The XWiki development process uses JIRA for listing all tasks to be implemented and all bugs to be fixed.

You'll find there the dates and versions planned for issues to be fixed and hence the XWiki roadmaps. There's also a release calendar listing all known dates for future releases. Please understand that these dates are often tentative since XWiki's development is open source and lots of committers/contributors are working in their free time on XWiki.

If you're interested to help out check the contributing page.

We're releasing several top level projects together and as such we've decided to have the same Roadmap page for all of them. Thus this page contains the roadmap for the following projects: XWiki Commons, XWiki Rendering, XWiki Platform and XWiki Enterprise.

General goals for all releases:

  • More tests
  • Better javadoc
  • More documentation on
  • Code cleanup/refactoring

Already implemented roadmaps can be found in the archives.

Note that all planned release dates are also entered in the Calendar on JIRA.

XWiki Enterprise 8.x Cycle

Release dates for the 8.x Cycle:

  • 8.0: March 2016 accept
  • 8.1: May 2016
  • 8.2: July 2016
  • 8.3: September 2016

XWiki 8.1

  • Continue CKEditor work. The goal is to be ready to replace the GWT WYSIWYG by the CKEditor integration before the end of 8.1 and bundle it in 8.1. The default would still be the GWT one but a configuration option would allow to make CK the default + it should be possible to have both editors available for testing. - Marius
  • Develop an SSO authenticator to authenticate on an XWiki instance based on users located on another XWiki instance (basically if you’re authenticated on XWiki instance 1 then you’d be authenticated on XWiki instance 2). + possibly oAuth authentication - Thomas
  • Business as usual: Bug Fixing Days every Thursday + polishing of existing features - All
  • Finish Migration Guide to XWiki 7.4+ + Nested Spaces migrator - Guillaume
  • Finish work related to the minimal distribution/XWiki flavor - Thomas
