Release Notes for XWiki 14.10.1

Last modified by Manuel Leduc on 2023/01/09

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.

This is mainly a bugfix release that covers important issues that we have discovered since 14.10 has been released. However, it also comes with an improved attachment gallery picker and a way for developers to restrict when it's allowed to execute a template. It also included fixes for several security vulnerabilities, making it a recommended upgrade.

The following regressions were introduced in this release (and found after it was released). Please check them out and if they impact you we recommend waiting to upgrade to a version where they are fixed.

New and Noteworthy (since XWiki 14.10)

Full list of issues fixed and Dashboard for XWiki 14.10.1.

For Users

Attachment gallery picker scope selection toggle

The attachment gallery picker allows to define a search scope, either the current page only, or all viewable pages. In addition, a warning is displayed to the user when the selected attachment is not from the current page.

For Admins

No changes!

For Developers

Template requirements

It's now possible to express, through template properties, requirements that must be met before the template is executed. By default, the possibility to express a requirement on the context action is supported but any extension can provide its own requirements types. See Template Module for more details.
