This release captures more work towards transitioning the authoring experience away from the "Classic UI" to the "Touch UI" editing tools. This will allow authors to leverage the newest and best features within AEM that Adobe has available for content creation.

Important bug fixes related to some of the authoring components are included in this release. These fixes should help make authoring a smoother experience.

In alignment with our goal to keep the AEM platform current, an upgrade from AEM 6.3.0 to AEM 6.3.2 was performed. This article from Adobe explains the benefits of this upgrade: "What's included in AEM 6.3.2?" Essentially the upgrade provides more stability, addresses platform-level bugs, and implements important "housekeeping."

Lastly, some important fine-tuning adjustments to the system were made that improve the performance reliability and speed when an author performs searches in the authoring-environment such as searching for users or groups, or searching for pages, or performing asset deletion operations.
