+ When creating an issue rule it is now not only possible to add it as an action button but also to add an issue template to the button. This means that the issue will be copied or moved and that a new issue template will be used to decide which field and information should be used. Read more about issue templates here
+ The reporter drop-down on issue rules and alerts has been replaced with a label and icon: "Choose ". This icon and functionality has also been included in the field "Created by" as well as custom issue fields of type "User".

+ The grid on the top right of the CI tree in the CMDB supports the option of having more than 100000 items in the cmdb. By default the system shows 100 items but the user can choose between displaying 50, 100, 200, 500 and 1000 items and the system remembers the option latest chosen.

This means that if copying a project with 4 working days and starting the new project on a thursday, it will not count the weekend and therefore the project will have it's deadline on tuesday rather than sunday. A project can therefore never have it's end date on a weekend.
