Changes since 2016.02
It's now possible to define ordering criterias for sub-items. It's also possible to set priorities for sub-items. This feature was started with 2016.02 but was not fully completed and finally landed in 2016.04. Doing this, we also simplified the set of criterias available to the editor.
Field category support
Fields can now be assigned to a category from the Content Type management UI, again making it possible to organize fields for editors in relevant categories.
Name pattern support for Relation, Relation List and Selection Field Types
The Relation and Selection Field Types can now be used to generate content names and URL aliases. This improvement comes with improvements to the API and SPI layer, making it easier to use complex field data to generate a title or url slug.
Improved system information admin panel
The system information panel in Platform UI has been improved, and reimplemented in a new package, ezsystems/ez-support-tools. This change will make it easier to add custom panels to the UI, or customize existing ones.
Improved trash management
Items that were trashed can now be restored. Trash can be empty, permanently deleting items in the trash.
The user interface introduced a more contextual right action bar for that purpose.
A global pagelayout template can now be defined using siteaccess aware settings:
This setting will be used by the default content view templates. It is recommended that you also use it in your own templates, so that the site's layout management is centralized. Examples can be found in the eZ Platform demo templates.
Thanks go to Carlos Revillo for the contribution.

Documentation and developer ressources
During the 2016.04 release, we put work into also improving developer resources. Doc.ez.no has been improved continuously throughout the release, and our beginner tutorial for developer as well. We will keep working on those ressources during further releases. Please don't hesitate to send feedback.
To update to this version, follow the Updating eZ Platform guide and use v1.3.0 as version.
