Improved date formatting
Collabtive 0.7.5 has a newly implemented formatting routine for the datepicker.
This makes much better configurability of date formats possible.
The date format can be configured in Administration -> System Administration
Please see the PHP date docs for a list of supported variables http://php.net/manual/en/function.date.php.

Improved performance
Optimized asynchronous queries to check for new chat messages and onlinelist updates when idle (i.e. when not browsing through collabtive). It uses a decay mechanism now to reduce the number of ajax requests to the server. This should reduce DB utilisation.
