Initial Plan

  • Finish new rendering: Continue Macro rewrite: rss, graph and more. - Lead: Dan Miron

  • Start design work on new Application Manager (ability to package in a XAR: pages, external libraries, skin extensions, resources, macros, components, etc + ability to list/install/remove/upgrade applications + ability to install from a remote repo) - Lead: Thomas Mortagne/Jean-Vincent
  • Work on usability/navigation/UI improvements (like redesign special pages: WebHome, AllDocs, Tags, etc, improve navigation with a treeview panel, autosuggest in search box, etc). We need to define 3-4 items we want in priority. Lead: Jean-Vincent with Laurent/Guillaume

  • Drag and drop spaces/pages in the AllDocs treeview to reorganize pages and spaces - Lead: Marius/Anca
  • Revamp the xwiki.org web site to focus on XE only (for ex main page should only list XE with aggregated feature list) so that we show that we have only one product but various add-ons. Lead: Vincent (note: I need to make a proposal for this)
  • Skin extensions/Interface extension finalization + Template/Skin cleanup. Lead: Sergiu + Jerome
