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.

This is the first milestone of the XWiki 4.3 version (Roadmap). This release brings absolutely nothing? really? Oh, it's not released yet...

New and Noteworthy (since XWiki 4.2)

Workspace Templates

Similar to what admins were doing with the WikiManager application, we noticed the need for the Workspace Application to allow users to choose what type of workspace they want to create.



  • XWiki's multiwiki feature (a.k.a "virtual mode") now works with the HSQLDB database
  • It's now possible to configure the LDAP timeout. See xwiki.authentication.ldap.timeout property in xwiki.cfg file.

Important Bug Fixes

  • Fixed failure to import Office documents when using Filesystem Attachments.

See the full list of JIRA issues fixed in this release.

Backward Compatibility and Migration Notes

General Notes

You may also want to import the default wiki XAR in order to benefit from all the improvements listed above.

Always make sure you compare your xwiki.cfg and files with the newest version since some configuration parameters were added. Note that you should add so that XWiki will attempt to automatically migrate your current database to the new schema. Make sure you backup your Database before doing anything.
