This release integrates CKEditor as the default WYSIWYG content editor. It also features a redesigned default homepage, a tour on the home page to describe the XWiki user interface to newcomers, new default templates, a new application index in the drawer and a new administration UI to help manage available syntaxes. There are also minor improvements to the template providers, the Flamingo skin and Ratings. For developers, we have Livetable macro improvements and a long overdue change of behavior for the getRenderedContent() method.
