XWiki Enterprise is dead, long live XWiki!

With the release of 9.5.1 we have dropped the XWiki Enterprise distribution and instead we exposed the Flavor mechanism. Now when you install or create a new wiki you will be able to choose the Flavor you want to use. We expect in the future that the community members will provide additional Flavors built on top of XWiki and you could select between them when customizing your wiki. ...

XWiki Big Data with Elastic Search

Update Nov 2016: we published an extension to integrate Elasticsearch and Kibana4 into XWiki.

Almost two years ago, in the XWiki open source community, we needed to learn how many XWiki users we actually had and understand a bit better our user base. For this we decided to implement a big data system allowing to get information about the XWiki open source installs, all anonymously of course. ...

Improvements Review (XWiki 2.4 - 5.1)

I've prepared for XWiki SAS's Seminar a presentation reviewing the improvements and new features we added inside XWiki Enterprise between version 2.4 and version 5.1. 

For features that existed before 2.4 there is a comparison view of how it looks now and how it looked back then. I've also listed the people that were involved in making the features come true.  ...

Feature Survey Result for XWiki 4.x

In February 2012 we launched a Survey to gather information from the XWiki Community about you would like to see implemented in the XWiki 4.x development cycle. Note that we had a similar exercise in 2009 and we had posted the results.

This survey had 2 purposes:

  • Find out the main Development Themes for XWiki 4.x.
  • Have a pioritized feature list that we could pick for when we decide each specific roadmap for the 4.x releases (4.0, 4.1, etc).

The most voted themes were:

  • Theme 1: Ease of use
  • Theme 2: Quality

Jointly with us, the XWiki SAS company also did the same exercise asking the same questions to its customers. They have published the full results which aggregate both Community votes and Customers votes. You can also check out the Raw CSV Data.

We'd like to thank everyone who took the time to answer and thus who've helped drive the direction of XWiki! emoticon_smile

Feature Status - Jan 2012

In September 2009 the XWiki.org project ran a survey asking users what features they'd like to see developed in the XWiki project.

2.5 years after, here's the result of what's been implemented and what's still outstanding. Since we're going to start defining the themes for the XWiki Enterprise 4.x cycle (which lasts 1 year), it's a good time to reflect on the results achieved so far compared to the community feedback from 2009. 

The idea is to start a new survey real soon to gather feedback again about what you'd like to see in the XWiki Enterprise 4.x cycle.

So without further ado here are the results... ...

Features Survey Results

I've compiled a new version of the Feature Survey's results. After removing duplicates there were exactly 100 answers left :)

*Thanks to all the members of the community who took part to the survey!* It will help us gain more insights into which features should be included in the upcoming versions of the XWiki Platform & XWiki Enterprise.

We'll use the survey results during the discussion about the roadmap of XWiki Enterprise 2.1 which will start next week. ...
