Release Notes for Cristal 0.7

Last modified by Ludovic Dubost on 2024/04/26

This is the release notes for Cristal.

This is the first public release of Cristal.

The two main changes are the introduction of a main UI layout corresponding to the wireframes, and the possibility to persist the modifications done in edit mode.

This is a very early release and Cristal is still under heavy development.

  • All APIs are subject to be changed without notice
  • A lot of features are subject to limitations that will be removed over time
  • See the Roadmap page to see what we plan to work on in the next releases

New and Noteworthy

Full list of issues fixed and Dashboard for 0.7.

For Users

Main UI Layout

The pages layout is now completely reworked to match the Wireframes.

We currently support two design systems: Shoelace and Vuetify, and it's possible switch by configuration.

Introduction of Prosemirror

We integrated prosemirror for the editor in this release, as a way to have a way to nicely edit content to save.
Following the editor choice discussion on the forum, we are going to switch to Tiptap on Cristal 0.8.


  • File System Backend: A file system backend is now available when using the electron distribution. This backend allows to store the wiki content as files on a local $HOME/.cristal directory.

  • Introduction of page save: Clicking on save now actually persists pages

    XWiki Backend

    • The XWiki instance needs a few specific configurations
    • The wiki must have a user with credentials Admin:admin with edit right on the saved page

    File System Backend

    • A $HOME/.cristal directory must exist

For Admins

No changes!

For Developers

Icon UI Vue Component

A generic Icon Vue Component is now available.


<script lang="ts" setup">
import {CIcon} from "@cristal/icons";
<c-icon name="alarm"></c-icon>
