    Please Note:

    - Setting default Folder Tree Layout
    OX introduced a new layout for the folder tree. This allows the user to decide, if he wants to have a user friendly simplified way to display the folder tree, or if he wants to work with the expert tree containing all modules and folders in one combined tree. In OX versions prior 6.18.1 only the expert tree was available. With the final launch, Open-Xchange will provide a plug-in to define the folder tree layout only during the first login with 6.18.2. Further information at the Release Notes.

    - New Panel Design
    The new panel is more streamlined, modern and clearly structured. The most frequently used functions are just a fingertip away. As default they are shown as increased icons. Thanks to this new structure and the increased main icons the functions are more clearly visible and can be recognized at a glance. The panel can be expanded or collapsed per module. That's extremely helpful, as you might want to leave it expanded for a module, the functions you frequently need and leave it collapsed for other modules that you do not use extensively.

    - New Icon Set for more Flexibility
    The new release v6.18.2 provides users with a complete technical redesigned icon set for the user interface. All icons are available as vector graphic to provide an improved theme-ability of the Open-Xchange user interface. Additionally, it was necessary for the new convenient panel design, to create new icons with different size. With the new icon set, the default and the "Light Breeze" theme will be provided with these new icons. Customers are still able to provide their own icons for each theme if they want to. If you have added your own icons/theme, please check your user interface after the update. Maybe it is necessary to re-create your own icons or to add new one.
