New features implemented

New publication mode : Open

Your workspaces can now be open, allowing every registered user to access such workspaces with both view and edit permissions. As for public workspaces, those will be listed for everybody, in the "All my spaces" interface.

Application management

Because you do not always need all the provided applications, you can now uninstall and install applications in a workspace whenever you want. To do so, click on the "Administration" link of a workspace, and in the administration menu, click the "Manage Applications" link. (You will need to be administrator of that workspace to be able to do that).

When creating new workspaces, the default application list remain the same for now (Wiki, Blog, Photos, Files). You can modify this list changing the xwiki.workspaces.defaultapplications parameter in xwiki.cfg. In next milestone, checkboxes will be provided for being able to choose applications to install at workspace creation time.

New application : the Workstream

With this release, a new application is made available for every workspace : the Workstream. The workstream allow the workspace members to keep their coworkers informed of what they are doing. The workstream is a simple update stream, that also allows users to decide if they want their story published on the workspace dashboard and on user dashboards.

Installers

There are now both Windows and generic java installers for a smoother first installation of XWiki Workspaces.

Upgrading from an older version

The process to upgrade an existing WAR installation of XWiki Workspaces is very similar as the one described here for XWiki Enterprise. You will need to save your configuration files (xwiki.cfg and hibernate.cfg.xml) in order to keep the new war working with your environment.
