Objects and classes editor improvements


New template based page creation

Starting with this release users and applications can provide documents that can be used as template when creating a new page. The new document (content, objects and other metadata) will be replicated from the template.


  • "Broken Links" will also offer the choice to create the new document from the "My Template" template:


Find more details about the template creation and administration on the documentation page.

New Invitation Manager application

The Invitation Manager application allows users to send emails, inviting friends and colleagues to join a wiki. You will be able to configure your wiki to send emails through an open mail relay on the server or through an email account of your choosing. 

An invitation may allow users to register in a wiki where registration is forbidden. Invitees may choose to accept or decline an invitation. Spam prevention measures ensure that email recipients will have a button to report that message as abuse.

Internationalized and configurable email templates generate rich HTML email content from user input.


Learn how you can configure this application by visiting the application page.

Backward Compatibility and Migration Notes

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 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. 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.
