Release notes

High level feature additions (see specific issues below):

- 1st round of performance & scalability improvements from running XHProf on Commons
- The ability to chose a color palette for your site
- The Commons Polls feature
- Improved email notifications and notification management UI
- Extensive improvements to the Commons Origins theme (still in progress)
- Improvements to the Commons installer based on usability testing
- Extensive bug fixes

Important note for sites upgrading from 7.x-3.0-beta1

A handful of architectural changes were necessary in the move from Beta1 to Beta2. As a result, sites upgrading from Beta1 to Beta 2 must first:

1) Uninstall the Commons Events module and ensure that the Event content type and related fields are removed from the site.
2) Delete the "modules" directory inside of profiles/commons/modules

You can then safely overwrite your existing Commons Beta1 installation with Beta2. These additional steps for upgrading users are necessary because of the change from the Aloha to the CKeditor project, as well as changes in field machine names and types in the Commons Events feature.

These types of structural changes and additional upgrade steps are not anticipated in future versions of Commons.
