5 First milestone of the XWiki Enterprise 3.3 version ([[Roadmap>>Main.Roadmap]]). Since we're getting closer to the end of the 3.x cycle, there are fewer new features in this release, most of the changes being internal.
7 {{error}}
8 We've found that this release is a lot more memory-hungry than XWiki Enterprise 3.1 and before. The technical reason is because we're caching the rendering of pages in the document cache and [[those objects are very big>>]] (up to 27MB for a very large page). In XWiki Enterprise 3.3 RC1+ we've optimized the space taken in memory by those objects. As a consequence we recommend using a reduced document cache size with this version and/or increasing the memory allocated to the JVM.

11 = New and Noteworthy (since XWiki Enterprise 3.2 version) =
13 == Preview of the upcoming application designer ==
15 A key element of the Application Within Minutes feature, the application designer makes its debut in this release with a preview of the new class editor. While not ready for production yet, you're invited to test it and provide feedback on the interaction and user experience, by [[commenting on the issue>>]] or [[replying to the email thread>>]].
17 [[[[image:classEditor.png||width="500px" style="border:1px solid #EFEFEF"]]>>attach:classEditor.png]]
19 You can give it a try by simply adding an object of type ##XWiki.DocumentSheetBinding## to an existing class or a new document, setting the ##sheet## property to ##AppWithinMinutes.ClassEditSheet## and then editing that document in "Inline form" edit mode.
21 == Debian packages ==
23 Starting with 3.3 Milestone 1 Debian packages and repositories are released.
25 You can add one of the following list files to ##/etc/debian/apt/source.list.d/##:
26 * : all stable releases starting with 3.3 (so nothing right now)
27 * : all releases starting with 3.3 Milestone 1
28 * : all snapshots release starting with 3.3 branch
30 {{code}}
31 sudo wget -P /etc/apt/sources.list.d
32 {{/code}}
34 == LDAP user membership improvements ==
36 Organization unit and search filter support have been added in the group membership mapping settings. To use them, replace the group DN with an organization unit DN or with any search filter.
38 == Attachments improvements ==
40 Since the filesystem attachment storage allows uploading very large files, a necessary improvement is to be able to pause and resume downloads. Starting with this version, it is possible to do so, since the ##/download/## action now respects the ##Range## HTTP header.
42 Several bugs with downloading attachments when the filesystem storage is enabled have also been fixed, making this feature ready for production use.
44 == Link Checker ==
46 It's now possible to tell XWiki to check for validity of external links found in the Wiki (to verify broken links for example). This is implemented through a [[Link Checker Transformation>>rendering:Main.Transformations#HLinkCheckerTransformation]].
48 It's not enabled by default. To enable it, edit the file and add ##linkchecker## to the list of transformations to execute. For example:
50 {{code}}
51 rendering.transformations = macro, icon, linkchecker
52 {{/code}}
54 Note that there's no UI for it yet (planned for 3.3 Milestone 2) but the Link States can be access through a Script Service. For example from Velocity:
56 {{code}}
57 {{velocity}}
58 #set ($states = $services.linkchecker.getLinkStates())
59 {{/velocity}}
60 {{/code}}
62 = For Developers =
64 == Script services for Application Manager and Wiki Manager ==
66 There are script services now available for the old application and wiki manager plugins. You can access them via ##$services.applicationmanager## and ##$services.wikimanager##, and call all the methods previously exposed by their respective plugin APIs. For the moment the plugins are still there, with the script services just bridging them to the new prefered way of accessing APIs from Velocity scripts.
68 == Cache improvements ==
70 Several bugfixes and improvements have been committed, affecting the rendering cache, the cache macro, and the cache infrastructure in general. An important change is the introduction of an infinispan-based cache implementation, replacing JBossCache as the default one.
72 == New xdom+xml syntax ==
74 The rendering now come with two reference XML based syntaxes which are the exact representation of rendering events.
76 Two variants are provided:
77 * 1.0: a stable syntax which represent the rendering events in the state they had when this version has been released. If anything change a new version of the syntax will be created (1.1, etc.)
78 * current: always in sync with rendering events whatever the version but also mean that it can change anytime without warning, only use that for internal use when you are sure you will render and parse with the same version of XWiki Rendering
80 == XE and XEM XAR changes ==
82 The XAR plugin by default doesn't bundle dependencies anymore, so the XE and XEM XARs now come in two variants:
84 * the old ##xwiki-enterprise-wiki## module has been renamed into [[##xwiki-enterprise-ui##>>]], and produces a XAR only with the documents specific to XWiki Enterprise, without dependencies;
85 * the full XAR with all the dependencies bundled in it is now produced by the [[##xwiki-enterprise-ui-all##>>]] module.
87 == Upgrades ==
89 The following dependencies have been upgraded:
91 * CSS4J 0.13
92 * Groovy 1.8.3
93 * JGroups 2.12.2
94 * reflections 0.9.6
95 * Selenium 2.11
96 * SLF4J 1.6.3
98 == Miscellaneous ==
100 * Make it simple to add Icon Transformation mappings when using the Rendering in standalone mode
101 * Add support for being able to override components more than once TODO: Document it and linke to the documentation
102 * Bundle the Icon and WikiWord Transformations in the Rendering Standalone JAR
103 * Comments Macro is not bundled in the Rendering Standalone JAR
104 * Allow setting time to live and max entries when using the Cache macro
105 * IRC Bot application improvements
106 * Move to JBoss Infinispan as default cache implementation
107 * Application Manager and Wiki Manager plugins now expose a ScriptService and don't need to be added as plugin in xwiki.cfg file anymore. You can access they using {{code language="velocity"}}$services.applicationmanager{{/code}} and {{code language="velocity"}}$services.wikimanager{{/code}}.
109 == Translations ==
111 The following translations have been updated:
113 {{language codes="fr, it, sv, uk"/}}

137 = Test Report =
139 You can check the [[manual test report>>TestReports.ManualTestReportXE33M1#<anchor to test report>]] to learn about what was tested and the results on various browsers.
141 = Backward Compatibility and Migration Notes =
143 == General Notes ==
145 {{warning}}
146 If you're running in a multiwiki setup you'll also need to define the property // to your //xwiki.cfg// file or explicitly name all databases to be migrated as in //,db2,...//.
147 {{/warning}}
149 You may also want to [[import the default wiki XAR>>Main.Download]] in order to benefit from all the improvements listed above.
151 {{warning}}
152 Always make sure you compare your ##xwiki.cfg## and files with the newest version since some configuration parameters were added. Note that you should add so that XWiki will attempt to automatically migrate your current database to the new schema. Make sure you backup your Database before doing anything.
153 {{/warning}}
155 == Issues specific to XWiki Enterprise 3.3 Milestone 1 ==
157 === Default Cache implementation changed ===
159 As mentioned above, a new cache implementation based on the successor of JBossCache, Infinispan, has been implemented and selected as the default cache provider. Any custom code that deals with caches should be checked for eventual incompatibilities.
161 === Maven XAR plugin behavior changed ===
163 The Maven plugin used for packaging XAR modules has been changed so that by default it doesn't bundle the XAR dependencies. This is reflected in the default XE wiki, which now comes in two variants, described [[above>>#HXEandXEMXARchanges]]. If you're counting on the old behavior for your custom projects, you can configure the plugin to bundle dependencies by setting the ##includeDependencies## property to ##true##.
165 == API Breakages ==
167 Internals of the filesystem attachment store were moved around, there are not API and were never intended that way and not useful as API but clirr sees them as API so it is technically a break. See: [[XWIKI-7085>>]].
169 The following APIs were modified since <project> <version - 1>:
