Release Notes for XWiki 11.3

Version 9.1 by Simon Urli on 2019/04/30

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.

This release was focused on bug fixes. It comes with a lot of bug fixes and a couple of small improvements for things like the live table date filter, the Database List field from AppWithinMinutes or the Delete User modal. There's also a new Tomcat 9 based Debian package that you might want to try.
We managed to fix 43 bugs in total, among them 10 were blockers and 8 criticals. You can find more interesting statistics and the full list of changes below.

For Users

Improved Date Filter

The look & feel of the live table date filter has been improved. You can check it on the Page Index.

Improved Database List Field

The Database List field that you can use when creating an application with AppWithinMinutes has been improved. It is now displayed by default using an input suggest picker that adapts to single and multiple selection. You can still change the display type if you want. If you choose the "Select" display type then you can also control its size.


  • The user notification filter preferences are now automatically updated when a watched page is moved/renamed.

  • "My Groups" user profile section has been renamed to "Groups": Check the User Profile documentation for more information.
