document.
Guillaume Delhumeau 28.1 22 * A new "children" viewer is now accessible in the "more actions" menu, along with the other viewers.
Vincent Massol 34.2 23 * For Terminal Pages, a new "siblings" viewer is present, which replaces the old "space index" feature.

Marius Dumitru Florea 40.1 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
Marius Dumitru Florea 43.1 40 {{image reference="searchResultLocation.png"/}}
Marius Dumitru Florea 40.1 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
Marius Dumitru Florea 43.1 44 {{image reference="searchLocationFacet.png"/}}
Marius Dumitru Florea 40.1 45
Marius Dumitru Florea 43.2 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.
Marius Dumitru Florea 43.1 47
Marius Dumitru Florea 1.1 48 == Miscellaneous ==
49
Marius Dumitru Florea 47.2 50 * 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).
Marius Dumitru Florea 44.1 51 * The [[Document Tree Macro>>extensions:Extension.Document Tree Macro]] is now displaying a message when the tree is empty.(((
Marius Dumitru Florea 47.2 52 {{image reference="emptyDocTree.png"/}}
Marius Dumitru Florea 44.1 53
54 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).
55 )))
Marius Dumitru Florea 46.1 56 * 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.
Vincent Massol 13.1 57 * It's now possible create new FAQs in Nested Spaces.
Vincent Massol 45.3 58 * When using the XWiki Jetty distribution, a memory dump is automatically created in XWiki's ##data/## folder when an ##Out Of Memory## error occurs.
Eduard Moraru 33.1 59 * The Activity Stream now also displays activity for Nested Spaces.
Thomas Mortagne 39.1 60 * Skin editor now properly works for a nested skin document

108 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.

155 {{comment}}Eduard @ 7.2RC1:
Eduard Moraru 43.4 156 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}}
