The XWiki development team is proud to announce the availability of XWiki 12.1RC1.

This release brings a simplified WYSIWYG Editor toolbar, the ability to increase Office import performances by supporting pools of LibreOffice servers, an experimental redesign of the Notifications feature for increased scalability and a couple of bug fixes (19). Many of our third party dependencies have been upgraded also. There are less new features and improvements than usual because we focused on 3 important investigations, whose results will be seen in the next versions:

  • ActivityPub Integration: we're implementing an extension to allow XWiki be part of the Fediverse and use ActivityPub. The first use case we want to support is to be able to follow the activity of an user from another XWiki instance.
  • Notifications Re-Architecture: we're looking for ways to improve the performance of the XWiki notifications; we're experimenting for instance with storing pre-filtered user notifications.
  • In-place and real-time editing: we want to improve the editing experience by reducing the number of steps required to make changes and we want to enable true collaboration with real-time editing

See the release notes for more information.
