Marius Dumitru Florea 26.1 39 === RSS Feed ===

Marius Dumitru Florea 1.1 61
Marius Dumitru Florea 49.2 62 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 63

65
Thomas Mortagne 30.1 66 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##.

Guillaume Delhumeau 41.1 72 == Multi-Wiki ==
Guillaume Delhumeau 39.1 73
74 * The "create wiki" wizard now offers the ability to create a new wiki template:(((
75 {{image reference="wizard-new-template.png"/}}
76 )))
77 * 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:(((
78 {{image reference="wizard-user-scope.png"/}}
79 )))
80 * When the user creates a wiki from a template, a new step is displayed in the wizard, while the system is provisioning the wiki:(((
81 {{image reference="wizard-provisioning.png"/}}
82 )))
Guillaume Delhumeau 41.1 83 * The "users" section in the administration of a (sub)wiki gives the opportunity to change the user scope setting, and the membership type too:(((
84 {{image reference="admin-wiki-users.png"/}}
85 )))
Guillaume Delhumeau 43.1 86 * In the "wikis" section of the administration of the main wiki, the created templates are displayed:(((
87 {{image reference="admin-wiki-template.png"/}}
88 )))
Guillaume Delhumeau 44.1 89 * It is also possible to edit wikis directly from the wiki index.
Guillaume Delhumeau 55.1 90 * All the documentation is available on the [[application page>>extensions:Extension.Wiki Application]].

Marius Dumitru Florea 1.1 92 == Miscellaneous ==
93
Vincent Massol 48.1 94 * 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 95 * The Statistics Application now has an entry point in the Applications Panel (only visible by Admins by default):(((
Vincent Massol 30.2 96 {{image reference="statsentry.png"/}}
97 )))
Vincent Massol 38.1 98 * The Scheduler Application now has an entry point in the Applications Panel (only visible by Admins by default):(((
99 {{image reference="schedulerentry.png"/}}
100 )))
Vincent Massol 7.1 101 * 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 32.1 102 * Deleted users do not appear anymore in the "Top Active Members" list in the wiki dashboard.

Marius Dumitru Florea 1.1 147
Vincent Massol 25.3 148 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.
