Roadmap

Last modified by Vincent Massol on 2021/04/19

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 13.3

Leftovers from 13.2:

  • Add the possibility to add global notifications filters from Administration - Simon

New work:

  • Security issues (to be backported in 12.10.x too) (Simon + GuillaumeC)
  • Test and classify security issues + fix some easy security issues - Guillaume
  • XDOM diff - Marius + Vincent
  • FASTEN research project: Thomas
    • add macros/components metadata to the extension index and introduce extension points to fill it (extension point to be used in a future FASTEN extension when this kind of information will be available on FASTEN Central)
    • work on design to implement various ways to find components in extensions without going through FASTEN Central
    • add more analyzers in the FASTEN Maven plugin and hopefully start using it in the XWiki build (but currently blocked by a released of the fasten-core which is still only SNAPSHOT)
    • start working on a FASTEN extension to analyze installed dependencies and report FASTEN risks
