This is the release notes for XWiki Commons, XWiki Rendering, XWiki Platform and XWiki Enterprise. They share the same release notes as they are released together and have the same version.

This is our last stabilization branch for the XWiki 7.x Cycle. It brings polishing and stabilization for the Nested Pages feature and the changes in UI that resulted from it.

New and Noteworthy (since XWiki 7.4 Milestone 2)

Full list of issues fixed and Dashboard for 7.4.

Changes in the UI

  • The default logo is now optimized for "Retina" screens, and can be scaled to any dimensions since it's a vectorial image.
  • The Information tab, at the bottom of each page, does not display the parent and the children of the current page anymore. Since this information is available both in the breadcrumb and in the children viewer, they were redundant and have been removed.

  • The search and the notification icons have been inverted. The new order looks more natural when the search bar is expanded.

  • To be more intuitive, the titles of the Rights sections in the page administration have been changed.

For Developers

Miscellaneous

  • The top level Commons POM now performs some checks on the POMs that have it as parent; for example it checks that non core POMs don't use the "XWiki Development Team" in the developers section so that non-core Extensions deployed on extensions.xwiki.org don't appear as developed by the XWiki Development Team.
  • You can now disable the default Live Table query filters by passing the empty string as the value of the queryFilters parameter.

Translations

The following translations have been updated:

Tested Browsers & Databases

The QA Tests are executed after the release has been done. Thus, they are being prepared now and will be published soon.

Known issues

Backward Compatibility and Migration Notes

General Notes

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.
