XWiki 8.1

  • Continue CKEditor work. The goal is to be ready to replace the GWT WYSIWYG by the CKEditor integration before the end of 8.1 and bundle it in 8.1. The default would still be the GWT one but a configuration option would allow to make CK the default + it should be possible to have both editors available for testing. - Marius
  • Develop an SSO authenticator to authenticate on an XWiki instance based on users located on another XWiki instance (basically if you’re authenticated on XWiki instance 1 then you’d be authenticated on XWiki instance 2). + possibly oAuth authentication - Thomas
  • Business as usual: Bug Fixing Days every Thursday + polishing of existing features - All
  • Finish Migration Guide to XWiki 7.4+ + Nested Spaces migrator - Guillaume
  • Finish work related to the minimal distribution/XWiki flavor - Thomas
  • In addition here’s a list of JIRA we’d like to fix (time permitting):


  • 8.1M1: 4 April 2016 5 April 2016 (3w) accept
  • 8.1M2: 25 April 2016 27 April 2016 (3w) accept
