11 [[Full list of issues fixed and Dashboard for 6.1>>http://jira.xwiki.org/secure/Dashboard.jspa?selectPageId=12290]].
12
13 == Experimental Flamingo Skin ==
14
15 * Flamingo skin CSS is now computed at the runtime, using the [[LESS Module>>extensions:Extension.LESS Module]].
16 * Thanks to this, we have introduced a compatibility between this skin and the old color themes:
17 [[[[image:flamingo-default.png||width="32%"]]>>attach:flamingo-default.png]] [[[[image:flamingo-dusk.png||width="32%"]]>>attach:flamingo-dusk.png]] [[[[image:flamingo-mint.png||width="32%"]]>>attach:flamingo-mint.png]] [[[[image:flamingo-ruby.png||width="32%"]]>>attach:flamingo-ruby.png]] [[[[image:flamingo-nocolortheme.png||width="32%"]]>>attach:flamingo-nocolortheme.png]]
18 * A lot of fixes and polishing have been made too.
19
20 == Applications Panel ==
21
22 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:
23 [[[[image:appbar.png||width="32%"]]>>attach:appbar.png]] (on this screenshot you can see the small version on the left, and the normal version on the right).
24
25 == Miscellaneous ==
26
27 <insert misc user stuff and important bug fix descriptions here in a list, when they are too small to warrant a section by themselves - Change the version in the URL below!>
28
29 * [[extensions:Extension.SpaceIndex Macro]] has now a new parameter to sort the document by creation date, modification date, or by name.

31 See the [[full list of JIRA issues>>http://jira.xwiki.org/sr/jira.issueviews:searchrequest-printable/temp/SearchRequest.html?jqlQuery=project+in+%28XCOMMONS%2C+XRENDERING%2C+XWIKI%2C+XE%29+and+status+%3D+Closed+and+resolution+%3D+Fixed+and+fixVersion+%3D+%226.1-milestone-2%22&tempMax=1000]] fixed in this release.
32
33 = For Developers =
34
35 == LESS module ==
36
37 * The [[LESS Module>>extensions:Extension.LESS Module]] is now bundled with XWiki Enterprise.
38 * Some progress have been made on the DefaultLESSSkinFileCache. The cache is now cleared when a skin or a color theme is changed, but only on the concerned wiki.
39 * The LESS Compiler now compress the generated CSS.
40 * A new component has been added to compute a Color Theme compatible with [[extensions:Extension.Color Theme Application]] from a LESS file.
41
42 == Job module improvements ==
43
44 A new ##org.xwiki.job.JobExecutor## component has been introduce to replace ##org.xwiki.job.JobManager## (which is now deprecated). This component adds support for parallel execution of jobs and also support grouping jobs that need to be executed in the same thread.
45
46 See [[extensions:Extension.Job Module]] for more details.

48 == Deprecated and Retired projects ==

50 <description of deprecated and retired projects>
51
52 == Upgrades ==
53
54 The following dependencies have been upgraded:
55
56 * [[Groovy 2.3.2>>http://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XCOMMONS-598]]
57 * [[Official LESS Compiler for Java 1.7.0.1.1>>http://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XWIKI-10437]]
58
59 == Miscellaneous ==
60
61 * xwiki.cfg file properties are now accessible through ##org.xwiki.configuration.ConfigurationSource## component with role hint ##xwikicfg##
62 * Complete refactoring of the [[Resource module>>extensions:Extension.Resource API]]. Note that the Action module has been removed and folded into the new Resource module.
63 * The ##getInstance## methods in the [[Component Script Service>>extensions:Extension.Component Module||anchor="HAccessfromScripts"]] are now public and return ##null## if the Component cannot be looked up. A ##getLastError()## method was also added to get the last exception.
64 * New converter for ##java.lang.refect.Type## which allows converting from String to Type and opposite in Velocity and wiki macros parameters for example.
65 * The wiki manager API always returns a descriptor for the main wiki, and if there is no descriptor document it returns a "virtual" one that can be saved. Basically it now means that if a wiki exists there is always a corresponding descriptor, even for the main wiki.
66 * The "skin" parameter in the URL is now taken into account when generating the links to the skin CSS (see: [[XWIKI-10426>>http://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XWIKI-10426]]).
67 * Filesystem Attachment Storage now allows you to disable cleaning of empty directories on startup since on a large installation this may take considerable time. (see: [[XWIKI-10431>>http://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XWIKI-10431]])

85 == General Notes ==
86
87 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.
