Require SQL Server 2008 R2 or SQL Server 2012 and their corresponding SQL Server Express editions [SQL 2K8 Not supported] Sitecore is deprecating support for running Sitecore under IIS application pools configured to use Classic pipeline mode.

Whats improved?
IFilter support DataSource improvements Datasource rendering parameters stored in GUID instead of path Improved logging for indexing and search few more log files to analyze! Renderings and layouts clear index on update Changes around the list of supported browsers: IE 8, 9 + 10 (IE 7 is no longer supported) Chrome 25 and later Firefox 17 and later Apple Safari 6 for Mac OS (Apple Safari for Windows is no longer supported by Apple) Troubleshooting patch info in showconfig.aspx

Q and A

The test of a good teacher is not how many questions he can ask his pupils that they will answer readily, but how many questions he inspires them to ask him which he finds it hard to answer.
