XWiki Enterprise 3.0.1 Release Notes

Last modified by Sergiu Dumitriu on 2011/10/05

This is the first (and probably last) bugfix release for the 3.0 series.

New and Noteworthy

Backported from the 3.1 branch, two new features found their way into this release: the possibility to export a wiki document into an office format using a running OpenOffice/LibreOffice installation, and the new UI for customizing the PDF export.

PDF Export Options

If you export a wiki page to PDF using the Export menu you'll get a panel where you can configure some PDF export options. These options are defined in the PDF velocity templates and were previously available only as query string parameters to the PDF export URL.

Office Document Export

If you configure your wiki to work with an office server (LibreOffice or OpenOffice) as described in the Office Importer Application you'll notice a new entry in the export menu (as long as you are connected to the office server). By default only the ODT (OpenDocument Text format) export is exposed but you can tweak the export URL to export to other office formats supported by your office server. For instance /xwiki/bin/export/Sandbox/WebHome?format=doc exports Sandbox.WebHome page to Microsoft Word's proprietary DOC format.

Backward Compatibility and Migration Notes

General Notes

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.
