The plugin manager gets a new compact design, and only two states : a plugin is active or inactive (this makes plugin management much simpler)

Plugin Piwigo Auto Upgrade was integrated into Piwigo core as a standard feature

http://piwigo.org/forum/showimage.php?pid=122461&filename=piwigo-2.3-regenerate-websize-processing.png

Ability to regenerate websize and thumbnails was added in Piwigo core. When regenerating a websize, by default, Piwigo will create a new websize from the HD (high definition) version of your photo. If no HD is available and if the current websize is bigger than resize dimensions, Piwigo will move it as HD and create a downsized websize photo from it.

3) Start to beta test
