5 This is the last major release of the 2.x [[development cycle>>dev:Community.DevelopmentPractices#HReleaseCyclesandReleaseStrategy]] (there will still be bugfix releases on the 2.7.x branch, if needed). The next release is going to be 3.0.

7 This is a stabilization release, with no major new features to highlight.
8
9 = New and Noteworthy (since XWiki Enterprise 2.6) =
10
11 == Ability to set a color theme on each space ==
12
13 Starting XWiki Enterprise 2.7, we now offer the option to set separate color themes on each space.
14
15 For setting a color theme on a desired space, you have to go to the space Administration (you need to have admin rights on that space). Then, go to Presentation. Select the desired theme from the list, and click Save.

18
19 {{warning}}Per space color theme support is currently limited to the main Colibri skin, and not for dynamically pulled skin extensions. Some aspects of the interface might still use the global color theme. You can manually enable passing the color theme to a skin extension by using:
20
21 {{code language="none"}}
22 $xwiki.ssx.use('Main.Activity', {'colorTheme' : $themeDocFullName})
23 {{/code}}
24
25 This workaround only works for document skin extensions (##ssx##), and not for filesystem extension (##ssfx##).
26 {{/warning}}
27
28 == UNC support in XWiki Syntax 2.1 ==
29
30 When using the wiki syntax it's now possible to reference [[UNC paths>>http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Path_(computing)#Uniform_Naming_Convention]]. For example:
31
32 {{code}}
33 [[label>>unc:\\ComputerName\SharedFolder\Resource]]
34 {{/code}}
35
36 Note that the 2.1 syntax is still marked as //experimental//, and it will continue to change.
37
38 == Miscellaneous ==
39
40 * Support search on space name in the REST API.
41 * Support for customizing the office export process.
42 * Security: Fixed a few XSS bugs.
43 * Performance: Better clientside caching of some default skin extensions.
44
45 == Translations ==
46
47 * The following translations have been updated: ##de##, ##fr##, ##it##, ##ro##, ##ru##, ##sv##, ##zh##, ##zh_TW##.
48
49 = Known issues =
50
51 * [[Bugs we know about>>https://jira.xwiki.org/secure/IssueNavigator.jspa?reset=true&&type=1&pid=10010&resolution=-1&sorter/field=updated&sorter/order=DESC]]
52
53 = Backward Compatibility and Migration Notes =
54
55 == General Notes ==
56
57 {{warning}}
58 If you're running in a multiwiki setup you'll also need to define the property //xwiki.store.migration.databases=all// to your //xwiki.cfg// file or explicitly name all databases to be migrated as in //xwiki.store.migration.databases=db1,db2,...//.
59 {{/warning}}
60
61 You may also want to [[import the default wiki XAR>>Main.Download]] in order to benefit from the improvements listed above.
62
63 {{warning}}
64 Always make sure you compare your //xwiki.cfg// file with the newest version since some configuration parameters were added. Note 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.
65 {{/warning}}
66
67 == API Breakages ==
68
