5 This is the release notes for [[XWiki Commons>>http://commons.xwiki.org]], [[XWiki Rendering>>http://rendering.xwiki.org]], [[XWiki Platform>>http://platform.xwiki.org]] and [[XWiki Enterprise>>http://enterprise.xwiki.org]]. They share the same release notes as they are released together and have the same version.
6
7 This is mostly a stabilization release leading to XWiki 5.2 final and it brings a new "Home" top level menu (available when there is more than one wiki) and a new Distribution Wizard step to upgrade all wikis. The WikiStream framework has been improved and now can be used to export large wikis in XAR format. Besides this the new release includes 49 bug fixes and 16 small improvements.

12
13 == New "Home" menu when there is more than one wiki ==
14
15 Compared to XWiki 5.2-milestone-2, we have removed the XWiki right menu and created a "Home" menu instead.

17 {{image reference="workspace-homemenu.png"/}}
18
19 The "main wiki" (the first you have when you start a new instance) is now called "**Home**".
20
21 == Distribution Wizard Step to Upgrade All Wikis ==
22
23 We added a new step to the [[Distribution Wizard>>doc:platform:Features.DistributionWizard]] to update the default set of wiki pages on each of the existing wikis. This step is triggered only if you choose to upgrade the entire farm in the "Upgrade Mode" step.

26
27 == Markdown Syntax 1.1 ==
28
29 We've added [[version 1.1 of the Rendering Syntax for Markdown>>rendering:Main.Markdown11]], adding support for:
30
31 * Macros
32 * Superscript and subscript
33 * (X)HTML improvements
34
35 == Export large wikis as XARs ==
36
37 It's possible to enable the use of new [[WikiStream>>doc:extensions:Extension.WikiStream Module]] framework in standard export action (use in the standard export UI for example). Among other things it allows exporting a wiki of pretty much any size.
38
39 [[WikiStream>>doc:extensions:Extension.WikiStream Module]] is too young to be enabled by default and will require heavy testing. In the meantime you can try it by uncommenting {{code}}# xwiki.action.export.xar.usewikistream=1{{/code}} at the end of xwiki.cfg file.
40
41 == Miscellaneous ==
42
43 * Improved Active Installs Server side API to be able to pass any query to count installs.
44 * Active Installs Client now also send the Distribution id in addition to the Distribution version to identify the "product" sending the ping
45 * The checkboxes for the global rights settings are now displayed on the left of their labels.(((

47 )))
48 * The live search (search suggest) now displays a message when there are no results.(((
49 {{image reference="liveSearch-noResults.png"/}}
50 )))
51 * The blog application is now packaged by default in the Home wiki only (not in new wikis).
52 * The "Create a new wiki" link has been removed from the wiki index. Now, you can only use the //Add > Wiki// menu.
53 * The Distribution Wizard does not appear anymore just after creating a new wiki based on the default template.
54
55 = For Developers =
56
57 == WikiStream improvements ==
58
59 Various improvements and bugfixes to fully support the use case of exporting a entire wiki into a XAR package.
60
61 Also added a XAR input module for [[WikiStream>>doc:extensions:Extension.WikiStream Module]], the only thing left before covering XAR import use case in Instance output module.
62
63 == Upgrades ==
64
65 The following dependencies have been upgraded:
66
67 * Xerces2-Java 2.11.0
68
69 == Miscellaneous ==
70
71 * Added DocumentReference and EntityReference property converters which makes possible to:
72 ** use them in rendering macros parameters beans (see [[How to write a macro>>rendering:Main.ExtendingMacro||anchor="HMacroCode"]])
73 ** in Velocity pass a String directly to a method requiring a DocumentReference or EntityReference
74 * Added new API to the JODA Time plugin to get an ISO8601 formatter.

91
92 = Backward Compatibility and Migration Notes =
93
94 == General Notes ==
95
96 When upgrading make sure you compare your ##xwiki.cfg##, ##xwiki.properties## and ##web.xml## files with the newest version since some configuration parameters may have been modified or added. Note that you should add ##xwiki.store.migration=1## so that XWiki will attempt to automatically migrate your current database to the new schema. Make sure you backup your Database before doing anything.
97
98 == SOLR Search Format Change ==
99
100 If you're upgrading from XWiki 4.5.x to this version you'll need to perform a full re-indexation when using the SOLR Search. This because in XWiki 4.5.x the SOLR search was experimental and we've completely changed the indexing format in XWiki 5.1.
