32 * Put a link to the product home page in the footer by default
33 * Template providers that are restricted to certain pages are now also available on the children of those pages.
34 * The ##xwiki.usedefaultweb## parameter from ##xwiki.cfg## has been removed. See below.
35 * Job module does not validate stored status at startup. This might improve a lot the startup time when there is a lot of status. Also there seems to still be use cases where XStream get lost in edge case when parsing, this was blocking the whole XWiki startup for a very long time.

90 When upgrading make sure you compare your ##xwiki.cfg##, ##xwiki.properties## and ##web.xml## files with the newest version since some configuration parameters may have been modified or added. Note that you should add ##xwiki.store.migration=1## so that XWiki will attempt to automatically migrate your current database to the new schema. Make sure you backup your Database before doing anything.
