6 2 important bugs have been found in this version:
7 * The order of Panels is not guaranteed
8 * Panels from the main wiki can't be used in subwikis

14 If you're upgrading from an older version and you use the new Distribution Wizard to upgrade your wiki pages you'll notice that it'll ask you to resolve conflicts on almost any pages that have been modified between your version and XWiki 4.3. This is because currently the Distribution Wizard doesn't know which version you have and thus asks you to perform the merge manually. This operation may take a long time (up to 20 minutes or so). Thus at the moment if you're upgrading from a previous version we recommend that you Cancel the Distribution Wizard and instead [[Import the new XAR>>platform:AdminGuide.Upgrade]]. This problem is [[reported in this issue>>https://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XWIKI-8252]] and should be fixed in release 4.4.

17 {{warning}}
18 If you are migrating from an earlier version than 4.0, and your database contains statistics collected using a version earlier than 2.2, you will probably encounter an issue during our automated database migration. To avoid that issue, you will need to clean up your statistics by executing some SQL commands described in issue [[XWIKI-8129>>https://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XWIKI-8129]]. Be sure to apply these before attempting the migration. If your are in doubt, apply it, these could not hurt. If you don't, you will face duplicate IDs errors during the migration process, and it will fail, preventing you to run your wiki.

21 This is the release notes for XWiki Platform, XWiki Enterprise and XWiki Enterprise Manager. They share the same release notes as they are released together and have the same version.
22
23 This release brings several improvements in Workspaces, Extension Manager, Distribution Wizard, the REST API, new field pickers (Date, User and Groups), improved translation registration and new experimental Solr search.
24
25 = New and Noteworthy (since XWiki 4.2) =
26
27 [[Full list of issues fixed and Dashboard for 4.3>>https://jira.xwiki.org/secure/Dashboard.jspa?selectPageId=11198]].
28
29 == Default date picker ==
30
31 The date picker from [[AppWithinMinutes>>extensions:Extension.App Within Minutes Application]] is now the default picker for all [[XClass>>platform:DevGuide.DataModel]] properties of type Date. This means that you'll get a date picker when editing an object with a Date property even if you didn't use AppWithinMinutes to create the XClass.
32
33 {{image reference="[email protected]"/}}
34
35 If for some reason you don't want to use the new date picker then you can edit the XClass and uncheck "Use Date Picker" for the Date property.
36
37 == User and Group picker ==
38
39 We added a user and group picker that is used by default for all [[XClass>>platform:DevGuide.DataModel]] properties of type "List of Users" and "List of Groups". When multiple selection is enabled, each selected user is added to the list above the picker. You can remove individual users from the list of selected users or you can clear the entire list.
40
41 {{image reference="[email protected]"/}}
42
43 In single selection mode whenever you select an user it overwrites the previously selected user.
44
45 {{image reference="[email protected]"/}}
46
47 The list of selected users is displayed in view mode in a similar way. For each user there is a link to their profile page.
48
49 {{image reference="[email protected]"/}}
50
51 The group picker behaves in the same way. The group alias is the name of the group document, the group name is the title of the group document while the group avatar is the first image attached to the group document.
52
53 {{image reference="[email protected]"/}}
54
55 The user and group picker can be configured to display a scope toggle that can be used to switch between local and global user/group suggestions.
56
57 {{image reference="[email protected]"/}}
58
59 You can check this if you edit a group from a subwiki (in a multiwiki environment).
60
61 {{image reference="[email protected]"/}}
62
63 == New 'Title' and 'Content' fields for App Within Minutes ==
64
65 We added two new field types to the field palette: Title and Content. They are very useful if you want to store some of your data in the title and/or the content of your application entries. All the rest of the field types store their values in object properties, i.e. in an object attached to the application entry. See the [[App Within Minutes documentation>>extensions:Extension.App Within Minutes Application||anchor="HFieldPalette"]] for more details.
