XMS Systems Change Log and development notices

Read the XMS Systems Change Log to see the latest changes and what we are working on.

With the recent upgrade to a responsive design things got a bit out of hand with fixes and changes we made to the framework. The result was that the changelog ;became a “nonlog” and nobody really knows what has changed. This is an attempt to get that back on track.
