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

27 === Look & Feel ===
28
29 In the 10.x cycle the look & feel didn't changed drastically, but we've worked mostly on consistency and polishing of the visual elements we already have. In this section we can mention from improved PDF export, to consistent modals and icons, to adding new extension points; but our top 3 changes are:
30
31 ==== Faster UI ====
32
33 We've added a new asynchronous rendering framework that assures that panels, menus, wiki UI extensions and wiki macros are cached and thus load much faster.

38 ==== New colors ====
39
40 In the beginning of the 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.

70
71 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 uncluttered 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.
72
73 Also the [[Menus>>extensions:Extension.Menu Application]] are now integrated inside the [[Administration>>extensions:Extension.Administration Application]].

86 === Refactoring operations protection ===
87
88 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 unnecessary errors and to inform users about the nature of existing pages.

109 === Editor Improvements ===
110
111 We've added several improvements to our [[CKEditor integration>>extensions:Extension.CKEditor Integration]]. Here are our top 3:
112
113 ==== Inline Macro Content Editing ====
114
115 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.
116

122 ==== Macro Content Prefill ====
123
124 When inserting a macro, the macro content text area is prefilled with the text selected within the editing area.

130
131 (% class="col-xs-12 col-sm-6" %)
132 (((
133 ==== Link Autocomplete ====
134
135 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.

144 === Auto-suggest for pages ===
145
146 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.

166
167 We've revamped several [[places>>ReleaseNotes.Data.XWiki.10\.6RC1.Change005]] to use the new compact users displayer. We display the user / group avatar followed by the user / group name, while suggestions are retrieved from both the current wiki and the main wiki.
168
169 We've improved the [[Groups>>extensions:Extension.Administration Application||anchor="HGroups"]] section in Administration to display the user type and scope. Also we are finally displaying the user membership in the [[profile>>extensions:Extension.User Module.User Profile Application||anchor="HGroups"]].
