Marius Dumitru Florea 21.1 29 The number of displayed facet values is limited to 5 by default but you can see the rest of the values by clicking on the link following the facet values (each click will show 5 more values).
30
Marius Dumitru Florea 25.1 31 The date facets (last modification date and creation date) have been improved to display a list of predefined date intervals, with the possibility to specify a custom date interval.

Marius Dumitru Florea 25.1 34

Marius Dumitru Florea 26.1 39 === RSS Feed ===
40
41 We added a RSS feed for Solr search results. You can find the link on the default search page after the list of results. The feed provides the most recent results that match the current search query and filters. It contains the same type of information that was included in the Lucene search RSS feed.
42
Marius Dumitru Florea 6.3 43 See the [[Solr Search Application documentation>>extensions:Extension.Solr Search Application]] for details.
Marius Dumitru Florea 6.1 44

55
Thomas Mortagne 2.1 56 === New XHTML based Confluence syntax ===
Marius Dumitru Florea 1.1 57
Marius Dumitru Florea 49.2 58 Since 4.0 Confluence moved to a XHTML based syntax for page content. So in order to import recent version of Confluences a parser for this syntax had to be written first.
Thomas Mortagne 2.1 59
Thomas Mortagne 29.1 60 == New Syntax Guide ==
61
Thomas Mortagne 30.1 62 The Syntax Guide has been completely rewritten to better support growing number of syntaxes and make easier to add documentation for more others. For now it includes ##xwiki/1.0##, ##xwiki/2.0## and ##xwiki/2.1##.

Thomas Mortagne 29.1 67
Guillaume Delhumeau 41.1 68 == Multi-Wiki ==
Guillaume Delhumeau 39.1 69
70 * The "create wiki" wizard now offers the ability to create a new wiki template:(((
71 {{image reference="wizard-new-template.png"/}}
72 )))
73 * It is also possible to select the "user scope" of the new wiki. The user scope determines if local or global users are enabled, or both:(((
74 {{image reference="wizard-user-scope.png"/}}
75 )))
76 * When the user creates a wiki from a template, a new step is displayed in the wizard, while the system is provisioning the wiki:(((
77 {{image reference="wizard-provisioning.png"/}}
78 )))
Guillaume Delhumeau 41.1 79 * The "users" section in the administration of a (sub)wiki gives the opportunity to change the user scope setting, and the membership type too:(((
80 {{image reference="admin-wiki-users.png"/}}
81 )))
Guillaume Delhumeau 43.1 82 * In the "wikis" section of the administration of the main wiki, the created templates are displayed:(((
83 {{image reference="admin-wiki-template.png"/}}
84 )))
Guillaume Delhumeau 44.1 85 * It is also possible to edit wikis directly from the wiki index.
Guillaume Delhumeau 39.1 86
Marius Dumitru Florea 1.1 87 == Miscellaneous ==
88
Vincent Massol 48.1 89 * We're now officially not supporting saving Servlet Session in URL (a.k.a URL Rewriting). This means that if you want to remain logged on in XWiki you need to enable cookies (See why ##jsessionid## are considered harmful [[here>>https://randomcoder.org/articles/jsessionid-considered-harmful]] and [[here>>http://java.dzone.com/articles/java-jsessionid-harmful]]).
Vincent Massol 31.2 90 * The Statistics Application now has an entry point in the Applications Panel (only visible by Admins by default):(((
Vincent Massol 30.2 91 {{image reference="statsentry.png"/}}
92 )))
Vincent Massol 38.1 93 * The Scheduler Application now has an entry point in the Applications Panel (only visible by Admins by default):(((
94 {{image reference="schedulerentry.png"/}}
95 )))
Vincent Massol 7.1 96 * The URL Legacy JAR is now correctly bundled in the XE WAR. This is important since otherwise you'd need to set the URL configuration properties in your ##xwiki.properties## file in addition to setting them in ##xwiki.cfg##. For example ##url.standard.multiwiki.isPathBased## in ##xwiki.properties## **and** ##xwiki.virtual.usepath## in ##xwiki.cfg##).
Guillaume Delhumeau 32.1 97 * Deleted users do not appear anymore in the "Top Active Members" list in the wiki dashboard.
Marius Dumitru Florea 1.1 98

140
Vincent Massol 25.3 141 == General Notes ==
Marius Dumitru Florea 1.1 142
Vincent Massol 25.3 143 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.
