Release Notes for XWiki 10.11-rc-1

Version 4.1 by Ecaterina Moraru (Valica) on 2018/12/19

This is the release notes for XWiki Commons, XWiki Rendering and XWiki Platform. They share the same release notes as they are released together and have the same version.

In this version we've added a way to rapidly empty the wiki's recycle bin, that contains all the deleted pages. We've also polished the asynchronous execution and caching of panels added in the previous version, that makes the panels render faster. 

New and Noteworthy (since XWiki 10.10)

Full list of issues fixed and Dashboard for 10.11.

All Changes

For Users

Delete all from the recycle bin

It is now possible to permanently delete all pages that have been already deleted, in order to clean the recycle bin. See Index Application Documentation.

For Admins

No changes!

For Developers

Use RequestFactory to create a request from the refactoring script service

The refactoring script service has been refactored: you need to access the new RequestFactory in order to create any kind of request.
For example a script using :

#set ($renameRequest = $services.refactoring.createRenameRequest($source, 'NewName')) 

should now use: 

#set ($renameRequest = $services.refactoring.requestFactory.createRenameRequest($source, 'NewName')) 

All the API related to refactoring operations themselves remains at the same place. See the Refactoring Module Documentation for all information.


The following runtime dependencies have been upgraded (they have a different release cycle than XWiki Commons, XWiki Rendering and XWiki Platform):
