5 This is the release notes for [[XWiki Commons>>http://commons.xwiki.org]], [[XWiki Rendering>>http://rendering.xwiki.org]], [[XWiki Platform>>http://platform.xwiki.org]] and [[XWiki Enterprise>>http://enterprise.xwiki.org]]. They share the same release notes as they are released together and have the same version.
6
7 This release provides a great stabilization of the Flamingo Skin, and includes new themes and some improvements to manage them.
8
9 It also contains a new mail API and module to replace the old mailsender plugin, a new dynamic tree widget that is progressively replacing all existing trees in XWiki (Document Index, Navigation Panels, etc...), some improvements on the Extension Manager as well as on the User Directory and the Applications Panel.
10
11 Efforts have been made on the performances side, with good results on view mode (except on the first loaded-page). We reach the same performances as 5.4.6, which was not the case during the 6.x cycle until now. This is a first milestone to get even better!
12
13 Finally, and like every releases, a lot of bugs have been fixed.

35 == Flamingo ==
36
37 {{info}}
38 The Flamingo skin was introduced as experimental in XWiki 6.0 & 6.1 and has been deemed usable in XWiki 6.2. However we're still tuning details. It happens that we did not all agree on the location of the "Add" button (some wanted it inside the content, next to the "Edit" buttons and others wanted it back at the top - You can [[follow the discussion here>>http://markmail.org/message/jqbcj4p4ryc56sms]] if you're interested ;)). Thus we've decided for the moment to put it back at the top where it was in the Colibri skin in order to not force our users to learn a new location for the moment. This is still a discussion in progress and if you have inputs and preferences please do not hesitate to let us know on the [[XWiki Users Mailing List>>dev:Community.MailingLists]] or on the [[related Issue>>https://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XWIKI-11167]]. Thanks!

41 * The 'Add' button has been moved back to the top bar and the search bar to the right:(((
42 {{image reference="ReleaseNotesXWiki622@flamingo-add.png" width="60%"/}}
43 )))
44 * When you click on the 'add' button, the order of the choices have been inverted, to propose to create a page first, then a space, and finally a wiki:(((
45 {{image reference="ReleaseNotesXWiki622@flamingo-add-options.png"/}}
46 )))
47 * The Wiki/Space/Page buttons in the top bar have been changed and are no longer split into two parts. You do not need to click the arrow specifically any more to open the contextual menu:(((
48 {{image reference="ReleaseNotesXWiki622@flamingo-menubar.png"/}}

68 {{image reference="ReleaseNotesXWiki622@flamingo.png"/}}
69 )))
70 * The "Add" button has now a default action to create a new page. You can still create other kind of contents (Wiki, Space) by using the arrow, just like we do with the different "edit" actions.(((

74 === Flamingo Themes Application ===
75
76 Now, when you click on "Manage color theme" in the Administration, you reach the [[new application to manage the Flamingo Themes>>extensions:Extension.Flamingo Theme Application]]:
77
78 {{image reference="ReleaseNotes.ReleaseNotesXWiki624@FlamingoThemeWebHome.png" width="50%"/}}
79
80 You can use it to change the current theme, modify any theme or create new ones.
81
82 We have also added 3 new themes: Marina, Garden and Kitty.

113 == Panels Application ==
114
115 It is now possible to select which applications are displayed in the App Bar, and which are not:
116
117 {{image reference="ReleaseNotesXWiki63M2@customizable-app-bar.png"/}}
118
119 == Document Tree Macro ==
120
121 We introduce [[a new wiki macro>>extensions:Extension.Document Tree Macro]] to display the hierarchy of documents:
122
123 {{code language="none"}}
124 {{documentTree /}}
125 {{/code}}
126
127 {{image reference="ReleaseNotesXWiki63RC1@docHierarchyTree.png"/}}
128
129 === Document Index Tree ===
130
131 The new [[Document Tree Macro>>extensions:Extension.Document Tree Macro]] is now used in the Wiki document index.
132
133 {{image reference="ReleaseNotesXWiki63RC1@index-alldocs-tree.png"/}}
134
135 === Navigation Panel ===
136
137 We also changed the [[Navigation Panel>>extensions:Extension.Panels Application||anchor="HNavigationPanel"]] to use the new [[Document Tree Macro>>extensions:Extension.Document Tree Macro]].
