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 and XWiki Platform.

General goals for all releases:

  • More tests
  • Better javadoc
  • More documentation on xwiki.org
  • 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 10.10

BAU:

  • Thomas/Vincent: Improve STAMP KPIs (20%)

  • Marius/Adel/Simon: ConfigurableClass doesn't support page level configuration ccse

  • Marius/Adel/Simon: Display Reference of documents to copy paste
  • Marius/Adel/Simon: Improve the XClass picker when in object edit mode (make it like the Add Macro dialog for WYSIWYG editor)
  • Thomas: work on some items to make the upgrade experience simpler + unattended upgrades (ability to upgrade XWiki from the command line without interaction). Use the result of Caty's investigation from XWiki 10.8 period.
