The XWiki development team is proud to announce the availability of XWiki 9.8!

This release introduces a new feature for the Notifications: Watched Entities. It is an experimental feature that will soon replace the Watchlist Application. To try it out and get familiar with it, you need to enable it, since it is currently disabled by default.

For users, we now have more usable notification filter settings, a nice helper when you edit a "Database List" field and a feature that was missing from the CKEditor integration, which is office import.

For developers, it is easier to propose an extension containing REST resources, or to customize the Flamingo LESS code. We have also exposed more database columns in the Query Module for users who don't have programming rights. The notification filters AST (Abstract Syntax Tree) proposes new types of nodes to create complex filter queries. There are also new facilities to avoid using SyntaxFactory, to make Extension Manager faster, or to have more control over some skin elements (CSS IDs and layout variables).

Full release notes available here.
