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.

Annotations can now be made on HTML content, including AWM applications. Progress on the conversion from Live Table to Live Data continues. A security issue has also been fixed.

New and Noteworthy (since XWiki 13.9)

Full list of issues fixed and Dashboard for 13.10.

For Users

Annotations on content generated by the HTML macro

 
Annotations can now be added on content generated by the HTML macro.

As a direct consequence, you can also add annotations to pages that are part of an application, such as AWM applications.

Miscellaneous

  • Data Types: The list of data types (classes) of the XClass Application is now displayed using the Live Data Macro.

  • Class Sheet: The list of existing pages with objects described by a class that is provided by the XClass Application as part of the default class sheet is now displayed using the Live Data Macro.

  • Filters for Static List properties in Live Data: The suggestions in the Live Data Macro's column filters now display labels or translations (if there are any) of the values of Static List properties instead of the plain values. The search for suggestions considers both the displayed label and the underlying value.

For Admins

  • The formula macro exposes a new configuration key to define the default image type to be used when rendering a formula. See the Formula Macro documentation to learn more.

  • Support for native rendering of formulas in SVG: It is now possible to render formulas in SVG using the native formula renderer. This will provide more crisp results, which can easily be resized at will. See the Formula Macro documentation to learn more.

For Developers

  • Bulletproofed NumberProperty: NumberProperty now accept any kind of Number in input and will automatically convert it to the right type instead of crash at save.

  • SecurityEntryReaderExtra in extensions: It's now possible to contribute a org.xwiki.security.authorization.SecurityEntryReaderExtra component in an installed extension.

Backward Compatibility and Migration Notes

General Notes

  • When upgrading make sure you compare and merge the following XWiki configuration files since some parameters may have been modified, removed or added:
    • xwiki.cfg
    • xwiki.properties
    • web.xml
    • hibernate.cfg.xml
  • Add xwiki.store.migration=1 in xwiki.cfg so that XWiki will attempt to automatically migrate your current database to any new schema. Make sure you backup your Database before doing anything.
