Issues & Tasks
- U4-4748 - Clean up ContentService & MediaService so that any given method that executes performs all of it's CRUD in a single transaction - currently there are several methods that call other transactional methods such as Move (which is a fairly bad one)
- U4-5018 - Update IUnitOfWorkRepository to have return values from all methods to describe changed entities
- U4-5514 - Move language configs to the /Config/Lang folder instead of being buried in the /umbraco/config/lang folder
- U4-6872 - Implement Event Messages for all remaining Services where required - especially the content types so that the UI works with new editors
- U4-8178 - IUserService requires more options for GetAll so we can use SQL to filter the results of GetAll
- U4-8226 - Remove all unused/un-needed webforms files from the Umbraco.Web and Umbraco.Web.UI projects
- U4-8386 - Examine v2 has an issue with WasIndexCreated() which causes an index to rebuild sometimes when a single node is indexed
