5 First release candidate of the 3.3 version. There are very few new things in this release, compared to 3.3 Milestone 2, most of the effort going into the extension manager and the Application Within Minutes features.

11 == Improvements to the Extension Manager ==
12
13 The Extension Manager has been improved on all fronts, from the internal management of extensions, to the administration UI, and to the XWiki Extension Repository. Now [[the extensions wiki>>extensions:Main.WebHome]] is enabled by default as a source for extensions, although only a handful of extensions have been validated at the moment.
14
15 == First version of the App Within Minutes wizard ==
16
17 After the introduction of the new class editor and the live table generator, this release brings the App Within Minutes wizard tying all the other aspects making up the App Within Minutes feature. The wizard helps you create collaborative web applications within minutes, based on XWiki's powerful structured data management system.
18
19 Start by going to the App Within Minutes home page. There you can see listed the existing applications. Click on the "Create Application" button to start the wizard.

21 [[[[image:AppWithinMinutes-Step0.png||width="400px" style="border: 1px solid #CCC"]]>>attach:AppWithinMinutes-Step0.png]]
22
23 In the first step you have to provide the application name, which will determine the application home page URL and the application space. Each application is mapped to an XWiki space.

25 [[[[image:AppWithinMinutes-Step1.png||width="400px" style="border: 1px solid #CCC"]]>>attach:AppWithinMinutes-Step1.png]]
26
27 In the second step you define the application structure, i.e. the type of data the application will handle. At the end of this step the wizard will create for you the template and the sheet that will be used to create new application entries.

29 [[[[image:AppWithinMinutes-Step2.png||width="400px" style="border: 1px solid #CCC"]]>>attach:AppWithinMinutes-Step2.png]]
30
31 In the last step you customize the way the home page of your application will look like. You can choose which columns to display in the entries live table.

33 [[[[image:AppWithinMinutes-Step3.png||width="400px" style="border: 1px solid #CCC"]]>>attach:AppWithinMinutes-Step3.png]]
34
35 At the end the wizard takes you to the home page of your application, which is the place from where you can manage the application data: edit the application structure, add new entries, edit or delete existing ones.

39 = For Developers =
40
41 == Miscellaneous ==
42
43 * [[XE-1055>>https://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XE-1055]]: Several bugs fixed in the Activity Stream, mostly caused by wrong usage of timezones
44 * [[XWIKI-7215>>https://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XWIKI-7215]]: The Livetable "loading" status is enabled sooner, right after starting to type a new filter, although the actual fetching of new rows is still delayed until the user stops typing
45 * [[XEM-204>>https://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XEM-204]]: By default path-based multiwiki is enabled in XEM, making it easier to test and run a virtual wiki farm
46 * [[XRENDERING-161>>https://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XRENDERING-161]]: Starting with XE 3.2 we had introduced caching of rendered content to improve performances but that led to a huge increase in memory needs. We've now tuned this and we've been able to keep the performance improvement and at the same time to drastically reduce the memory need.

78
79 == General Notes ==
80
81 {{warning}}
82 If you're running in a multiwiki setup you'll also need to define the property //xwiki.store.migration.databases=all// to your //xwiki.cfg// file or explicitly name all databases to be migrated as in //xwiki.store.migration.databases=db1,db2,...//.
83 {{/warning}}
84
85 You may also want to [[import the default wiki XAR>>Main.Download]] in order to benefit from all the improvements listed above.
86
87 {{warning}}
88 Always make sure you compare your ##xwiki.cfg## and ##xwiki.properties## files with the newest version since some configuration parameters were added. Note that you should add ##xwiki.store.migration=1## so that XWiki will attempt to automatically migrate your current database to the new schema. Make sure you backup your Database before doing anything.
