This is the release notes for XWiki Commons, XWiki Rendering, XWiki Platform and XWiki Enterprise. They share the same release notes as they are released together and have the same version.

New and Noteworthy (since XWiki 7.2M3)

Full list of issues fixed and Dashboard for .

Flamingo

Following the introduction of the Nested Documents feature, we have made some modifications to the Flamingo skin:

  • For non terminal documents, we have introduced a "Page Administration", where you will find settings that concern the document and its children (it's actually the old space administration behind the scene). But we have also introduced 2 sections for setting rights on these pages:
    • a section to set rights for the document only.
    • a section to set rights for the document and its children.
  • For terminal documents, nothing changes, you can change the access rights of the page in the "edit" menu. The only addition is a "Administer Parent" link in the "More actions" menu to administer the parent page (which again is the space administration behind the scene).
  • The create action has been relooked (with the introduction of the "page type" field) and proposes to import an office document.
  • A new "children" viewer is now accessible in the "more actions" menu, along with the other viewers.
  • For Terminal Pages, a new "siblings" viewer is present, which replaces the old "space index" feature.

Solr Search

You can now search for nested documents using the Solr Search Application. The display of the search result location has been updated to support nested documents.

searchResultLocation.png

The "Space" facet has been replaced with a "Location" facet that supports nested documents. This allows you to search in a specific location in the page hierarchy.

searchLocationFacet.png

The "Page" facet has been removed by default because it doesn't bring value in the context of the nested documents: all non-terminal documents have the same name 'WebHome'. The "Wiki" facet is displayed by default only on the main wiki and only if you have multiple wikis.

Miscellaneous

  • It's now possible create new FAQs in Nested Spaces.
  • A memory dump is automatically created in the data/ folder when an Out Of Memory error is throw in the Jetty package.
  • The Activity Stream now also displays activity for Nested Spaces.
  • Skin editor now properly works for a nested skin document

Miscellaneous

  • A new "siblings" viewer has been added, accessible both with ?viewer=siblings and ?xpage=siblings.
  • For ?viewer=children, ?xpage=children, ?viewer=siblings and ?xpage=siblings a new displayHidden parameter has been added. By default, the hidden documents are not displayed unless the user's configuration overwrites this.

Backward Compatibility and Migration Notes

General Notes

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.
