XWiki Enterprise and XWiki Enterprise Manager 3.2 Released

The XWiki development team is proud to announce the availability of XWiki Commons, XWiki Rendering, XWiki Platform, XWiki Enterprise and XWiki Enterprise Manager 3.2. Following the goals established for the 3.x cycle, XWiki Enterprise 3.2 pushes forward in the directions of the Application Within Minutes and Extension Manager features. The highlights of this release are: 

  • many extension manager improvements
  • new implementation of the sheet system making it easier to bind sheets to objects without an explicit inclusion of the sheet in the document content
  • user dashboards giving each user the possibility to configure their own home page
  • introduction of wiki workspaces, as a more collaborative way of managing an XWiki virtual farm
  • improvements of search results scoring
  • storage improvements, bringing in numerous performance and compatibility improvements
  • conversion of the panels application to the XWiki 2.0+ syntax
  • easier activation and configuration of Google Analytics

And on the developers' front:

  • CSRF prevention enabled by default
  • support for DocBook syntax
  • xwiki-commons and xwiki-rendering are now published on the central Maven2 repository
  • some major code cleanup due to the retirement of some very old plugins and the move of legacy/deprecated code into separate modules

We've setup a Jira dashboard to present the work done for the whole 3.2 release. In summary, 338 issues have been closed by 12 committers (and other contributors providing patches), out of which 149 are fixed bugs.

XWiki Enterprise 3.3 Milestone 1 Released

The XWiki development team is proud to announce the availability of XWiki Enterprise 3.3 Milestone 1. First milestone of the XWiki Enterprise 3.3 version.

  • a preview version of the new class editor to be used in the Application Within Minutes designer
  • new Debian packages for XWiki
  • a few extension manager improvements
  • LDAP improvements
  • improvements on uploading and downloading attachments, especially when filesystem storage is enabled

And on the developers' front:

  • script services for Application Manager and Wiki Manager
  • cache improvements
  • changes in the way XAR modules are packaged
  • and the usual dependency upgrades and translation improvements
