Update: Most important changes
Here's a lost of the most significant changes, for full details, see the "release page":/products/plone/releases/2.1.3
- Kupu has received a major overhaul:
- Can now insert pre-defined thumbnails directly from the image insertion dialog - no more resizing images!
- Better icons and stripped away irrelevant options
- Added "pullquote" and "callout" layout classes, renamed "formatted" label to "literal", added the "discreet" from Plone.
- Improved tool ordering (growing elements like the text format selector should be at the end, since they displace all the other icons when they change if not)
- Fixed stupid bug in Mozilla by explicitly setting the link styling inside Kupu
- Made all images load from an absolute URL to improve caching
- CSS elements have been moved to make it easier to skin Plone with DIYPloneStyle
- Built-in support for rounded corners
- New button in the ZMI to find and catalog content and content only (useful if you erroneously clear the catalog and need to rebuild it)
- Lots of fixes for Right-to-Left languages like Arabic, Hebrew and Farsi
- Re-added 'toPortalTime' method - even if it is deprecated, it was removed in a minor release (and broke some add-on products), and that shouldn't happen. This will disappear in Plone 2.5, though - so make sure your third-party products use 'toLocalizedTime' instead.
- Lots of cleanups in the navigation tree code. NOTE: If you have a customized navigation tree, you might have to re-customize it.
- Uses full name in comments now
- Added relaxed mode to 'normalizeString' that will be used to not make file names lowercase on upload.
- Username in personal bar now points to the profile, and gives you an interface to edit your profile.
- Introduced a new class "tile" to use in the portlets. The previous portlet code implicitly assumed that all links would be block-level, which is not a good thing. This should have minimal impact on old portlets, but if you want the block-level behaviour and stay compatible with older portlet code too, just add class="tile" to your links.
