This is the release notes for XWiki Commons, XWiki Rendering and XWiki Platform. They share the same release notes as they are released together and have the same version.

<insert description of release here>

New and Noteworthy (since XWiki <version - 1>)

Full list of issues fixed and Dashboard for <full version here even for RC, e.g. 10.5>.

For Users

Exclude top level application pages from the Navigation Panel


The top level application pages are now excluded by default from the Navigation Panel. This allows the Navigation Panel to focus more on your own content pages.

Improved view of XClasses in Object editor


It is easier now to find the XWiki Class of interest by using the new suggest box that replaces the old select element. The old way of searching is still available so the user still can explore the full list of available classes.

Warning conflict when editing a page


The edition of document is now protected against edition conflicts. It means that a user might now obtain a warning conflict window, in case another user saved the document in the meantime. This window prevents from erasing the changes made by the first user having saved. 

Miscellaneous

  • Notifications Performances: The performance of the Notifications feature has been improved by implementing some in-memory caching of events for the users and more importantly its impact on the rest of the XWiki instance has been drastically reduced by limiting the resource allocated to it. This is a stopgap solution while waiting for a future redesign of the Notifications feature for better scalability for large volumes.

  • Backlink support improvements: The following areas containing backlinks are now refactored when renaming a page:

    • Images and attachments in wiki content
    • Wiki content in TextArea XObjects when the content is marked as containing markup