66
67 {{image reference="[email protected]"/}}
68
69 == Workspace Templates ==
70
71 Similar to what admins were doing with the [[Wiki Manager Application>>extensions:Extension.Wiki Manager Application]], we noticed the need for the [[Workspace Application>>extensions:Extension.Workspace Application]] to allow users to choose what type of workspace they want to create.
72
73 {{image reference="[email protected]"/}}
74
75 Please see the current workaround for [[creating workspace templates>>https://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XWIKI-8285]] (as admin) until an easy UI becomes available.
76
77 == Experimental Solr based search engine ==
78
79 A new and experimental search engine based on [[Apache Solr>>http://lucene.apache.org/solr/]] is now available.
80
81 The new search UI offers advanced search features and results highlighting. Future versions will also include [[Faceted Search>>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Faceted_search]].
82
83 {{image reference="[email protected]"/}}
84
85 The new engine has it's own index, separate from the Lucene one, which is stored by default in the ##<permanent directory>/solr## folder. In the same folder you can also access Solr's configuration files together with the index's schema.xml which you can tweak to achieve better results. To change this folder's location, you can either pass the ##-Dsolr.solr.home## system property when you start the application container (tomcat/jetty/etc.) or you can add the ##search.solr.home## property in ##WEB-INF/xwiki.properties##.
86
87 For now, indexing is done only __manually__ by using the Search Administration UI. Because of this, in order to get any search results, you have to go to ##Administration > Applications > Search## and index/reindex the wiki. Any changes in the content of the wiki will not be searchable until you manually reindex. This limitation will be removed in future versions, once the feature matures.
88
89 {{image reference="[email protected]"/}}
90
91 This new search engine is not enable by default, since Lucene is still the default one, but, if you wish to try it out, it can be enable by going to ##Administration > Applications > Search > Search engine to use## and selecting ##Solr (Experimental)##.
92
93 == Extension Manager improvements ==
94
95 {{warning}}
96 If you're migrating from a version older than 4.2 or without any properly installed UI extensions you will notice that the Applications panel is not visible by default. This is caused by [[this issue>>https://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XWIKI-8461]]. More specifically the XWiki Object Property for the Panels list in ##XWiki.XWikiPreferences## can't be merged in this situation and your old value is kept by default if you don't specifically choose to move to new version when getting the conflict resolution UI (Note that the conflict UI will wrongly indicate that there's no changes). You thus need to manually go the the Administration and add the ##Panels.Applications## name to the Panels list.
97 {{/warning}}
98
99 === UI ===
100
101 When you click on "Show details" to get more information about an extension, the extension manager tries to resolve all the dependencies of that extension by making requests to the configured remote extension repositories. These requests slow down considerably the time needed to display the extension details. We fixed this by resolving only the local dependencies at first and then making consecutive AJAX requests to resolve the remote dependencies.
102
103 {{image reference="[email protected]"/}}
104
105 The install and uninstall plan is now progressively displayed while it is being created. This is especially useful for the Distribution Wizard since you don't have to wait anymore for the install plan to be created without getting any feedback about its progress.
106
107 {{image reference="[email protected]"/}}
108
109 As you can see in the previous image, we also limited the height of the progress tab and the extension job log is automatically scrolled to the end while the job is running.
110
111 === Private repositories ===
112
113 Maven and XWiki repositories now support authentication. You can indicate a user and a password in ##xwiki.properties## file the following way:
114
115 {{code language="properties"}}
116 extension.repositories=privatemavenid:maven:http://host.com/private/maven/
117 extension.repositories.privatemavenid.auth.user=someuser
118 extension.repositories.privatemavenid.auth.password=password
119
120 extension.repositories=extensions.xwiki.org:xwiki:http://extensions.xwiki.org/xwiki/rest/
121 extension.repositories.extensions.xwiki.org.auth.user=someuser
122 extension.repositories.extensions.xwiki.org.auth.password=password
123 {{/code}}
124
125 == Distribution Wizard improvements ==
126
127 The welcome step now lists only the available steps. For instance, when you install XWiki for the first time you don't have any extensions to upgrade so the "Extensions" step is not available.
