XWiki Enterprise 2.7 Release Candidate 1

Version 11.1 by Thomas Mortagne on 2017/03/24

First and hopefully last release candidate of the XWiki Enterprise 2.7 version (Roadmap). Note that 2.7 is planned to be the last major release in the 2.x cycle. As such, there are very little new features it this release.

New and Noteworthy (since XWiki Enterprise 2.6)

Ability to set a color theme on each space

Starting XWiki Enterprise 2.7, we now offer the option to set separate color themes on each space.

To do that, you need to have admin rights.

For setting a color theme on a desired space, you have to go to WebHome or any page in the space, and from the top menu click Administer Space. Then, go to Presentation.

Select the desired theme from the list, and click Save.


UNC support in XWiki Syntax 2.1

When using the wiki syntax it's now possible to reference UNC paths. For example:



  • Support search on space name in the REST API.
  • Security: Fixed a few XSS bugs.
  • Performance: Better clientside caching of some default skin extensions.


  • The following translations have been updated: de, fr, ru, sv, zh, zh_TW

Known issues

Backward Compatibility and Migration Notes

General Notes

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,....

You may also want to import the default wiki XAR in order to benefit from the improvements listed above.

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.
