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.

<insert description of release here>

New and Noteworthy (since XWiki <version - 1>)

Full list of issues fixed and Dashboard for <version>.

For Users

Consistent Blog Icons

 
The icons used in the Blog Application are now displayed using the Icon Theme Application, hence they are now consistent with icons used everywhere else in XWiki.

For Admins

Active Installs displays Distribution Graph

 
The Active Install application now displays a graph showing what packagings users have used to install XWiki (Debian, WAR, HSQLDB/Jetty, etc). You can see it live on xwiki.org.

Miscellaneous

  • Get all org.xwiki* distributions: The graphs now matches all org.xwiki* distributions (used to only match XWiki Enterprise). Before, we were filtering on the org.xwiki.platform:xwiki-platform-web distribution id but since we now send the packaging used in the distribution id property, we needed to find a way to list all distributions done by the XWiki open source project.

For Developers

  • An InstanceId converter has been added so that it's now possible to convert from String to InstanceId and vice versa (useful for Velocity scripts needing to call an API that accepts an InstanceId object for example).
