Release Notes for XWiki Enterprise Manager 3.3 Release Candidate 1

Version 3.1 by Eduard Moraru on 2011/12/08

New and Noteworthy

XWiki Enterprise Manager is now using XWiki Enterprise 3.3 RC 1. See the XWiki Enterprise 3.3 RC 1 release notes. Apart from that, this release actually sees some major changes:

XEM now behaves as a workspace manager

After the introduction of the "Workspaces" aspect of virtual farms in the previous release, now XWiki Enterprise Manager has been changed to be a Workspaces distribution.

The previous virtual farm usecase is still achievable by using XWiki Enterprise and installing the Wiki Manager Application.

Path-based multiwiki enabled by default

In virtual mode, XWiki can work in two ways: based on domain names, where each virtual wiki is accessed from a different DNS domain, like wikiname.myfarm.net, and path-based, where each virtual wiki is accessed on a different path of the same domain, like www.myfarm.net/wikis/wikiname/. Since the former mode is harder to set up, since it requires a custom DNS server, we have enabled the second mode by default in this release.
