Release Notes for XWiki Enterprise 3.2 Release Candidate 1

Last modified by Eduard Moraru on 2011/10/06

First release candidate of XWiki Enterprise 3.2 version (Roadmap). Unless a bug is found, this will become the 3.2 final release. See the full list of closed issues for this release on our bugtracker.

New and Noteworthy (since XWiki Enterprise 3.2 Milestone 3)

Workspaces

We have adopted the Workspace Application as an XWiki platform project. In a few words, the Workspace Application allows regular users to create workspaces where they can collaborate on a specific topic. Once the work is done, they can delete the workspace if they wish so. A workspaces is, in essence, a regular subwikis that is to be used only by global users. It allows global users to join or be invited and to easily navigate through the available workspaces and to the main wiki.

The Workspace Application suits best for intranets or any other usecase that involves having only global users and going back and forward through projects or departments that are separated in subwikis. On the other hand, the Workspace Application is not intended to be used in environments such as wiki farms, where each subwiki is a bubble, having it's own users and not knowing/caring about other subwikis or the main wiki. This later use case is better served by XWiki Enterprise Manager.

Main wiki section displayed in top menu while in a workspace
Workspace Users section in the workspace's administration section replacing 'Registration' and 'Users'
Workspace Directory listing available workspaces and available actions

The Workspace Application is not bundled by default with any XWiki product, but it can be installed as an extension.

Due to an incomplete transfer process, the Workspace Application is actually unusable in 3.2RC1. However, it will be available starting with 3.2 final since the bug has been fixed.

Migration

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.
