13 == New Homepage ==
14
15 We replaced the Dashboard application from the main Homepage and added introductory steps as wiki syntax. This change will make it simpler for new users to edit the Homepage content, while also benefiting from some basic help concepts. The left panels area also showcases now the 'Navigation' panel, while the right panels area contain a 'Need Help?' panel.

18 == Tour for Homepage ==
19
20 A [[tour>>extensions:Extension.Tour Application]] has been created to present the UI elements existing on the Main.WebHome page. Every user will be guided through this tour in order to become familiar with XWiki.

33 == Application Index ==
34
35 We removed some applications from the AppBar (like Scheduler, Invitation, Panels, etc.) with the intention to simplify the interface and promote a smaller number of applications inside the AppBar panel. In order for the applications to still be discoverable, we added in the Drawer an [[Application Index>>extensions:Extension.Application Index Application]].

98 == General Notes ==
99
100 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.
