  • Ability to display a Captcha for spam prevention.
  • All fields are checked by client-side script as the user types, then checked by the server for security.
  • One-click login after registration.

  • Easy for administrators to add fields, configuration with code.
  • Can be imported/edited without programming rights.
  • Works on older wikis if LiveValidation is imported (Captcha won't appear)

New Menu in Edit mode

The different edition modes that used to be in a separate Panel are now in a new edit menu (similarly to the menu you get in view mode).

WYSIWYG improvements

Improved speed and responsiveness of the WYSIWYG editor

  • Decreased the number of tool bar updates (the updates should be delayed with a significant number of milliseconds); normally, just a single update needs to be executed, after the user finishes typing a text fragment
  • Decreased the number of evaluations done at each update by using a cache; most of the evaluations are related to the current selection and are shared by multiple editor plugins

Comments UI improvements

Edit comment

The users have the possibility to edit their comments.

The users have the possibility to preview their comment before submitting it.

Important bugs fixed

  • HTML export now support dynamic skin elements (like Colibri skin color theme system)

Dependencies upgrade

  • Upgrade to GWT 2.0.0

General Notes

If you're running in a multiwiki setup you'll also need to define the property xwiki.store.migration.databases=all to your xwiki.cfg file or explicitly name all databases to be migrated as in <tt>xwiki.store.migration.databases=db1,db2,....

You may also want to import the default wiki XAR in order to benefit from the improvements listed above.

Always make sure you compare your xwiki.cfg file with the newest version since some configuration parameters were added. The XWiki CaptchaPlugin was replaced by the Captcha Module. If your xwiki.cfg contains the line "com.xpn.xwiki.plugin.captcha.CaptchaPlugin," you must remove it otherwise XWiki will fail to start. Note 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.
