They share the same release notes as they are released together and have the same version.
Marius Dumitru Florea 74.1 7 This milestone release brings more changes to the Flamingo Skin in order to support Nested Documents. The top menu has been replaced by a drawer and the create, copy, rename and delete page actions have been revamped. This release also fixes some Watch List issues related to Nested Documents and provides a new configuration option for the LDAP module. The developers should check out the new job-related REST resources and the support for skins in Nested Spaces.

Guillaume Delhumeau 13.1 13 == Flamingo ==
Guillaume Delhumeau 1.1 14
Vincent Massol 33.2 15 Following the introduction of the Nested Documents feature, we have changed a lot our default Flamingo skin:
Eduard Moraru 34.1 16
Vincent Massol 33.2 17 * The top menu has been removed and replaced by a drawer menu that you can expand by clicking on the top right icon
18 * The add menu has been relocated near the edit one
19 * The L&F of the Add, Edit, and "More Actions" menus has been changed
20 * A lot of actions have been moved to the "More Actions" menu
Marius Dumitru Florea 70.1 21 * The page breadcrumb has suffered some changes:
22 ** it is now also displayed on the wiki home page
Thomas Mortagne 76.1 23 ** the wiki home page is now included when it is part of the current document's hierarchy, i.e. for children and descendants of the wiki home page. See [[XWIKI-12423>>https://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XWIKI-12423]] for more details.
Marius Dumitru Florea 70.1 24 ** the sub-wiki pretty name is included between the home icon and the local page path
Guillaume Delhumeau 41.1 25 * The actions menus (edit, create, more actions) are now available from the rename, copy and delete actions.
Marius Dumitru Florea 68.1 26 * The create, copy and rename page actions have been modified to support nested documents:
27 ** The source and target documents are displayed using the breadcrumb
28 ** The target document can be selected using a document tree picker
29 ** For advanced users there is also the option to specify the target document using some text input fields (location advanced edit mode). This is useful especially if you want to create/move the page under a parent that doesn't exist yet (you cannot use the tree picker in this case because the parent would not be available in the tree).
Guillaume Delhumeau 51.1 30 * The delete action proposes to delete the children of the document.

Thomas Mortagne 27.1 52 == LDAP improvements ==
54 It's now possible to disable subgroups resolution using ##xwiki.authentication.ldap.group_sync_resolve_subgroups## property in ##xwiki.cfg## configuration file. Resolving each member to check if it's a group might be very expensive with big groups so if you know there is no subgroup you should really disable it.
Guillaume Delhumeau 1.1 56 == Miscellaneous ==
Marius Dumitru Florea 29.1 58 * The Navigation panel displays nested documents:(((
Marius Dumitru Florea 30.2 59 {{image reference="navigationpanel.png"/}}
Marius Dumitru Florea 29.1 60 )))
Marius Dumitru Florea 31.1 61 * When renaming or copying a nested document the document title is updated to reflect the new document name if its previous value was equal the old document name. This was happening already for terminal documents. We extended the behaviour to nested documents.
Vincent Massol 74.2 62 * Fixed various issues for several applications bundled in XE (such as WatchList and Annotations), which should now work well with Nested Spaces.
Eduard Moraru 35.2 63 * The Administration mode for spaces and wikis now uses the standard reference-based breadcrumbs instead of the previously custom section-based breadcrumbs.(((
Guillaume Delhumeau 37.1 64 {{image reference="administrationUI-breadcrumbs-standard.png"/}}
Eduard Moraru 35.2 65 )))
Eduard Moraru 36.1 66 * The Administration mode no longer features a select input on the right side for navigation between spaces since that input does no longer scale in the context of Nested Spaces. Thus, the breadcrumbs should be used instead and the future UI improvements that will soon become available in this direction.
Vincent Massol 54.1 67 * It's now possible to create Skins in Nested Spaces.
Eduard Moraru 56.1 68 * Changed the exception message displayed when a script execution fails due to lack of rights to make it clearer that it's not a problem with the current user, but with the script.

117 = Backward Compatibility and Migration Notes =
119 == General Notes ==
121 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.
