The XWiki development process uses JIRA for listing all tasks to be implemented and all bugs to be fixed.

You'll find there the dates and versions planned for issues to be fixed and hence the XWiki roadmaps. There's also a release calendar listing all known dates for future releases. Please understand that these dates are often tentative since XWiki's development is open source and lots of committers/contributors are working in their free time on XWiki.

If you're interested to help out check the contributing page.

We're releasing several top level projects together and as such we've decided to have the same Roadmap page for all of them. Thus this page contains the roadmap for the following projects: XWiki Commons, XWiki Rendering and XWiki Platform.

General goals for all releases:

  • More tests
  • Better javadoc
  • More documentation on xwiki.org
  • Code cleanup/refactoring

Already implemented roadmaps can be found in the archives.

Note that all planned release dates are also entered in the Calendar on JIRA.

XWiki 10.11

  • All: BFD (20%)
  • Thomas/Vincent: Improve STAMP KPIs (20%)
  • All: Bug fixing/small polishing focus on items added during 10.x
  • Marius/Adel: Auto complete of references in WYSIWYG Macro Dialog (+ grouping feature so that users don't get both "page" and "reference" at the same time + "deprecated"/"priority" to show "page" more proeminently than "reference")
  • Thomas: More async/caching of UIX.
  • Thomas: Bug: Unsupported character exception is warned in console when downloading attachment
  • Simon: Import: make it work with new versions of Libre Office (idea: use a more recent fork of jodconverter, we identified one and check if we need to merge changes we did in our fork)

Dates:

  • 10.11RC1: 17th of Dec 2018
  • 10.11Final: 24th-31st of Dec 2018 (I’m putting a range since it’s Christmas and we don’t know who’ll be there)

XWiki 10.10

BAU:

  • Thomas/Vincent: Improve STAMP KPIs (20%)
  • All: BFD (20%)

Outstanding work:

  • Thomas: continue work on performance (started in 10.4). Goal: go back to XWiki 8.x performance!
    • Specifically commit the work already done on the asynchronous framework/macro + apply it for UIX + panels + other places - Status: work already done mostly, will require a few more days
    • Other performance-related topics
  • Simon/Marius (moved from 10.8 roadmap): Macro inline editing in WYSIWYG
    • Work mostly done but there are still some leftovers, especially in XRENDERING-518 which is proving harder than expected. Since it’s already late in the release, it’ll be committed in 10.10RC1.
  • Adel (moved from 10.8 roadmap): finish applying Autocomplete on reference everywhere,
    • We have one issue that is in 10.9. The rest is ready but will be committed in 10.10 only (too late for 10.9).
  • Simon: Page Move/Renaming: don't allow and/or warn when moving pages containing xclass definitions. Use case: prevent users from breaking AWM apps they created
    • Work finished but too late to be in 10.9. Will now be in 10.10
  • Adel/Marius (moved from 10.8 roadmap): Auto complete of references in WYSIWYG Macro Dialog (+ grouping feature so that users don't get both "page" and "reference" at the same time + "deprecated"/"priority" to show "page" more proemintenly than "reference")
  • Guillaume: fix outstanding issues for notifications

New work:

  • Simon: Button to remove all deleted pages/attachments in a single click

Best effort (if time permits, the items below are previous leftovers from previous roadmaps or items originally planned for 10.10):

  • Marius/Adel/Simon: ConfigurableClass doesn't support page level configuration ccse
  • Marius/Adel/Simon: Import: make it work with new versions of Libre Office (idea: use a more recent fork of jodconverter, we identified one and check if we need to merge changes we did in our fork)
  • Marius/Adel/Simon: Display Reference of documents to copy paste
  • Marius/Adel/Simon: Improve the XClass picker when in object edit mode (make it like the Add Macro dialog for WYSIWYG editor)
  • Thomas: work on some items to make the upgrade experience simpler + unattended upgrades (ability to upgrade XWiki from the command line without interaction). Use the result of Caty's investigation from XWiki 10.8 period.

Dates

  • 10.10RC1: 19th of November 2018
  • 10.10Final: 26th of November 2018
