This release of Foswiki comes with quite some new features and more than 160 crunched bugs relative to the previous release. Here are some highlights:
Preference variables can take parameters now. This allows to build very powerful macro shortcuts to ease the life of your content editors.
JQueryPlugin had a major release in its own allowing new possibilities for smart user interaction for the application developer.
There’s a new custom-made jQuery-ui theme providing a decent look&feel for enterprise use.
SpreadSheetPlugin has been enhanced with new functions.
Significant enhancements were made to the Foswiki email implementation. These changes increase compatibility with email services like Google’s gmail, adding support for SMTP over SSL as well as S/MIME signed mail.
