5 This is the release notes for [[XWiki Commons>>http://commons.xwiki.org]], [[XWiki Rendering>>http://rendering.xwiki.org]] and [[XWiki Platform>>http://platform.xwiki.org]]. They share the same release notes as they are released together and have the same version.

7 This release brings a simplified WYSIWYG Editor toolbar and a couple of bug fixes. Many of our third party dependencies have been upgraded also. There are less new features and improvements than usual because we focused on 3 important investigations, whose results will be seen in the next versions:
8
9 * [[ActivityPub Integration>>design:Proposal.ActivityPub]]: we're implementing an extension to allow XWiki be part of the [[Fediverse>>https://fediverse.party/en/fediverse]] and use [[ActivityPub>>https://www.w3.org/TR/activitypub/]]. The first use case we want to support is to be able to follow the activity of an user from another XWiki instance.
10 * [[Notifications Re-Architecture>>design:Proposal.NotificationsOptimization]]: we're looking for ways to improve the performance of the XWiki notifications; we're experimenting for instance with storing pre-filtered user notifications.
11 * In-place and real-time editing: we want to improve the editing experience by reducing the number of steps required to make changes and we want to enable true collaboration with real-time editing
