Version 2.1.2

Released: May 20, 2016

This is a bugfix release and all users are encouraged to upgrade.


Language list sorting

The document language list and the user locale profile language list are now sorted to make it easier to find the desired language.

Fixed the metadata lookup options: {{ users }} and {{ groups }}

When configuring metadata type lookup options the {{ users }} and {{ groups }} special options can be used to display a list of users or a list of groups. These options where producing a list in the wrong format and were updated.
