5 This is the release notes for [[XWiki Commons>>http://commons.xwiki.org]], [[XWiki Rendering>>http://rendering.xwiki.org]] and [[XWiki Platform>>http://platform.xwiki.org]]. They share the same release notes as they are released together and have the same version.
6
7 Among other things, this release introduces the ability to **mention a user**, who will receive a notification each time she is mentionned in the content of a page, an object, or a comment. The **in-place editing** now offers the ability to **display and edit the source** (in the current syntax) of the page, and it is now possible to display the **context of a modification** in the "rendered diff" viewer.
8
9 On the performances side, a **new asynchronous event store** (mainly used for notifications) has been created, but is still not enabled by default. Also, **renaming a page** is now an **"atomic" operation**, meaning that some bugs we had while trying to rename a page which had a huge history are now fixed.
10
11 Some new tools have been added for developers and, as usual, **many bugs have been fixed** during this month.
