10 +== User Interface ==
11 +
12 +=== Colibri skin ===
13 +
14 +XWiki 2.0 introduces a new, lightweight, easily customizable skin. The main goal of the Colibri skin is to provide the proper support for fast and easy modifications of the look and feel of the wiki.

29 +
30 +{{info}}
31 +Themes are indepedent of skins. However currently only the new Colibri skin uses them. Future skins will be made to use Color Themes. In addition, the Class/Object editor has been modified to use the selected color theme.

44 +
45 +* Make annotations by selecting the text and pressing(((
46 +Ctrl + M (Meta + M)image:ReleaseNotes.ReleaseNotesXWikiEnterprise23M1@NewAnnotation.png
47 +)))
48 +* Show annotations on your page(((

55 +image:ReleaseNotes.ReleaseNotesXWikiEnterprise23M1@EditAnnotation.png
56 +)))
57 +* Manage annotations from the "Annotations" tab(((
58 +image:ReleaseNotes.ReleaseNotesXWikiEnterprise23M1@AnnotationsTab.png
59 +)))
60 +
61 +You can find a more detailed description of the annotations feature on the [[documentation page>>platform:Features.Annotations]].
62 +
63 +== Color Theme Editor ==
64 +
65 +The new editor allows fast and easy modifications for the look and feel of the wiki. You'll find in this editor
66 +
67 +* A new way of displaying themes on the "Color Themes" space home(((
68 +image:ReleaseNotes.ReleaseNotesXWikiEnterprise23M1@AvailableThemes.png

77 +image:ReleaseNotes.ReleaseNotesXWikiEnterprise23M1@EditMenu1.png
78 +)))
79 +* The possibility to undo the latest modifications or reset all changes
80 +
81 +Read more about Color Themes on the dedicated [[application page>>extensions:Extension.Color Theme Application]].
82 +
83 +== Anonymous commenting with Captcha ==
84 +
85 +Now thanks to the [[captcha module>>extensions:Extension.Captcha Module]] you can require unregistered users to solve a captcha in order to post comments. To require guests to solve a captcha simply go to the "Rights" section of the [[Administration Application>>extensions:Extension.Administration Application]] for the wiki or just the space, and check the box saying "Require unregistered users to solve a captcha when posting a comment on a page". **Note** This box does not give guests permission to comment, it only adds a requirement for commenting if they already have permission.
86 +[[This feature is documented here.>>platform:AdminGuide.Configuration]]
87 +Sample:

90 +
91 +== Easier development of configurable applications using [[XWiki.ConfigurableClass>>extensions:Extension.Administration Application#HMaking20your20application20easily20configurable20with203Ctt3EConfigurableClass3C2Ftt3E20Since2023M1]] ==
92 +
93 +If you are developing an application and you need to provide your users with a way to configure it from the [[Administration Application>>extensions:Extension.Administration Application]] you are in luck. All you need to do is create a custom class holding all of the configuration for your application, then add an object of your custom configuration class and an object of ##XWiki.Configurable## class. You will be able to configure your application from the administration interface.
94 +The following is an image of the administration interface with additional applications to be configured (you can customize the icon used).
95 +
96 +[[image:ReleaseNotes.ReleaseNotesXWikiEnterprise23M1@AdministrationPanelExtraIcons.png||style="border: 1px solid black;" width="550px;"]]
97 +
98 +Note the current user does not have permission to edit one of the configurable applications.
99 +
100 +== Introduced [[XWiki Cryptographic Module>>extensions:Extension.Cryptographic Module]] ==
101 +
102 +This module exposes high level APIs allowing developers to bolster their security using cryptography for both integrity and confidentiality.
103 +
104 +You can find more information about the cryptographic module including examples at the Extensions page for the [[XWiki Cryptographic Module>>extensions:Extension.Cryptographic Module]].
105 +
106 +== Improvements to Action Menus ==
107 +
108 +* New Add menu: Use the "Add" menu to create new spaces, pages, add attachments and comments.(((
109 +[[image:AddMenu.png||style="border: 1px solid black;"]]
110 +)))
111 +* Improved Wiki and Space menus: You may now access the document index straight from the wiki & space menus.(((
112 +[[image:WikiMenu.png||style="border: 1px solid black;"]] [[image:SpaceMenu.png||style="border: 1px solid black;"]]
113 +)))
114 +* New Page menu: Integrates the Watch, Copy, Rename and Delete actions.(((
115 +[[image:PageMenu.png||style="border: 1px solid black;"]]
116 +)))
117 +* The Edit, Export, More actions and Profile menus also benefited from a refresh.
118 +
119 +=== Visible content menu when scrolling down ===
120 +
121 +When scrolling down on a document, the content menu will follow, so the user will not have to scroll up on top of the page in order to access it.
