The XWiki development team is proud to announce the availability of XWiki Enterprise 7.0.

This is the first release of the 7.x cycle. It features many improvements for extensions, a simplified Wiki Creation Wizard, improved differences view, integration of a new Tree Widget with the WYSIWYG editor and Index Application, etc. 

Regarding extensions, we now have the ability to organize and filter extensions by category in the Extension Repository, the install date and the user that performed the install are now available in the extension details, the extensions that were installed explicitly are now displayed distinctly, etc.

We improved the difference views for document history and extension upgrade process, by showing a difference summary between the two versions, detailed changes to objects definitions, etc. 

Developers may enjoy a new application to edit wiki Skins, a new Finder Plugin for the Tree Widget and API improvements to the Mail Sender and Extension Manager modules.

The Watchlist module has a new component based implementation and also there is an experimental Realtime Watchlist Notification feature.

XWiki also moved to Servlet 3.0.1 which means various old application servers versions are not supported anymore and the old Lucene search module was finally retired to Contrib.

See the release notes for more information.
