11 [[Full list of issues fixed and Dashboard for <version>>>http://jira.xwiki.org/secure/Dashboard.jspa?selectPageId=<fill id here>]].
12
13 == Menu Application ==
14
15 Taking advantage of the ability to have LESS inside our [[StyleSheetExtensions>>extensions:Extension.Skin Extension Plugin||anchor="HUseLESS"]], we improved the [[Menu Application>>extensions:Extension.Menu Application]], on Flamingo based skins, making it responsive and also adapting its styling according to the active [[Flamingo Theme>>extensions:Extension.Flamingo Theme Application]].
16 Colibri based skins preserve the initial styling.

26 == Mail Feature ==
27
28 * The mail feature has a new Category in the Admin UI (see the [[Mail Application>>extensions:Extension.Mail Application]] for details).(((
29 {{image reference="emailcategory.png"/}}
30 )))
31 * There's now the possibility to configure default BCC addresses which will be added by default to all emails sent using the [[Mail Sender API>>extensions:Extension.Mail Sender API]].(((
32 {{image reference="emailsend.png"/}}
33 )))
34 * The [[Mail Sender API>>extensions:Extension.Mail Sender API]] now checks for permission before sending emails, when using it from scripts (i.e. when using the Mail Sender Script Service). There are currently 2 possible strategies that you configure in your ##xwiki.properties## file(((
35 {{code language="none"}}
36 #-# [Since 6.4M2]
37 #-# Defines which authorization checks are done when sending mails using the Mail Sender Script Service.
38 #-# Example of valid values:
39 #-# - "programmingrights": the current document must have Programming Rights
40 #-# - "alwaysallow": no check is performed. This is useful when running XWiki in a secure environment where we
41 #-# want to allow all users to be able to send emails through the Script Service.
42 #-# The default is:
43 # mail.sender.scriptServiceCheckerHint = programmingrights
44 {{/code}}
45 )))
46
47 == Miscellaneous ==
48
49 * A list of icons supported by XWiki have been created, with mapping for Silk and Font Awesome. Which means that we now propose a list of icons that are both present in Silk and Font Awesome.
50 * The list off columns in the UserDirectory customization screen is now sorted alphabetically

54 = For Developers =
55
56 == Mail Sender Permissions ==
57
58 There's now a [[pluggable permission checker>>extensions:Extension.Mail Sender API||anchor="HPluggablePermissionChecker"]] used for checking if a mail should be sent, when using the Mail Sender Script Service. Two implementations are provided (see above) but you can also provide your own implementation by implementing the ##org.xwiki.mail.script.ScriptServicePermissionChecker## component role:
59
60 {{code language="java"}}
61 @Role
62 @Unstable
63 public interface ScriptServicePermissionChecker
64 {
65 /**
66 * @param message the message to check for authorization
67 * @exception MessagingException if the message is not allowed to be sent
68 */
69 void check(MimeMessage message) throws MessagingException;
70 }
71 {{/code}}
72
73 For example you could imagine implementing checks on the size of the email or who the recipients are, run the content of the mail through some filter, etc.
74
75 == Icon Picker ==
76
77 An [[icon picker>>extensions:Extension.Icon Theme Application||anchor="#HIconPicker"]] has been created to help users selecting an image in the list of supported icons.
78
79 (((
80 {{image reference="icon-picker.png"/}}
81 )))
82
83 This picker is already used in [[Application Within Minutes>>extensions:Extension.App Within Minutes Application]] for the application's icon selection.
84
85 == Skin Extensions ==
86
87 [[Now you can use LESS in your Skin Extensions!>>extensions:Extension.Skin Extension Plugin||anchor="HUseLESS"]]. You just need to set the new property "Content Type" to LESS inside your Skin Extension object:
88
89 (((
90 {{image reference="contentTypeLESS.png"/}}.
91 )))
92
93 == Admin ConfigurableClass ==
94
95 The [[##ConfigurableClass## mechanism>>extensions:Extension.Administration Application||anchor="HMakingyourapplicationconfigurablewithConfigurableClass"]] has been improved to be able to contribute new categories in the Admin UI. For example the "Email" Category in the following screenshot is contributed through a ##ConfigurableClass##:
96
97 {{image reference="emailcategory.png"/}}
98
99 It was configured using:
100
101 {{image reference="emailconfigurableclass.png"/}}

107 == Upgrades ==
108
109 The following dependencies have been upgraded:
110
111 * [[JGroups 3.6.1>>http://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XWIKI-11523]]
112 * [[Pygments 2.0.1>>http://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XWIKI-11522]]
113 * [[Joda-Time 2.6>>http://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XWIKI-11516]]

115 * [[Bootswatch 3.3.1+2>>http://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XWIKI-11569]]
116
117 == Miscellaneous ==
118
119 * It's now possible to know what namespace a ComponentManager instance is associated with by casting it to ##org.xwiki.component.manager.NamespacedComponentManager##. See [[Component Module documentation>>http://extensions.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Extension/Component+Module||anchor="HNamespacedComponentManager"]].
120 * Added getCurrentWikiDescriptor() method to the wiki API and script service to be consistent with the existing getCurrentWikiId() method
121 * The ClassLoader automatically set as Thread ClassLoader is now dynamic meaning that any modification of the context wiki will automatically change the actual Thread ClassLoader. It used to be set to whatever was the wiki in the URL at ExecutionContext init.

145 == General Notes ==
146
147 When upgrading make sure you compare your ##xwiki.cfg##, ##xwiki.properties## and ##web.xml## files with the newest version since some configuration parameters may have been modified or 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.
