which is a jQuery plugin. All graphs have been rewritten.
- File attachments in tracker and document manager are now stored on the 
filesystem using a common storage API.
- More informations about what is going on. SCM activity (commits) are 
now displayed. New or enhanced widgets are also available on your page 
to follow project activities.
- Code cleanup. Fusionforge get a slimming diet.
- new plugins are available such as captcha integration or webanalytics 
integration. Some are leaving (svncommitemail, svntracker are merged 
into the scmhook plugin).

Behind the scene, old configuration files (i.e local.inc) are not 
supported anymore. Since 5.0, the configuration files are standards 
*.ini files. As usual, migration scripts are provided to migrate what 
needs to be migrated to the new schemes (in this case, for the database 
schema). Still backup your data before any migration.
