Guillaume Delhumeau 8.1 13 == Experimental Flamingo Skin ==
Marius Dumitru Florea 1.1 14
Guillaume Delhumeau 8.1 15 * Flamingo skin CSS is now computed at the runtime, using the [[LESS Module>>extensions:Extension.LESS Module]].
16 * Thanks to this, we have introduced a compatibility between this skin and the old color themes:

Ecaterina Moraru (Valica) 33.1 18 * Flamingo has a simplified Add menu
19 [[[[image:flamingo-menu.png]]>>attach:flamingo-menu.png]]
20 * A lot of fixes and polishing have been made too (changes to the layout, panels, menus).
Marius Dumitru Florea 1.1 21
Guillaume Delhumeau 13.1 22 == Applications Panel ==
23
24 The applications panel has been modified to adapt itself to the panel column width. The design is different when the size is small, to look closer to a "dock" bar:

Guillaume Delhumeau 13.1 26
Thomas Mortagne 32.1 27 == Extension Manager improvements ==
28
Vincent Massol 44.2 29 Extension-related jobs (install, uninstall, install plan calculation, etc.) which are not executing on the same namespace can now be run concurrently. You won't be stuck anymore, trying to install an extension when someone else is doing the same thing somewhere else on a farm.
Thomas Mortagne 32.1 30
Marius Dumitru Florea 1.1 31 == Miscellaneous ==
32
Vincent Massol 36.2 33 * [[extensions:Extension.SpaceIndex Macro]] has now a new parameter to sort the document by creation date, modification date, or by name.
Pascal Bastien 35.1 34 * User Profile page display email hyperlink (if the email is not obfuscated) on view and preview mode.
Thomas Mortagne 37.1 35 * The SOLR index synchronization which is automatically run at XWiki startup can now be disabled using ##solr.synchronizeAtStartup## property in ##xwiki.properties## file

Vincent Massol 38.1 49
50 Allows to send mails in Java and from wiki pages.
51
52 See [[Mail Sender API>>extensions:Extension.Action API]] for all details.
53
54 Example to send an email from a wiki page:
55
56 {{code language="none"}}
57 {{velocity}}
58 #set ($message = $services.mailsender.createMessage("localhost@xwiki.org", "john@doe.com", "subject"))
59 #set ($discard = $message.addPart("text/plain", "text content"))
60 #set ($discard = $message.send())
61 #set ($discard = $message.waitTillSent(10000))
62 #foreach ($error in $message.getErrors())
63 * $error.message
64 #end
65 {{/velocity}}
66 {{/code}}
67
Thomas Mortagne 30.1 68 == Job module improvements ==
69
70 A new ##org.xwiki.job.JobExecutor## component has been introduce to replace ##org.xwiki.job.JobManager## (which is now deprecated). This component adds support for parallel execution of jobs and also support grouping jobs that need to be executed in the same thread.
71
72 See [[extensions:Extension.Job Module]] for more details.
73
Marius Dumitru Florea 1.1 74 == Upgrades ==
75
76 The following dependencies have been upgraded:
77
Thomas Mortagne 45.1 78 * [[Groovy 2.3.3>>https://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XCOMMONS-598]]
79 * [[Official LESS Compiler for Java 1.7.0.1.1>>https://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XWIKI-10437]]
80 * [[Apache Lucene and Solr 4.8.1>>https://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XWIKI-10357]]
Marius Dumitru Florea 1.1 81
82 == Miscellaneous ==
83
Thomas Mortagne 18.1 84 * xwiki.cfg file properties are now accessible through ##org.xwiki.configuration.ConfigurationSource## component with role hint ##xwikicfg##
Vincent Massol 20.1 85 * Complete refactoring of the [[Resource module>>extensions:Extension.Resource API]]. Note that the Action module has been removed and folded into the new Resource module.
Vincent Massol 22.1 86 * The ##getInstance## methods in the [[Component Script Service>>extensions:Extension.Component Module||anchor="HAccessfromScripts"]] are now public and return ##null## if the Component cannot be looked up. A ##getLastError()## method was also added to get the last exception.
Thomas Mortagne 23.1 87 * New converter for ##java.lang.refect.Type## which allows converting from String to Type and opposite in Velocity and wiki macros parameters for example.
Vincent Massol 24.2 88 * The wiki manager API always returns a descriptor for the main wiki, and if there is no descriptor document it returns a "virtual" one that can be saved. Basically it now means that if a wiki exists there is always a corresponding descriptor, even for the main wiki.
Thomas Mortagne 45.1 89 * The "skin" parameter in the URL is now taken into account when generating the links to the skin CSS (see: [[XWIKI-10426>>https://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XWIKI-10426]]).
90 * Filesystem Attachment Storage now allows you to disable cleaning of empty directories on startup since on a large installation this may take considerable time. (see: [[XWIKI-10431>>https://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XWIKI-10431]])
Vincent Massol 38.3 91 * Start of implementation of the [[Resource Reference Serializer>>extensions:Extension.Resource API]] notion, still need more work.

109 == General Notes ==
110
111 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.