138
139 {{info}}
140 Very importantly the old Navigation Panel was a performance hog on large wikis and it's not longer the case (since nodes are now opened dynamically and not all documents are loaded in memory)!
141 {{/info}}
142
143 {{image reference="ReleaseNotesXWiki63RC1@navigationPanel.png"/}}
144
145 == Miscellaneous ==
146
147 * The default color themes (DefaultColorTheme and FlamingoDefaultTheme) have been renamed Azure and Charcoal.
148 * In the select field of the 'color theme' property, in the administration, the color themes are now ordered by name.
149 * In the administration, clicking the "Customize" button for customizing a Skin or a Color Theme now opens the page in edit mode.
150 * Improved L&F when a template fails to render:(((
151 {{image reference="ReleaseNotesXWiki63M1@templateerror.png" width="650px"/}}
152 )))
153 * We have created dedicated groups for Colibri and Flamingo Themes inside the Administration. Every themes can be used with both skins but they looks better when they are used with the corresponding theme.(((
154 {{image reference="ReleaseNotesXWiki63M1@ColorThemeDisplayer.png"/}}
155 )))
156 * The start/stop shell scripts provided with the Standalone Distribution have been improved to display usage information when an invalid parameter is passed or when the ##-h## or ##~-~-help## parameters are passed. Also note that the start script doesn't stop anymore a running XWiki instance if the ##-k## or ##~-~-kill## parameter is passed (this parameter has been removed).
157 * It's now possible to configure the maximum number of search results to be returned from a search operation using ##xwiki.authentication.ldap.maxresults## property in ##xwiki.cfg## file. See [[LDAP documentation>>platform:AdminGuide.Authentication||anchor="HGenericLDAPconfiguration"]].
158 * The "Empty is today" option on Date fields of classes created with Application Within Minutes is now working as expected. See [[XWIKI-10296>>https://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XWIKI-10296]]
159 * Office macro can now take a URL as input. See [[extensions:Extension.Office Macro]] for more details
160 * The standalone distribution now uses Jetty 9.2.3.v20140905 (was using version 8.1.15.v20140411 in XWiki 6.3-milestone-1). This should be transparent for the user since XWiki provides its own start/stop scripts around Jetty.
161 * The Delete Space feature now lists the documents inside the space you are going to delete. This should help people differentiate between the UI of Delete Page and the UI of Delete Space so that fewer mistakes occur when not paying much attention:(((
162 {{image reference="ReleaseNotesXWiki63M2@deleteSpaceListDocuments.png"/}}
163 )))
164 * Updated [[XAR export URL format>>platform:Features.Exports||anchor="HXARExport"]] to allow exporting a full space, a full wiki, or any list of pages matching a pattern. For example:(((
165 {{code language="none"}}
166 http://localhost:8080/xwiki/bin/export/Main/WebHome?format=xar&name=test&pages=Main.%25
167 http://localhost:8080/xwiki/bin/export/Main/WebHome?format=xar&name=test&pages=%25.%25
168 http://localhost:8080/xwiki/bin/export/Main/WebHome?format=xar&name=test&pages=%25.%25Home
169 {{/code}}
170 )))
171 * Added an edit button to easily change the default Welcome message that is displayed on the homepage. Users have reportedly been struggling with this task for a while now and, until we come up with a new format for the homepage, this is the solution we have proposed to make things easier.(((
172 {{image reference="ReleaseNotesXWiki63RC1@editWelcomeMessage.png"/}}
173 )))
174 * The configuration of the [[Applications Panel>>extensions:Extension.Panels Application||anchor="HApplicationPanel"]] now works with touch-screen devices too.
175 * The Standalone Distribution [[now has a new startup parameter to enable monitoring/managing the Jetty instance>>platform:AdminGuide.Monitoring||anchor="HJMXConsole"]]. You can use it with ##start_xwiki.sh -j## (or ##start_xwiki.sh ~-~-jmx##).
