8
9 * Theme: **Slick, Slim and Secure**
10
11 Explanations:
12
13 * Performance improvements across the board: page load time, scalability, activity stream rewrite, memory usage rationalization.
14 * Introduce the flavor mechanism (as already discussed here) with the idea of removing the maximum of extensions from the base and be able to build a minimal, lightweight wiki, have a few flavors.
15 * Slickiness achieved with things like new skin, syntax highlighting + autocompletion, easier rights UI and more.
16 * Also spend time improving various security aspects, including the addition of Signed scripts.
17
18 In short we’ve realized that XWiki has grown along the years and it’s becoming a bit heavyweight in various aspects. So the idea would be to focus on performances and ease of use to slim it down and ensure it’s kicking fast!

122 XWiki 6.3 is the first of the 2 stabilization releases leading to the end of the 6.x cycle. As such it’s important to polish and fix bugs. It’s also going to be short so that we can finish 6.4 by the end of the year and start the new XWiki cycle (7.x) at beginning of next year.
