10
11 [[Full list of issues fixed and Dashboard for 5.3>>http://jira.xwiki.org/secure/Dashboard.jspa?selectPageId=11698]].
12
13 == Solr Search Improvements ==
14
15 === Search Facets ===
16
17 The display of some of the search facets has been improved. The Author and Creator facets now show the user full name, alias and avatar.
18
19 {{image reference="search-userFacet.png"/}}
20
21 The wiki facet displays the wiki pretty name instead of the wiki identifier.
22
23 {{image reference="search-wikiFacet.png"/}}
24
25 The language facet displays the full language name and country (when applicable) in the current locale.
26
27 {{image reference="search-languageFacet.png"/}}
28
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
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.
32
33 {{image reference="search-dateFacet.png"/}}
34
35 When selected, the date facet displays the end points of the date interval. If you specify only the start/end date then the interval will include all dates after/before the specified date.
36
37 {{image reference="search-dateFacet-selected.png"/}}
38
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
43 See the [[Solr Search Application documentation>>extensions:Extension.Solr Search Application]] for details.
44
45 == WikiStream improvements ==
46
47 === Script service improvements ===
48
49 * added a properties converter for ##WikiStreamType## to make easier to manipulate it from Velocity
50 * made APIs asynchronous
51
52 === Confluence XML input module for WikiStream ===
53
54 A new WikiStream input module has been added to parse [[Confluence backup packages>>https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Exporting+Confluence+Pages+and+Spaces+to+XML]].
55
56 === New XHTML based Confluence syntax ===
57
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.
59
60 == New Syntax Guide ==
61
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##.

67
68 == Multi-Wiki ==
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 )))
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 )))
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 )))
85 * It is also possible to edit wikis directly from the wiki index.
86
87 == Miscellaneous ==
88
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]]).
90 * The Statistics Application now has an entry point in the Applications Panel (only visible by Admins by default):(((
91 {{image reference="statsentry.png"/}}
92 )))
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 )))
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##).
97 * Deleted users do not appear anymore in the "Top Active Members" list in the wiki dashboard.

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.