176 * Updated the notification message when the panel layout is saved to use the standard notification widget.
177
178 = For Developers =
179
180 == Velocity improvements ==
181
182 === Velocity macros to display users and groups ===
183
184 We extracted the code that displays in view mode a property of type 'List of Users' and 'List of Groups' from the corresponding custom displayers (found in ##displayer_users.vm## and ##displayer_groups.vm##) into two Velocity macros that can be used to display arbitrary users and groups, even when you don't have an object. Here's how you can use them:
185
186 {{code language="none"}}
187 {{velocity}}
188 {{html wiki="true"}}
189 = Users =
190 == Just one ==
191 #displayUser('XWiki.Admin')
192
193 == List of users ==
194 #displayUser(['Admin', 'XWiki.mflorea'])
195
196 == A reference of a user ==
197 #displayUser($xcontext.userReference)
198
199 == A list of references of users ==
200 #displayUser([$xcontext.userReference, $otherUserReference])
201
202 = Groups =
203 == Just one ==
204 #displayGroup('XWiki.XWikiAdminGroup')
205
206 == List of groups ==
207 #displayGroup(['XWikiAdminGroup','XWiki.HRGroup'])
208
209 == A reference of a group ==
210 #set($adminGroupRef = $services.model.resolveDocument('XWiki.XWikiAdminGroup'))
211 #set($allGroupRef = $services.model.resolveDocument('XWiki.XWikiAllGroup'))
212 #displayGroup($adminGroupRef)
213
214 == A list of references of groups ==
215 #displayGroup([$adminGroupRef, $allGroupRef])
216
217 {{/html}}
218 {{/velocity}}
219 {{/code}}
220
221 === New Velocity Tools ===
222
223 * New URL Tool ##$urltool##: A [[new tool>>extensions:Extension.Velocity Module||anchor="HVelocityTools"]] has been added with one method to parse query string from the URL ##$urltool.parseQuery(String)##. The value returned by this is method is a ##Map<String, List<String>>## which maps parameter names to (possibly multiple) values, and can be passed e.g. directly into ##$escapetool.url(Map<String, ?>)## to convert it back to a string. This is useful e.g. in cases where one want to pass a complete query string around between requests, as it happend for the PDF export; the ##$urltool## allows for a sane deserialization of the value passed around.
224 * New Exception Tool ##$exceptiontool##: A [[new tool>>extensions:Extension.Velocity Module||anchor="HVelocityTools"]] to manipulate Java Exceptions (get root cause, convert into String, etc).
225 * ##$stringtool## moved from ##org.apache.commons.lang3.StringUtils## to ##org.xwiki.text.StringUtils## which extends the first one and add new stuff
226
227 === Ability to catch Exceptions from Velocity ===
228
229 A new Velocity Directive has been added to catch Exceptions from Velocity. In addition a new ###displayUnhandledException()## velocity macro has also been added to nicely display an exception to the user.
230
231 For example:
232
233 {{code language="velocity"}}
234 #try()
235 #set($outputSyntax = $xwiki.getAvailableRendererSyntax($request.outputSyntax, $request.outputSyntaxVersion))
236 #if ($outputSyntax)
237 ## If the passed syntax is not an HTML-compatible syntax we need to HTML-escape it so that it can be
238 ## displayed fine in HTML (since at the point this vm file is called we're already inside an HTML page with
239 ## panels on the side, header, etc).
240 #set($syntaxType = $outputSyntax.type.toIdString())
241 #if (($syntaxType == "xhtml") || ($syntaxType == "html"))
242 #set ($renderedContent = $tdoc.getRenderedContent($outputSyntax))
243 #else
244 ## Make sure to print correctly the result when it's not HTML
245 #set ($renderedContent = "<pre>$escapetool.html($tdoc.getRenderedContent($outputSyntax))</pre>")
246 #end
247 #else
248 #set ($renderedContent = $tdoc.getRenderedContent())
249 #end
250 #end
251 ...
252 <div id="xwikicontent">
253 #if ("$!exception" != '')
254 #displayUnhandledException($exception)
255 #else
256 $renderedContent
257 #end
258 </div>
259 ...
