5 This is the first and hopefully last release candidate for XWiki Enterprise 4.0 version ([[Roadmap>>Main.Roadmap]]). This is mostly a polishing release before the final one.
6
7 = New and Noteworthy (since XWiki Enterprise 4.0 Milestone 2 version) =
8
9 == Extension Manager improvements ==
10
11 The install/uninstall plan and log are now displayed in a tab inside the details section of an extension. We plan to make the new Progress tab display the install/uninstall status in real time in the near future.

14
15 == New technical content hiding system ==
16
17 The basic support for hidden documents introduced in XWiki Enterprise 1.7 has been extended into a fully usable feature. For advanced users, it is now possible to specify that a document should be hidden when editing the document (only //wiki// or //wysiwyg// edit modes):

19 {{image reference="hidden.png"/}}
20
21 And now there's a new setting in the user profiles, letting users chose if they want hidden documents to appear in search results or not:

23 {{image reference="hiddenSettings.png"/}}
24
25 == For developers ==
26
27 === Changes in the ComponentManager API ==
28
29 The new ##lookupComponent## method (which we had introduced in 4.0M1 with the introduction of Generics support) has been renamed to ##getInstance##. New ##getInstanceList## and ##getInstanceMap## has also been introduced to replace ##lookupList## and ##lookupMap##.
30
31 == Miscellaneous ==
32
33 * There's now a link to the [[Getting Started Guide>>enterprise:GettingStarted.WebHome]] on the XWiki Enterprise home page.

56
57 = Backward Compatibility and Migration Notes =
58
59 {{warning}}
60 As usual, before upgrading to this version, be sure to have a working backup of your database(s).
61 {{/warning}}
62
63 == General Notes ==
64
65 {{info}}
66 If you're running in a multiwiki setup you'll also need to define the property //xwiki.store.migration.databases// in your //xwiki.cfg// file if you want to explicitly name some databases to be migrated as the default is now to migrate all databases. Database that are not migrated could not be accessed.
67 {{/info}}
68
69 You may also want to [[import the default wiki XAR>>Main.Download]] in order to benefit from all the improvements listed above.
70
71 {{warning}}
72 Always make sure you compare your ##xwiki.cfg## and ##xwiki.properties## files with the newest version since some configuration parameters were added. Note that 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.
