15 +Java 8 is now required to run XWiki. If you use an earlier version of Java, you'll get an error while starting XWiki such as:

32 +== Sandbox Relocation ==

34 +The Sandbox pages were previously accessible through a link in the Quick Links Panel. This link has been removed and instead a Sandbox entry has been added in the [[Applications Panel>>extensions:Extension.Panels Application||anchor="HApplicationPanel"]].

38 +In addition the message about the shortcut key to use the "Jump To Page" feature has been moved to the new Tips Panel.

44 +== Extension Manager improvements ==
45 +
46 +=== Repair invalid extensions ===
47 +
48 +The Extension Manager now tries to repair automatically any invalid dependency and also provides a "Repair" button to repair specific invalid extensions.

54 +=== Apply namespaces constraints in the UI ===
55 +
56 +The namespaces constraints introduced in 8.0 are now taken into account in the UI which won't propose an option that will fail in the install plan.
57 +
58 +=== Move to farm ===
59 +
60 +It's now possible to install on farm an extension installed in a subwiki directly from the UI.
61 +
62 +{{image reference="[email protected]"/}}
63 +
64 +=== Dependency on root ===
65 +
66 +When using Extension Manager from main wiki it's now allowed to install/upgrade an extension which require upgrading/install farm level dependency. It also automatically propose to install on farm a new dependency which indicate it as constraint. This will make easier to deal with extension have an API that have to be installed on root and a XAR extension UI that should usualy be install on a wiki.
67 +
68 +It's still forbidden from subwiki in the standard UI (any script with programming right can enable it in the install request). That might change in the future but need to be discussed more.
69 +
70 +=== Managed dependencies ===
71 +
72 +Extension Manager now support the concept of managed dependencies. It's pretty much the same thing that the {{code language="xml"}}<dependencyManagement>{{/code}} in Maven.
73 +
74 +It still need to be supported in the Repository Application. See [[http://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XWIKI-13281]].
75 +
76 +== Flavors improvements ==
77 +
78 +* Known flavors are not validated anymore before ending up in the flavor picker of the Distribution Wizard. This speed up a lot the use case where you just want to install default XWiki Flavor or XE UI. See [[extensions:Extension.Flavor Module||anchor="HKnownflavors"]] for more details.
79 +* Flavors are now also searched in the local repository. This makes easier to embedded flavors in a distribution for setups with no network access.
80 +
81 +== Active Installs ==
82 +
83 +New widget displayed on the dashboard to see the number of Active Installs count per XWiki Cycle version:

29 29  * The Annotations Application's Administration section has been updated to present the exception spaces as "locations", using the ##documentTree## macro. The behavior has not been changed.(((
