7 This is the first milestone of the XWiki Enterprise 4.1 version ([[Roadmap>>Main.Roadmap]]). This release brings new 3D graphs made with pure XWiki syntax, safer Groovy scripting, and better hiding of internal application related documents.

11 == 3D Charting ==
12
13 We've [[added 2 new types of charts>>extensions:Extension.Chart Macro]], **bar3D** and **line3D**, which draw 3D charts.
14
15 For example the following code:
16
17 {{code}}
18 {{chart type='bar3D' source='inline' params='range:B2-B9;series:columns'}}
19 |=Date|=Value

35 == Hide Technical Documents ==
36
37 This effort was started in XWiki 4.0. However in 4.0 we had only implemented the technical solution to mark documents as hidden but we didn't get the time to use it. Now in 4.1 we've marked a lot of documents as Technical and we've modified a lot of UI screens to only display technical documents for users who ask for it.
38
39 Specifically there's a User Profile preference that you can set if you wish to see technical documents:
40
41 {{image reference="hidetechnicaldocuments.png"/}}
42
43 More precisely, the following was implemented:
44 * Mark a lot of documents as technical documents in the default XWiki Enterprise XAR
45 * Filter hidden documents from Lucene search results
46 * Filter hidden documents from database search results
47 * Filter hidden documents from default panels
48 * Filter hidden documents in REST APIs
49 * Filter hidden documents in LiveTable results
50
51 As a consequence, by default, a user will only about 24 documents out of 300+ that exist in the default XWiki Enterprise XAR, making it a lot nicer and simpler to apprehend.
52
53 == Improvements to the Extension Manager ==
54
55 The following improvements were made:
56 * Performance improved by several order of magnitude
57 * Install/Uninstall extensions asynchronously
58 * Improve the display of extension install/uninstall plan
59
60 TODO: Add sceenshots
61
62 == Taming of Groovy scripts ==
63
64 Since traditionally, Groovy scripts can enter into unstoppable infinite loops, use reflection to violate security assumptions, access server resources, or even crash the virtual machine, they have been off limits to non-administrators.
65
66 In a bid to open up new scripting options to less permitted users (especially in wiki farms where getting Programming Rights is a problem since it means having those rights on the whole farm), steps have been taken to make Groovy safer.
67
68 Groovy scripts are now technically allowed to users having simple Edit rights but the Groovy Sandbox is currently very restrictive (said differently, you cannot do anything useful with it at the moment! :)). Now that we have the mechanism in place our plan is to slowly open up allowed operations.
69
70 To enable and test this feature read the [[configuration guide>>platform:AdminGuide.Configuration||anchor="HSecuringGroovyScripts"]].
71
72 === Compilation customizers ===
73
74 Customizers can be registered to alter the Groovy script as it is compiled such as filtering System.exit() calls and adding timeout checks to loops to prevent infinite looping. Learn more: http://www.jroller.com/melix/entry/upcoming_groovy_goodness_automatic_thread
75
76 === Stop run-away Groovy scripts after a configurable timeout ===
77
78 You can now configure your wiki to stop Groovy scripts after a configurable amount of run time. For example if you wish to have a timeout of 10 seconds for your XWiki runtime, you'd configure xwiki's ##xwiki.properties## with:
79
80 {{code language="none"}}
81 groovy.compilationCustomizers=timedinterrupt
82 groovy.customizer.timedInterrupt.timeout=10
83 {{/code}}
84
85 == New support for "short form" HQL queries in the query manager ==
86
87 When you send a search query to the query manager such as {{code language="none"}}where doc.creationDate > '2008-01-01'{{/code}} It is now assumed that you meant:
88
89 {{code language="none"}}
90 select doc.fullName from XWikiDocument as doc where doc.creationDate > '2008-01-01'
91 {{/code}}
92
93 == For developers ==
94
95 * New rendering compatibility test suite to make testing easier and simplify implementation of new syntax renderers. The compatibility report can be found here: http://rendering.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Main/SyntaxReport
96
97 * New API for upgrading installed XWiki Extensions.
98
99 = Bug fixes and improvements =
100
101 * Fixed wrong calculation of IDs for stats values making it impossible to upgrade a wiki to version 4.0 if statistics collection is enabled.
102 * Faster first startup time by not running a database migration when it is not needed.
103 * Simplify reverse proxy setup by making all HTTP redirects use relitive URLs.
104 * Add support for bold, italic and monospace in the TeX Renderer
105 * Was impossible to delete then recreate a subwiki with the same name, fixed.
106 * Fixed Javascript error when scrolling over Search Suggest results in Internet Explorer 6.
107 * Trying to change a document's parent from the REST service resulted in an error, fixed.
108 * It is now possible for non-administrators to execute cross-wiki XWQL queries.

151 {{info}}
152 If you're running in a multiwiki setup you'll also need to define the property //xwiki.store.migration.databases// in your //xwiki.cfg// file if you want to explicitly name some databases to be migrated as the default is now to migrate all databases. Database that are not migrated could not be accessed.
153 {{/info}}
154
155 You may also want to [[import the default wiki XAR>>Main.Download]] in order to benefit from all the improvements listed above.
156
157 {{warning}}
158 Always make sure you compare your ##xwiki.cfg## and ##xwiki.properties## files with the newest version since some configuration parameters were 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.
