40 40  
42 +After the improvements to the object and class editors introduced in 1.8 and 2.4, the wiki and WYSIWYG editors also see some enhancements in this release, bringing in some of the proposed changes from [[an older proposal>>http://incubator.myxwiki.org/xwiki/bin/Improvements/ImprovedEdit]], with some additional improvements. Specifically:
41 41  
44 +* A new label for the content area in the wiki editor:(((

46 +)))
47 +* A more descriptive label for the version summary field
48 +* Better positioning of the "minor edit" option
49 +* Better positioning and display of the "autosave" option(((

53 +== Preliminary optional accessibility stylesheet ==
54 +
55 +Moving further on the quest for better accessibility in the XWiki platform, we introduced a preliminary stylesheet which makes the skin slightly more accessible to people with visual disabilities: bigger fonts by default, and underlined links to make them more easily distinguished by colorblind people. This stylesheet can either be activated globally in a wiki, or individually from each user's preferences.

65 +== More consistent use of user avatars ==
66 +
67 +Avatars now come in three default sizes:
68 +
69 +* small avatars, 30px wide, used in secondary actions and where there's very little space available
70 +* medium avatars, 50px wide, the preferred and most frequent display option for avatars
71 +* large avatars,120px wide, to be used where a large version of the avatar must be displayed (for example in the user profile)
72 +
73 +Accordingly, the wiki dashboard has been changed to use the medium avatars, and as a new feature user avatars are displayed in the comments area.
74 +
75 +image:ReleaseNotesXWikiEnterprise20M1@comment-avatars.png
76 +
77 +Four new velocity macros have been added for making it easier to display avatars:
78 +
79 +* ###smallUserAvatar('XWiki.username')##
80 +* ###mediumUserAvatar('XWiki.username')##
81 +* ###largeUserAvatar('XWiki.username')##
82 +* ###resizedUserAvatar('XWiki.username', 100)## which allows resizing an avatar to a custom size
83 +
84 +User avatars are also displayed in annotations.
