The Hippo ECM team has last friday tagged milestone M6.3 of its suite..

This milestone had as main focus the inclusion of an image gallery.
Additionally many bugs and usability issues have been resolved.  This includes
in no particular order (the full and more complete listing is below):

- Complete styling upgrade;
- Editing improvements no more superfluous red crosses;
- Editing modeling bug fixes leading to ReferentialIntegrityException and
  ConstraintViolationExceptions, scrambling of field boxes, adding and
  removing fields more robust;
- Workflow more consistency displayed; categories merged where relevant,
  renaming, single entry for deleting items, descriptions in dialogs;
- After deleting folder select folder from which folder was deleted;
- Workflow of containing folder also available when focus on document;
- Publishing document will correctly change the state of a document, same for
  editing a published document which resolves issues that involve not being
  able to perform a legal workflow step;
- Lot of visual useability, various textual changes, hourglass while waiting,
  renaming actions in remodeling steps;
- Correct numbering on paging a documents listing, remove less used
- Timeouts on session, especially login screen more gracefully handled.
- Usage of hippo:resource to allow resources in virtual trees, split
  configuration types of CMS and repository more cleanly;
- Importing improvements to allow references by path rather than by uuid,
  merging, overriding, better reporting of illegal content;
- Scaling of HTML boxes while editing, scaling of foldertree, YUI layout

All artifacts for this milestone are available on our maven2 repository:
Amongst which an EAR or WAR which can immediately be deployed in containers
such as Glassfish or Tomcat.  For the WAR use the context root /cms:
