h3. Labels / CSH
42 1 Ernesto Baschny
43 4 Ernesto Baschny
We tried hard to stabilize all labels and get the CSH complete. This proved to be a lot more work than expected. Its almost finished, and the translation can already work on the current state without fearing that something dramatical will still change.

45 6 Ernesto Baschny
For the ease of the translators, here are some notes about [[Label changes in 4.5]].

h3. Pagetree
48
49 8 Steffen Kamper
The pagetree was polished, optimized and many bufs were fixed. It's more smooth and very performant.
50
It's fully compatible with workspaces, drag&drop was improved a lot.

h3. Extension Manager
57
58
Many bugfixes are done. See a full list at http://forge.typo3.org/versions/show/758.
59
60
For smaller screens now all is scrollabel. There is also an option to use windows for detail information instead of the row expander, this helps on smaller screens too (You have to reset user settings if you used new EM before).
61
62
In Repository list you now can right click on a row to get all versions displayed, this allows to import an older version of an extension. You can hide the Update / Retrieve icon for repositories with following userTS setting:

<pre>
64 2 Steffen Kamper
mod.tools_em.hideRepositoryUpdate = 1
