35 )))
36 * The [[Gadget's title>>extensions:Extension.Dashboard Macro||anchor="HGadget27stitile"]] has now a default value which is internationalized.
37 * Put a link to the product home page in the footer by default
38 * Template providers that are restricted to certain pages are now also available on the children of those pages.
39 * The [[Document Tree Macro>>extensions:Extension.Document Tree Macro||anchor="HParameters"]] has a new parameter to limit the number of child nodes displayed when a parent node is expanded for the first time.
40 * The ##xwiki.usedefaultweb## parameter from ##xwiki.cfg## has been removed. See below.
41 * Job module does not validate stored status at startup. This might improve a lot the startup time when there is a lot of status. Also there seems to still be use cases where XStream get lost in edge case when parsing, this was blocking the whole XWiki startup for a very long time.

96 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.