260 {{/code}}
261
262 This generates the following in case of error rendering the page:
263
264 {{image reference="ReleaseNotesXWiki63M1@renderingerror.png"/}}
265
266 === New #displayException macro ===
267
268 Displays an error message with a title that can be clicked and expands to display an exception.
269
270 Example from a wiki page:
271
272 {{code language="none"}}
273 {{velocity}}
274 #set ($message = $services.mailsender.createMessage())
275 $message.send()
276
277 {{html}}
278 #displayException("hello world", $services.mailsender.lastError)
279 {{/html}}
280 {{/velocity}}
281 {{/code}}
282
283 == Component Disposal ==
284
285 The order used by the ComponentManager to dispose its components is computed based on declared dependencies. However there might be cases when you wish a Component's ##dispose()## method to be called before or after all other components. In this case you can use the ##DisposePriority## annotation. The default priority is 1000. A higher value will mean disposing before all other components not having this annotation. For example:
286
287 {{code language="java"}}
288 @Component
289 @Singleton
290 @DisposePriority(10000)
291 public class DefaultHibernateSessionFactory implements HibernateSessionFactory, Disposable
292 {
293 ...
294 @Override
295 public void dispose() throws ComponentLifecycleException
296 {
297 ... called after other components in order to shut down the database late...
298 }
299 ...
300 }
301 {{/code}}
302
303 See the [[Component Reference documentation>>extensions:Extension.Component Module]] for other details.
304
305 == New LiveTable Filtering Option ==
306
307 You can now specify how the filter value should be matched against the stored value. One use case when this is useful is when you have a live table for an XClass that has a Database List property and you want to use a text input filter instead of the default drop down list filter. Currently the user has to enter the full value in the text input in order to filter. Would be good if partial matching would work. This is possible starting with this version:
308
309 {{code language="none"}}
310 #set ($columnsProperties = {
311 'doc.name': {'type': 'text', 'size': 10, 'link': 'view'},
312 ...
313 'myDatabaseList': {'type': 'text', 'size': 10, 'match': 'partial'},
314 ...
315 })
316 {{/code}}
317
318 Checkout the [[LiveTable Macro documentation>>extensions:Extension.Livetable Macro||anchor="HParameter24columnsProperties"]] for more details about the **match** option.
319
320 == Solr JSON Service ==
321
322 You can now make search requests from JavaScript using the Solr JSON service. The results include all the information that is indexed by Solr so you can display them as you wish. See the [[Solr Search Application>>extensions:Extension.Solr Search Application||anchor="HJSONService"]] documentation for more details.
323
324 == Document Meta Informations ==
325
326 * We have introduced a new JavaScript API to get informations about the current document. See: [[platform:DevGuide.JavaScriptAPI||anchor="HGetsomeinformationsaboutthecurrentdocument"]].
327
328 == Tree Widget ==
329
330 We introduce a [[new JavaScript widget>>extensions:Extension.Tree Widget]] that can be used to create tree views for the structured data stored in the wiki. It is based on [[jsTree>>http://www.jstree.com/]] and thus has support for both static and dynamic (interactive) trees.
331
332 == Tree Macro ==
333
334 We introduce [[a new wiki macro>>extensions:Extension.Tree Macro]] that allows you to easily define a tree in a wiki page. It uses the tree widget.
335
336 {{code language="none"}}
337 {{tree}}
338 * Parent
339 ** Child
340 {{/tree}}
341
342 {{tree reference="Space.MyDynamicTree" /}}
343 {{/code}}
344
345 == Improved WebJars Integration ==
346
347 We added 2 new features to improve the WebJars Integration:
348
349 * You can now omit the WebJar version:(((
350 {{code language="none"}}
351 $services.webjars.url('angularjs', 'angular.js')
352 {{/code}}
353 )))
354 * You can use Velocity code in WebJar resources. This means you can use for instance Color Theme variables inside your CSS files that are packaged inside a WebJar:(((
355 {{code language="none"}}
356 $services.webjars.url('org.xwiki.contrib:my-webjar', 'style.css', {'evaluate': true})
357 {{/code}}
358 )))
359
360 See the [[WebJar Integration documentation>>extensions:Extension.WebJars Integration]] for more information.
361
362 == Wiki skin templates executed with rights of their author ==
363
364 Skin template overrides located in wiki page properties or attachment are executed with the right of their author.
365
366 == Miscellaneous ==
367
368 * The wiki provisioning job has now the current user set in the context.