128
129 {{image reference="[email protected]"/}}
130
131 When a step is done we visually mark it.
132
133 {{image reference="[email protected]"/}}
134
135 == Miscellaneous ==
136
137 * XWiki's multiwiki feature (a.k.a "virtual mode") now works with the HSQLDB database
138 * It's now possible to configure the LDAP timeout. See ##xwiki.authentication.ldap.timeout## property in xwiki.cfg file.
139 * New available [[Rendering syntax>>rendering:Main.WebHome]]: [[APT>>http://maven.apache.org/doxia/references/apt-format.html]]
140 * Technical pages of the [[IRCBot Application>>extensions:Extension.IRC Bot Application]] are now hidden and the application now registers itself in the Application panel:(((
141 {{image reference="[email protected]"/}}
142 )))
143 * Search Admin UI improvements ({{jira style="enum" url="https://jira.xwiki.org"}}XWIKI-8408{{/jira}}):(((
144 {{image reference="[email protected]"/}}
145 )))
146 * Automatically register translations for the FAQ and IRCBot applications
147 * XWiki Enterprise Manager does not override QuickLinks panel anymore, made useless by the new Applications panel
148 * Important Bug Fixes:
149 ** Fixed failure to import Office documents when using Filesystem Attachments.
150 ** Fixed regression that caused "share by email" and "reset password" functions to fail to send any email.
151
152 See the [[full list of JIRA issues>>https://jira.xwiki.org/sr/jira.issueviews:searchrequest-printable/temp/SearchRequest.html?jqlQuery=project%20in%20(XCOMMONS,%20XRENDERING,%20XWIKI,%20XE,%20XEM)%20and%20status%20=%20Closed%20and%20resolution%20=%20Fixed%20and%20fixVersion%20in%20(%224.3-milestone-1%22,%20%224.3-milestone-2%22,%20%224.3-rc-1%22,%20%224.3%22)]] fixed in this release.
153
154 = For Developers =
155
156 == New Localization Module ==
157
158 A new localization module has been introduced to replace the old XWikiMessageTool.
159
160 See [[extensions:Extension.Localization Module]] for more details.
161
162 == REST API improvements ==
163
164 Some improvements have been done to the REST API in order to allow more powerful searches of the data stored in the wiki.
165
166 * Results can be ordered using the ##/wikis/{wikiName}/search## and ##/wikis/{wikiName}/spaces/{spaceName}/search## resources with the following parameters:
167 ** //orderField//: one of the XWiki document field, as specified in [[HQL Query Examples in Velocity>>platform:DevGuide.velocityHqlExamples]]
168 ** //order//: ##asc## or ##desc##". By default ##asc## is used.
169
170 * Advanced search queries can be specified using ##/wikis/{wikiName}/query## resources with the following parameters:
171 ** //q//: the query to be executed (it depends on the query type)
172 ** //type//: ##hql##, ##xwql## or ##lucene##. Depending on the query type, the //q// parameter will contain a query matching the type
173 *** For ##hql## it's like a searchDocuments query, as shown in specified in [[HQL Query Examples in Velocity>>platform:DevGuide.velocityHqlExamples]].
174 *** For ##xwql## the user is allowed to use XWQL syntax for short queries ([[XWiki Query Language Specification>>dev:Design.XWiki Query Language Specification]])
175 *** For ##lucene## it's a standard Lucene query handled by the Lucene plugin ([[Lucene Plugin>>extensions:Extension.Lucene Plugin]])
176 ** Standard parameters like //start//, //number// can be specified to control the number of the results to be returned.
177
178 * Multi-wiki Lucene search using the ##/wikis/query## resource with the following parameters:
179 ** //q//: the Lucene query handled by the Lucene plugin ([[Lucene Plugin>>extensions:Extension.Lucene Plugin]])
180 ** //wikis//: a comma separated list of wikis where to perform the search.
