5 This is the release notes for [[XWiki Commons>>http://commons.xwiki.org]], [[XWiki Rendering>>http://rendering.xwiki.org]], [[XWiki Platform>>http://platform.xwiki.org]] and [[XWiki Enterprise>>http://enterprise.xwiki.org]]. They share the same release notes as they are released together and have the same version.

7 This release brings many improvements to the Mail Application and its API, including support for mail throttling. A new 'Wikis' category is available in the administration that groups together sections with wiki-related configuration options. Other smaller improvements (23) and a few bug fixes (15) complete this release. Would be great if you can give it a try and report whatever issues you may find so that we can fix them before the 6.4 final release.

13 == Mail Sender API Improvements ==
14
15 * You can now specify the delay to wait between each mail being sent, in milliseconds. This is done to support mail throttling and not be considered a spammer by mail servers. For example if you wish to wait 10 seconds (if not specified the default is 8 seconds, which is 450 mails per hour), set the following in your ##xwiki.properties##:(((
16 {{code language="none"}}
17 mail.sender.sendWaitTime = 10000
18 {{/code}}
19
20 The configuration parameter can also be changed from the [[Mail Admin UI>>extensions:Extension.Mail Application]]:

23 )))
24 * We now save both an error summary and a full error description when a mail fails to be sent when using the Database Mail Listener. This allows to see the full stack trace of the problem to more easily debug it.(((
25 {{image reference="sendmailerror.png"/}}
26 )))
27 * The Mail Type is now displayed in the [[Mail Sender Status Admin UI>>extensions:Extension.Mail Application]]:(((
28 {{image reference="mailtype.png"/}}
29 )))
30 * The ##MailResult.isSent()## API has been renamed to ##MailResult.isProcessed()## to avoid thinking that it'll return true if all mails have been sent successfully. What it does is simply return true when all mails have been processed, whether they've been sent successfully or not.
31 * A new scripting API has been added to set the mail type:(((
32 {{code language="none"}}
33 $message.setType("Some type")
34 {{/code}}
35 )))
36 * In the [[Mail Sender Status Admin UI>>extensions:Extension.Mail Application]] we now only display mails sent by the current wiki unless we're on the main wiki.
37 * The [[Mail Application>>extensions:Extension.Mail Application]] doesn't require Programming Rights for installation anymore.
38 * Account Validation email results are now saved and visible in the [[Mail Application>>extensions:Extension.Mail Application]].
39 * Some new [[Mail Sender Storage script services>>extensions:Extension.Mail Sender Storage]] have been added: ability to delete mail statuses for a single mail and for a whole batch, and ability to load mail statuses with criteria.
40
41 == Wikis ==
42
43 * A "Wikis" category has been created in the administration, where the configuration have been moved and split in different sections:(((
44 |=Left menu|=Right menu
45 |{{image reference="AdminWikis.png"/}}|{{image reference="AdminWikis2.png"/}}
46 )))
47
48 == Extension Manager incompatible exceptions ==
49
50 When trying to install an incompatible extension (i.e. you are running XWiki 6.2.4 and want to install FAQ Application 6.3), you are now displayed a proper error instead of having to read through the install log to understand what went wrong, and you are instructed to use the ##Description > Stable Versions## section to manually (for now) find a compatible version of the extension that you want to install.
51
52 {{image reference="incompatibleExtensionError.png"/}}
53
54 == Miscellaneous ==
55
56 * A click to the Document Index does not lead to an other space anymore.
57 * [[extensions:Extension.Tag Cloud Macro]] has now a new parameter (spaces) to display a tag cloud from multiple spaces.

62
63 == Miscellaneous ==
64
65 * You can now control in which order the sections added via the [[ConfigurableClass>>extensions:Extension.Administration Application||anchor="HFieldsyoucandefine"]] are displayed in the administration.
66 * New APIs to generate unescaped display user name:
67 ** ##com.xpn.xwiki.XWiki#getPlainUserName(DocumentReference userReference, XWikiContext context)##
68 ** ##com.xpn.xwiki.XWiki#getUserName(DocumentReference userReference, String format, boolean link, boolean escapeXML, XWikiContext context)##
69 ** ##com.xpn.xwiki.api.XWiki#getPlainUserName(DocumentReference userReference)##

86 = Backward Compatibility and Migration Notes =
87
88 == General Notes ==
89
90 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.
91
92 == API Breakages ==
93
94 The following APIs were modified since XWiki 6.3:
95
96 * It's very unlikely that this class is implemented by anything else and it does not make much sense to not have this method, since this is not really a cache behind it but a Map that keep engines forever it may create a memory leak on a big farm running for a long time(((
