Release notes for XWiki Office 1.1

Last modified by Thomas Mortagne on 2017/03/24

This release contains important improvements in the ribbon, connection options, text formatting and many bug fixes.

New and Noteworthy (since XOffice 1.0)

Optional Startup

You can now choose whether or not you want XOffice to connect to Microsoft Word at startup. To connect every time you start your word editor go to the XWord tab and click on "XWord Options". Check "Connect at startup" in the resulting dialog.

Document refresh and View active document in browser

The ribbon has been updated since 1.0 with new buttons:


Styling support for XWord 2007 and better text formatting

Changes you make to content in Microsoft Word will appear on your wiki as well.



Page version checking when publishing

Every time you click the "Publish Document" button XWord checks for any changes that might have occurred since you last opened/saved the document. If the page suffered modifications you'll be asked whether you want to merge the two versions or not. This is especially useful when two people are editing a document at the same time.


Document compare and conflict resolution

XWord 1.1 helps you resolve conflicts between two different versions of the same document. Make sure you click yes when the page version checking is performed (above image). You can now see the original document, the revised document and the combined document that highlights the changes in the two pages.


Go to the "Review" tab in the ribbon. Here you may accept changes (one by one or all changes at once) and reject changes in the document (individually or all). To go through each change click the Previous/Next Buttons.