181
182 * XARs can be imported in Wikis by POSTing it to the /wikis/{wikiName}
183 * New wikis can be created using the /wikimanager resource. (This resource is only available with XWiki Enterprise Manager)
184
185 For more information see [[XWiki RESTful API>>platform:Features.XWikiRESTfulAPI]]
186
187 In addition there was an XWiki REST API refactoring done with the introduction of a new ##xwiki-platform-rest-api## module containing all resource declarations. This is important for client and modules willing to use the REST API so that they can have all the information about resources using Java annotation. See [[XWiki RESTful API>>platform:Features.XWikiRESTfulAPI]].
188
189 == Easy creation of new XClass property types ==
190
191 It's now possible to create your own [[XClass property types>>platform:DevGuide.DataModel||anchor="HXWikiClasses2CObjects2CandProperties"]] without having to patch XWiki's old core. [[Adding a new property type>>platform:DevGuide.CreatingNewXClassPropertyTypes]] is as easy as implementing a component. This means you can extend the [[class editor>>platform:Features.PageEditing||anchor="HClasseseditingmode"]] and even the [[App Within Minutes>>extensions:Extension.App Within Minutes Application||anchor="HFieldPalette-1"]].
192
193 == Execution context property declarations ==
194
195 Execution context properties can now be associated with various metadata attributes. See [[the documentation on the execution context>>doc:platform:DevGuide.SavingData||anchor="HExecutionContext"]] for more information.
196
197 == New Scope property for wiki components and UI extensions ==
198
199 A scope can now be defined for [[wiki components>>extensions:Extension.WikiComponent Module]] and [[UI extensions>>extensions:Extension.UIExtension Module]], it allows to restrict for which wiki(s) or which user they will be available:
200
201 * Current Wiki, the component/UI extension will be available in the current wiki
202 * Global, the component/UI extension will be available in all the wikis (wiki farms)
203 * Current User, the component/UI extension will only be available for its author
204
205 == Deprecated and Retired projects ==
206
207 * The ##userdirectory## and ##usertools## plugins have been retired since they were unmaintained and mostly replaced by other features such as the Invitation module.
208
209 == Upgrades ==
210
211 The following dependencies have been upgraded:
212
213 * [[HSQLDB 2.2.9>>http://hsqldb.org/doc/2.0/changelist_2_0.txt]]

230
231 == Miscellaneous ==
232
233 * New ##org.xwiki.rendering.block.CompositeBlock## introduce to allow passing several Blocks as one Block
234 * New ##$services.model.getEntityReferenceValue## method that returns the value configured for a specific entity type
235 * Many classes in the REST API Server module that were not meant to be part of the public API have been moved to internal packages. This was done to correct a mistake that was done when the REST API module was initially developed.
236 * Fixed a bug about incorrect results in multi-wiki lucene search in the REST API.
237 * Add a ##java.util.Locale## converter which allow:
238 ** using Locale in rendering macro parameter(s)
239 ** support Java method with Locale parameter(s) in Velocity. See [[Method Arguments Uberspector>>extensions:Extension.Velocity Module||anchor="HMethodArgumentsUberspector"]] for more details.
240 * Various String language based API of ##com.xpn.xwiki.XWiki## and ##com.xpn.xwiki.doc.XWikiDocument## classes are now deprecated for their newly introduced ##java.util.Locale## equivalents.
241 * Activity Stream UI and Color Theme UI have been moved to their own modules.

290
291 == General Notes ==
292
293 {{warning}}
294 PLEASE, BACKUP YOUR DATABASE BEFORE STARTING YOUR WIKI.
295 AUTOMATED MIGRATION PROCEDURE TAKE PLACE AT STARTUP AND YOU MAY NEED TO START OVER IF YOU ENCOUNTER AN UNEXPECTED ISSUE.
296 {{/warning}}
297
298 You may also want to [[import the default wiki XAR>>Main.Download]] in order to benefit from all the improvements listed above.
