Backward Compatibility breaks in this release:

  • HTML Overrides will break: A lot of the HTML in this release has been optimized and rewritten introducing structural changes and new elements on most of the pages. Any overrides you have done should be reviewed and redone for the extension to work correctly and to get the full benefit of new features. To see the new UI you need to remove your overrides.
