5 This is the release notes for [[XWiki Commons>>http://commons.xwiki.org]], [[XWiki Rendering>>http://rendering.xwiki.org]] and [[XWiki Platform>>http://platform.xwiki.org]]. They share the same release notes as they are released together and have the same version.

Eduard Moraru 1.5 7 Among other things, this release introduces the ability to mention a user, either inside the content of a page, object or comment, resulting in a notification being sent to that particular user. The in-place editing feature, additionally to the existing WYSIWYG mode, now also supports editing pages in source mode. Finally, it is now possible to toggle to "in context" modifications when using the "rendered diff" viewer to display the changes between 2 versions of a page.

Eduard Moraru 1.5 9 On the performances side, a new method for storing and quering events inside the wiki has been introduced which will greatly improve the performance issues related to notifications, but it is not yet enabled by default, since more work is needed. Also, renaming a page is now finally an "atomic" operation, meaning that it will be properly handled as a "rename" and no longer as a combination of "delete" + "copy", as before, which was leading to many problems, specially when the page had a large history.
