8 1.1 Changes since XWiki Enterprise 1.6
9
10 1.1.1 1. New Rendering improvements
11
12 * XWiki Syntax 2.0 improvements:
13 ** *Allow wiki syntax inside links*. Example of an image link: {code:none}[[image:Space.Page@my.png>>reference]]{code}
14 ** *New syntax for tables*. Example: {code:none}|= row1 |= row2
15 | cell1 | cell2
16 {code}

21 * New Macros:
22 ** *[Code macro>extensions:Extension.Code Macro]* (experimental). Allows to perform syntax highlighting of the content. Only supports HTML, XML and PHP for the moment. Example: {code}
23 {{code language="xml"}}
24 <hello>
25 <world>Cool!</world>
26 </hello>
27 {{/code}}
28 {code}
29 ** *[Script macro>extensions:Extension.Script Macro]*. The new script macros add the ability to use any scripting language supporting JSR-223. For now the default XWiki distribution comes with only a Groovy 1.6 support but it easy to add support for other language (like ruby, python, etc.) simply by adding the corresponding engine and implementation. See https://scripting.dev.java.net/.\\\\To use the new script macro: {code}
30 {{script language="groovy"}}
31 println "Hello World"
32 {{/script}}
33 {code} or you can also use the Groovy macro alias: {code}
34 {{groovy}}
35 println "Hello World"
36 {{/groovy}}
37 {code}
38 ** *[Box macro>extensions:Extension.Box Macro]*. This macro allow to put content in a visual container. Example: {code}
39 {{box}}
40 ==some==
41 * wiki
42 * content
43 {{/box}}
44 {code}

92
93 #warning("If you're running in a multiwiki setup you'll also need to define the property <tt>xwiki.store.migration.databases=all</tt> to your <tt>xwiki.cfg</tt> file or explicitely name all databases to be migrated as in <tt>xwiki.store.migration.databases=db1,db2,...</tt>.")
94

96
97 #warning("Always make sure you compare your <tt>xwiki.cfg</tt> file with the newest version since some configuration parameters were added. Of note, you should add <tt>xwiki.store.migration=1</tt> so that XWiki will attempt to automatically migrate your current database to the new schema. Make sure you backup your Database before doing anything.")