369 * 10 new icons have been mapped into [[Font Awesome Icon Theme>>extensions:Extension.Font Awesome Icon Theme]].
370 * It's now possible to overwrite the id of a Java bean property using an annotation. See [[extensions:Extension.Properties Module||anchor="HPopulateaJavaBean"]] for more.
371 * [[It's possible to get DEBUG information only for shutdown operations>>dev:Community.Debugging||anchor="HLoggingshutdownoperations"]] by editing ##logback.xml## and setting:(((
372 {{code language="xml"}}
373 <logger name="org.xwiki.shutdown" level="debug"/>
374 {{/code}}
375 )))
376 * When importing an extension unknown but valid versions are not removed anymore
377 * New ##outputOnlyHtml## option for the ##livetable## macro to output only the HTML, without the syntax specific wrappers. See the [[documentation>>extensions:Extension.Livetable Macro||anchor="HAllacceptedvalues"]].
378 * Suggest widget now has an extra ##propagateEventKeyCodes## option where key codes can be listed so their events will be propagated. See the [[documentation>>platform:DevGuide.AutoSuggestWidget||anchor="HJavascriptparametersfortheXWiki.widgets.Suggestconstructor"]].
379 * Extended modalPopup.js to support specifying keyboard shortcut options for the defined actions. See the [[documentation>>platform:DevGuide.ModalPopup||anchor="HConstructorfieldsfortheModalPopupJavascriptclass"]].
380 * You can now [[render an icon from any icon theme present on the wiki>>extensions:Extension.Icon Theme Application||anchor="HUsagewithscripts"]], referenced by its name:(((
381 {{code language="velocity"}}
382 $services.icon.render('globe', 'Silk')
383 $services.icon.render('globe', 'Font Awesome')
384 {{/code}}
385 )))
386

427 When upgrading make sure you compare your ##xwiki.cfg##, ##xwiki.properties## and ##web.xml## files with the newest version since some configuration parameters may have been modified or added. Note that 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.
428
429 == Programming Rights disabled for TextArea Properties ==
430
431 If you have a class with a TextArea property and in your sheet you use ##$doc.display()## to display this property then you must know that starting with this version the content of the TextArea is rendered without programming rights, even if the last author or content author of the document that has the object with the TextArea property has programming rights. In other words, if you use wiki syntax in the TextArea content and you use script macros inside, the code that requires programming rights won't be executed even if you have the necessary rights. The reason for this change is because we can't know for sure who is the last author of the TextArea's content. We may remove this limitation in the future if we add a way to know the author. A solution we are currently investigating is the usage of signed scripts in TextArea's content. Until then, if you really want to execute the content of your TextArea properties using programming rights then you can use ##$doc.getRenderedContent()## in your sheet, passing the content of the TextArea property.
432
433 == Change on velocity macro handling in skin templates ==
434
435 Wiki page does not have access anymore to Velocity macros defined in the skin templates (except for macro.vm special template).
436
437 == Change on rights handling of wiki skins ==
438
439 Templates located in wiki skin properties or attachment are now executed with the right of their author. It means the current document rights does not have any impact anymore on the wiki skin. Note that part of the skin used to be denied programming right (everything executed after the document content) anyway.
440
441 == API Breakages ==
442
443 The following APIs were modified since XWiki 6.2:

447 {{code language="none"}}
448 org.xwiki.extension.Extension: Method 'public org.xwiki.extension.ExtensionIssueManagement getIssueManagement()' has been added to an interface
449 {{/code}}
450
451 * Add issue management informations to extensions descriptors. Should be safe enough since most repository handlers extend AbstractExtension instead of directly implement Extension
