====Known Issues==
All known issues are tracked in our (( Bug Tracker.))
  1. To use Captcha, you must ensure that the session settings in **freecap.php** do not differ from the default values or your config settings, else Captcha can't pass its values to the session. In the following link you find a workaround:
    * ((/Dev/Release/R5.0/CaptchaAndSession Fixing Captcha And Session))
  2. ((bugs:405 toc action does not recognize include page structure))
  3. broken POST & reset of Session in menu section via user settings which requires you to logout and login to refresh the changed bookmarks / menu
    * HOTFIX: add the ##""{{menu}}""## action into a seperate page and edit the menu items / bookmarks there
  1. !!**Not compatible with PHP 5.4!**!! - see bugs:422
