> Important changes for Hippo CMS end-users
> ----------------------------------------------------------------
> The following changes impact the way users work with Hippo. We  
> recommend
> that you inform your end-users about the following changes when  
> upgrading
> from 7.0 to 7.1:
>
> Folder actions
> The folder actions (Add new document and Add, Rename, Delete, Order  
> Folder)
> are now available as a context menu in the foldertree. In Hippo CMS  
> 7.0, folder
> actions where located in a dropdown commonly referred to as the  
> "Choose one"
> dropdown. This dropdown was situated above the document listing.  
> Based on
> end user feedback, we moved the folder actions into the folder tree.
> The menu is visible when hovering over a folder in the folder tree.  
> Click on the
> dropdown icon and... Tadaa! There's your menu.
> See the documentation on how the new Folder Action Menu works:
> http://www.onehippo.org/cms7/delve_into/user/contributors/concepts/folder_action_menu.html
>
> Improved Workflow Toolbar
> The workflow toolbar now groups document and publication actions in a
> dropdown menu right under the currently selected tab in review mode.  
> See
> the documentation for screenshots:
> http://www.onehippo.org/cms7/delve_into/user/contributors/concepts/review_mode.html
>
> Improvements
> ----------------------------------------------------------------
> - User interaction improvements
> - Tab handling: tabs now have a close button and a separate save  
> button.
> - Also, a new tab now always open on the left side (moving the other  
> tabs to
> the right), and a new review tab will now stay open so you can have
> multiple documents open in review mode
> (see http://www.onehippo.org/cms7/delve_into/user/contributors/concepts/review_mode.html)
> - HTML Editor: fixed a number of Xinha issues
> - Workflow toolbar now groups document and publication actions in a
> dropdown menu
> - Folder actions are now available as a context menu in the  
> foldertree, see
> the documentation for more information:
> http://www.onehippo.org/cms7/delve_into/user/contributors/concepts/folder_action_menu.html
> - The dialog "OK" button now behaves like a proper OK button! No more
> doubleclicks needed :)
> - Small esthetical improvements: icons, colors, etc
> - Observations: a new plugin communication mechanism has been
> introduced that replaces the old inter-plugin "jcr flush" broadcast.
> A plugin can now register itself as an observer for a piece of data
> (the observable) and will receive events when another plugin makes a
> change to that data.  Modifications that have been made in other
> sessions are visible in the same way, transparent to the plugin.
> For a demo of this functionality, open the CMS in two browser windows.
> Changes in one window will appear (after a save) automatically in the
> other (yay!)
> - Browser compatibility improvements. Hippo CMS 7.1 now works on
> IE 6, 7, Firefox 3 and Google Chrome.
> We have spent a lot of time to make sure Internet Explorer 6 behaves
> correctly, although there are still some known issues with rendering.
> - Improved stability
> - Fixed thrown exceptions
> - Fixed workflow cycle issues
> - Fixed deadlocks
> - Multi-user stability has been improved significantly
> - Fixed missing Dutch translations
> - Improved performance
>
> What didn't make it into the release?
> ----------------------------------------------------------------
> - SPI implementation to improve performance when running in an
> environment where the CMS / Repository and website run in separate
> VM's
> - We decided to focus on stability, multi-user support, usability and
>   performance
> - On an architectural level, a lot of time has been spent preparing  
> the code
>   base for the upcoming SPI layer
>
> Demo
> ----------------------------------------------------------------
> To see the demo as a stand-alone download (including Jetty) at the
> following location:
> http://repository.hippocms.org/maven2/org/hippoecm/hippo-ecm-quickstart-bin/2.06.06/hippo-ecm-quickstart-bin-2.06.06.zip
>
> or if you want to deploy the CMS application as a WARin an
> application container:
> http://repository.hippocms.org/maven2/org/hippoecm/hippo-ecm-quickstart-war/2.06.06/hippo-ecm-quickstart-war-2.06.06.war

> 2. Hippo Site Toolkit 2.03.09
> =============================
> The Hippo Site Toolkit 2 (HST2) is a set of tools that enables a  
> developer
> to build websites by providing modular component based interaction
> and processing of any resources. URL mapping and link rewriting is
> handled for you. There is a clear separation between behavior (plain
> Java HstComponents), content (from Hippo Repository) and
> presentation (JSP, Velocity, Freemarker etc.)
> Also, by default, you'll have a preview and live environment of your  
> website.
>
> HST2 provides a seamless portal integration and a SpringMVC bridge.
> Writing a Component for a website is the same as writing a component
> for a portlet.
>
> Demo
> ----------------------------------------------------------------

> http://repository.hippocms.org/maven2/org/onehippo/ecm/hst/demosuite/hst-demosuite-site/2.03.09/hst-demosuite-site-2.03.09.war
