We have dropped the pseudo scroll bar in favor of a pagination mechanism. Columns are now sortable, which allows for example to sort the document or attachment index by date (ascending or descending).

126 126  This Live Table as been made a reusable component, available for applications developers to bind to their application business data in a breathe (just one velocity macro call is enough to create such a table). Read more in the JavaScript improvement section of the release notes, or checking out the live table [developer documentation page>platform:DevGuide.LiveTable], that includes a video introducing the table capabilities.

138 +1.1.1.1 Multiple ~~attachment~~ upload in one request
139 +Uploading more than one file at once is difficult in web interfaces, since it is impossible to select more than one file in the dialog provided by the browser. It was even more difficult in XWiki, since the user had to scroll down to the attachment area, expand the upload form, browse for a file, submit, wait a lot for the file to be uploaded, and then go back and do all the steps again, several times. We made things a bit easier, by allowing to insert all the wanted files in the form (as distinct file input field), then submit only once.
140 +
141 +A first improvement is that the upload form is now expanded by default. You will notice the ~~Add another file~~ and the red ~~X~~ buttons. You can add as many fields as you like (keeping in mind that the wiki has a limit on the total size of the upload data), and you can later remove any field wrongly selected. Pressing the ~~Cancel~~ button will restore the form to its initial state, with only one empty file field.

184 184  A feature frequently asked for is the ability to autosave documents, so that when a problem occurs after a long editing session, at least all but the most recent changes should be recovered. While more changes in the underlying structure of XWiki are needed in order to implement it properly, for the moment we have a preliminary implementation for this feature.
