This is the release notes for XWiki Commons, XWiki Rendering, XWiki Platform and XWiki Enterprise. They share the same release notes as they are released together and have the same version.

This is our last stabilization branch for the XWiki 7.x Cycle. It brings polishing and stabilization for the Nested Pages feature and the changes in UI that resulted from it. It also introduce a new API to indicate how long a cache entry to stay in the cache (since it was inserted in the cache).

New and Noteworthy (since XWiki 7.4 Milestone 1)

Full list of issues fixed and Dashboard for 7.4.


  • The "annotations" button in the "More Actions" menu has been moved in the same menu but with other actions and renamed "Annotate".

For Developers

New lifespan LRU Cache setup

It's now possible to define the maximum time to live since the entry is put in the cache. It used to be possible to set it only since the last time the value was used.

// Configure cache eviction policy
LRUEvictionConfiguration lru = new LRUEvictionConfiguration();
// Set maximum size of the cache as 1000 entries
// Set the maximum time to live since when the entry is used to 1 hour
// Set the maximum time to live since when the entry is put in the cache to 1 hour

Cache Macro and Rendering Cache are now based on this behavior.
