26 )))

34 )))
35
36 You can find a more detailed description of the annotations feature on the [[documentation page>>platform:Features.Annotations]].
37
38 == Color Theme Editor ==
39
40 The new editor allows fast and easy modifications for the look and feel of the wiki. You'll find in this editor
41

61
62 == Anonymous commenting with Captcha ==
63
64 Now thanks to the [[captcha module>>code:Modules.CaptchaModule]] you can require unregistered users to solve a captcha in order to post comments. To require guests to solve a captcha simply go to the "Rights" section of the [[Administration Application>>code:Applications.AdministrationApplication]] for the wiki or just the space, and check the box saying "Require unregistered users to solve a captcha when posting a comment on a page". **Note** This box does not give guests permission to comment, it only adds a requirement for commenting if they already have permission.
65 [[This feature is documented here.>>platform:AdminGuide.Configuration]]
66 Sample:

70 == Easier development of configurable applications using [[XWiki.ConfigurableClass>>code:Applications.AdministrationApplication#HMaking20your20application20easily20configurable20with203Ctt3EConfigurableClass3C2Ftt3E20Since2023M1]] ==
71
72 If you are developing an application and you need to provide your users with a way to configure it from the [[Administration Application>>code:Applications.AdministrationApplication]] you are in luck because all you need to do is create a custom class holding all of the configuration for your application then add an object of your custom configuration class and an object of ##XWiki.Configurable## class and your application will be able to be configured in the administration interface.

93 = Backward Compatibility and Migration Notes =
94
95 == General Notes ==
96
97 {{warning}}
98 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 <tt>xwiki.store.migration.databases=db1,db2,...//.
99 {{/warning}}
100
101 You may also want to [[import the default wiki XAR>>Main.Download]] in order to benefit from the improvements listed above.
102
103 {{warning}}
104 Always make sure you compare your //xwiki.cfg// file with the newest version since some configuration parameters were added. Note 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.
105 {{/warning}}
106
107 == Migration Notes ==
108
109 * headers id generation changed a bit and allow more characters: hyphens ("-"), underscores ("_"), colons (":"), and periods (".") are not filtered anymore.
