19 == Top 10 Features ==
20
21 10.x cycle is defined by having an improved usability for onboarding new users and administrators. We've handled diverse areas of XWiki in order to achieve that and here are the top 10 features that we wish to mention (arbitrarily hand-picked; it's hard to pick 10 out of 750 issues):

27 === New colors ===
28
29 In the 10.x cycle we've refreshed our [[color theme>>extensions:Extension.Flamingo Theme Application]] while keeping our professional and clean look and feel. Our community [[voted>>https://forum.xwiki.org/t/refresh-the-default-color-theme-for-xwiki-10-x/]] for blue as our main color, replacing the black color we had in the past.

41 === Visible Save ===
42
43 We made sure the save buttons are always visible when editing the content of the page. We've also simplified the available options and naming so that the editing process becomes more natural.

56 === Administrate navigation ===
57
58 The [[Navigation Panel>>extensions:Extension.Panels Application||anchor="HNavigationPanel"]] is now configurable and we've removed the XWiki specific pages in order to provide an unclutered view. You can now drag pages from the navigation tree to exclude or include them, while making sure the navigation is focused on users content pages.
59
60 Also the [[Menus>>extensions:Extension.Menu Application]] are now integrated inside the [[Administration>>extensions:Extension.Administration Application]].

73 === Refactoring operations protection ===
74
75 In order to prevent accidental modifications of extensions pages and classes, pages that belong to installed extensions are now protected for the majority of refactoring operations: edit, rename, move, delete. Users are forbidden or warned that their actions will have consequences. This assures to have fewer unnecesary errors and to inform users about the nature of existing pages.

96 === Editor Improvements ===
97
98 We've added several improvements to our [[CKEditor integration>>extensions:Extension.CKEditor Integration]]. Here are our top 3:
99
100 ==== Inline Macro Content Editing ====
101
102 We support inline editing of the content for some macros (like box, info, warning, error and figure macros). The user can edit directly in the context of the editor, instead of going to the dedicated macro modal.
103

106
107 (% class="col-xs-12 col-sm-6" %)
108 (((
109 ==== Macro Content Prefill ====
110
111 When inserting a macro, the macro content text area is prefilled with the text selected within the editing area.

117
118 (% class="col-xs-12 col-sm-6" %)
119 (((
120 ==== Link Autocomplete ====
121
122 You can now create links to existing wiki pages and attachments directly from the editing area using the link auto-complete feature. Just type {{code}}[{{/code}} (open square bracket) followed by at least 2 characters and you will get link suggestions based on the typed text.

129 (% class="col-xs-12 col-sm-6" %)
130 (((
131 === Auto-suggest for pages ===
132
133 Several inputs related to selecting pages references now support auto-suggestion, making it much simpler to use and less error prone (such as not having to know if the reference should end with WebHome). You can find these inputs in Administration, when using the standard classes or you can use it when creating your own applications.
