Release Notes for 1.3

Smartsite iXperion 1.3 comes with a large number of fixes, enhancements and new features.

Also, two new modules are released: Smartsite Management Information 2.0 and Smartsite iXperion Faceted Search.

Updating existing sites 

Some of the fixes in the 1.3 release require extra care. These fixes potentially introduce functional changes in existing sites.

To maintain full compatibility at the SXML level, you can make Smartsite iXperion revert to pre-1.3 behavior, by using one of the compatibility settings.
