     9New features: 
     10* Webclient: the user can create custom role types (#680).

     12Plugin Development Framework: 
     13* **Service Injection**. New `@Inject` annotation (**#695**). 
     14* **Transactions by Annotation**. New `@Transactional` annotation (**#698**). 
     15* `directives` parameter removed from all APIs (**#697**). 
     16* `clientState` parameter removed from all APIs (**#696**). 
     17* `fetchComposite` parameter removed from most APIs (**#699**).

     21Bug fixes: 
     22* When an error occurs very early in the plugin's starting phase that error is logged and the plugin is not retried to start endlessly (#693). 
     23* Errors like `NoClassDefFoundError` are not thrown through the OSGi container. The phenomenon of "swallowed" exceptions and endlessly retried plugin starts is eliminated once and for all (#693). 
     24* When an error occurs while event handling (e.g. `NoSuchMethodError` or `AbstractMethodError`) the log is more informative (#693).