299
300 {{warning}}
301 Always make sure you compare your ##xwiki.cfg## and ##xwiki.properties## files with the newest version since some configuration parameters were added. Note that you should add ##xwiki.store.migration=1## so that XWiki will attempt to automatically migrate your current database to the new schema. Make sure you backup your Database before doing anything.
302 {{/warning}}
303
304 {{warning}}
305 If you are migrating from an earlier version than 4.0, and your database contains statistics collected using a version earlier than 2.2, you will probably encounter an issue during our automated database migration. To avoid that issue, you will need to clean up your statistics by executing some SQL commands described in issue [[XWIKI-8129>>https://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XWIKI-8129]]. Be sure to apply these before attempting the migration. If your are in doubt, apply it, these could not hurt. If you don't, you will face duplicate IDs errors during the migration process, and it will fail, preventing you to run your wiki.
306 {{/warning}}
307
308 {{warning}}
309 If you have encountered an issue with the migration, you may need to start over from a backup. Be careful that during the migration, two new tables have been created (in each xwiki database for a farm) and should be dropped when you restore a backup of a database coming from a version earlier than 4.x. These two tables are DATABASECHANGELOG and DATABASECHANGELOGLOCK. These should only be removed if you restore a pre-4.x database schema. Mixing an old database with these two tables will surely cause issue during schema updates (liquibase checksum failure).
310 {{/warning}}
311
312 == Issues specific to XWiki 4.3 ==
313
314 * Since the ##userdirectory## and ##usertools## have been retired you'll need to make sure that your ##xwiki.cfg## configuration files doesn't reference them anymore in the ##plugins## property.
315 * The methods ##setUrlPatternMatcher## and ##getUrlPatternMatcher## have been removed from the core class ##com.xpn.xwiki.XWiki##. The underlying ##URLPatternMatcher## could not really be used as a singleton instance and was causing irregular failures in the basic authentication method. Thus these methods cannot be meaningfully relied upon and have therefore been removed.
316 * When setting the value using ##setValue## (or ##setList##) on a list field in an XWiki object, the list will now be copied. To be able to update the list, you must call ##getValue## (or ##getList##) and update the returned list. This is due to {{jira style="enum" url="https://jira.xwiki.org"}}XWIKI-8398{{/jira}}.
317 * Make sure that when you upgrade to XWiki Enterprise 4.3 you also update the ##web.xml## file by replacing the line ##org.xwiki.rest.XWikiRestletJaxRsApplication## with ##org.xwiki.rest.internal.XWikiRestletJaxRsApplication##.
318
319 == API Breakages ==
320
321 The following APIs were modified since XWiki 4.2:
322
323 * [Young API] Introduce API to associate dependency status to the namespace:(((
324 {{code language="none"}}
325 org.xwiki.extension.InstalledExtension: Method 'public boolean isDependency(java.lang.String)' has been added to an interface
326 {{/code}}
327 )))
328 * [Young API] Introduce ExtensionRepositoryDescriptor as a replacement of ExtensionRepositoryId:(((
329 {{code language="none"}}
330 org.xwiki.extension.ExtensionManagerConfiguration: Method 'public java.util.Collection getExtensionRepositoryDescriptors()' has been added to an interface
331 org.xwiki.extension.repository.ExtensionRepository: Method 'public org.xwiki.extension.repository.ExtensionRepositoryDescriptor getDescriptor()' has been added to an interface
332 org.xwiki.extension.repository.ExtensionRepositoryFactory: Method 'public org.xwiki.extension.repository.ExtensionRepository createRepository(org.xwiki.extension.repository.ExtensionRepositoryDescriptor)' has been added to an interface

335 {{/code}}
336 )))
337 * IRCBot is still a young API. Added a new initialize() method to support installing the IRC Bot application in a subwiki:(((
338 {{code}}
339 org.xwiki.ircbot.IRCBot: Method 'public void initialize(java.lang.String)' has been added to an interface
340 {{/code}}
