  • kupu: the link input field in the link toolbox was changed to be a textarea. In 2.2 releases prior to 2.2 final, the input field changed to a textarea on focus and back to an input field onblur, so long urls where easier to view. This caused confusing 'double clicking' behavior in order to manually add or update a link (first to unfocus, second to update)
  • The formulator lookupwindow field changed to a textarea to address the same concerns as the link toolbox in kupu mentioned above.

It has performance and technical improvements such as functional tests.
