16 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.

18 The main focus of this version was developer tools such as introducing support for exposing WebSocket endpoints as XWiki components, making easier to handle skin extensions in asynchronous HTML content, a more accurate strategy to select between several similar Java methods in Velocity scripts and support for ConfigurableClass in all administration pages. It also comes with various bug fixes and improvements.
