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 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.

New and Noteworthy (since XWiki 11.2)

Full list of issues fixed and Dashboard for 11.3.

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.

Miscellaneous

  • Tomcat 9 based Debian Package: Tomcat 9 is now the current stable branch of Tomcat so we provide a Debian Package of XWiki based on it.

  • 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.

For Admins

Warning when Deleting Users with Script Right


Wiki administrators are now warned when they are about to delete users that have Script or Programming Rights, if there are pages that were last modified by these users. Check out the Administration Application documentation for more information.
