5 This is the release notes for [[XWiki Commons>>]], [[XWiki Rendering>>]], [[XWiki Platform>>]] and [[XWiki Enterprise>>]]. They share the same release notes as they are released together and have the same version.
7 This is a bug fix release with lots of issues fixed to stabilize the recent Flamingo skin.
9 {{error}}
10 We've discovered an [[issue with IE9 related to cursor position when editing in the WYSIWYG editor and using the Flamingo skin>>]]. If you're using IE9 and Flamingo you may want to postpone any upgrade to 6.2.3 (or after).
12 Also, we have discovered some issues related to the usage of the same skin (eg: xwiki:XWiki.DefaultSkin) in different wikis ([[XWIKI-11304>>]], [[XWIKI-11300>>]] and [[XWIKI-11302>>]]). If you are concerned by this use-case, you should wait for the upcoming 6.2.3 version.

21 {{info}}
22 The Flamingo skin was introduced as experimental in XWiki 6.0 & 6.1 and has been deemed usable in XWiki 6.2. However we're still tuning details. It happens that we did not all agree on the location of the "Add" button (some wanted it inside the content, next to the "Edit" buttons and others wanted it back at the top - You can [[follow the discussion here>>]] if you're interested ;)). Thus we've decided for the moment to put it back at the top where it was in the Colibri skin in order to not force our users to learn a new location for the moment. This is still a discussion in progress and if you have inputs and preferences please do not hesitate to let us know on the [[XWiki Users Mailing List>>dev:Community.MailingLists]] or on the [[related Issue>>]]. Thanks!

28 * When you click on the 'add' button, the order of the choices have been inverted, to propose to create a page first, then a space, and finally a wiki:(((
