Thomas Mortagne 47.1 7 This is the first of the 2 stabilization releases that happen at the end of each yearly Cycles. Lots of polishing has been done, especially for the recently introduced Nested Pages feature and its consequences on the UI redesign (modified menus for example). Some extensions started exploit nested spaces to bring some improvements.

Guillaume Delhumeau 4.1 23 == Breadcrumb ==
Guillaume Delhumeau 1.1 24
Marius Dumitru Florea 65.1 25 When the hierarchy of a Nested Pages is long, we do not display it entirely any more. Instead, we display a limited version, that the user can expand by clicking on the "ellipsis" character ('...'):

30 * full:(((

Guillaume Delhumeau 6.1 34 Note that this behavior have also been added to all hierarchy breadcrumbs, including location of search results, etc...

Marius Dumitru Florea 65.1 40 The breadcrumb has now support for tree navigation. Each breadcrumb element has a drop down tree that shows the siblings and the children, helping you navigate easily around the wiki.

Guillaume Delhumeau 21.1 44 == Page Index ==
Guillaume Delhumeau 20.1 45
Thomas Mortagne 68.1 46 Since we have introduced the concept of Nested Spaces we needed to replace the Space column in the LiveTable with a more generic solution. Thus, the [[extensions:Extension.Index Application]] has now merged the previous Page + Space columns into a single ##Location## column and we've introduced new ##Title## column but which now displays the title of pages, as can be seen on the following screenshot:
Guillaume Delhumeau 20.1 47
48 {{image reference="livetable-location.png" width="50%"/}}
49
Vincent Massol 21.2 50 The same strategy is implemented for the ##children## and the ##siblings## viewers.
Guillaume Delhumeau 20.1 51
Vincent Massol 26.1 52 Note that you can filter at several path levels in the Location column. For example:
53
54 {{image reference="location-filter.png" width="50%"/}}
55
Vincent Massol 24.2 56 {{info}}
Thomas Mortagne 68.1 57 XWiki currently doesn't support filtering on Page titles which is why the new ##Title## column doesn't allow filtering. However since the ##Location## column includes the full path, users can still search on Page names.
Guillaume Delhumeau 23.1 58
Thomas Mortagne 68.1 59 At a technical level the displaying of page titles was needed because all non-terminal pages names are called ##WebHome## and displaying that would not be user-friendly.

Vincent Massol 37.1 62 == New Panels ==
63
64 * A [[Children Panel>>extensions:Extension.Panels Application||anchor="HChildrenPanel"]] has been added to display the list of Children pages of the current Page.(((
65 {{image reference="children.png"/}}

Thomas Mortagne 49.1 67 * A [[Siblings Panel>>extensions:Extension.Panels Application||anchor="HSiblingsPanel"]] has been added to display the list of Sibling pages of the current Page.(((
Vincent Massol 37.1 68 {{image reference="siblings.png"/}}
69 )))
70 * The [[SpaceDocs Panel>>extensions:Extension.Panels Application||anchor="HSpaceDocsPanel"]] has been deprecated and the [[Children Panel>>extensions:Extension.Panels Application||anchor="HChildrenPanel"]] or [[Siblings Panel>>extensions:Extension.Panels Application||anchor="HSiblingsPanel"]] should be used instead. A warning message has been added (visible only to Admins) to explain this:(((

72 )))
73
Marius Dumitru Florea 60.1 74 == App Within Minutes ==
75
76 Up until this version, the applications created with App Within Minutes were always located in a top level space. For instance, if you wanted to create a "Meeting" application, the application data space was "Meeting". Starting with this version you can also create an application in a nested space. In the first step of the wizard you can select the location where you want the application to be created. In the following image I have create an application with path "Marius / Apps / Meeting".

Eduard Moraru 42.2 80 == Template Providers Administration ==
81
82 The template provider UI has been adapted to Nested Pages and it now supports:
Thomas Mortagne 49.1 83
Eduard Moraru 42.2 84 * Creating template providers deeper than the first level (as it was restricted before), reusing the location picker widget
85 * Setting allowed locations (i.e. spaces) using the tree widget

Eduard Moraru 42.2 96
Marius Dumitru Florea 58.1 97 == XClass Application ==
98
99 The [[XClass Application>>extensions:Extension.XClass Application]] has been modified to support classes defined in nested documents. The default class sheet has been improved to use the new location picker when creating a new class entry, and the list of existing entries is now displayed using a live table. The 'Data types' page has been improved to use the new location picker when creating a new class, and the list of existing classes (data types) is now displayed using a live table.

Guillaume Delhumeau 1.1 106 == Miscellaneous ==
107
Vincent Massol 31.2 108 * The [[Active Installs Client module>>extensions:Extension.Active Installs Client API||anchor="HFormatEvolution"]] had a bug leading to the ##sinceDays## field not being set correctly (was almost always set to 0).
Vincent Massol 45.1 109 * [[New ##xpage## parameter>>platform:DevGuide.Standard URL Format||anchor="HParameter:xpage"]]: ##outputTitle##. If ##true## then also display the title in addition to the content. Defaults to ##false## if not specified.
Clemens Robbenhaar 50.1 110 * The XWiki Syntax help now no longer shows help for syntaxes that are not available in the wiki.

Guillaume Delhumeau 16.1 129 The extension point [[platform:ExtensionPoint.DrawerItem]] has now a parameter ##separator## to add a line separator before the drawer item.
130
Vincent Massol 65.3 131 == Extensions Repository Improvements ==
Guillaume Delhumeau 1.1 132
Vincent Massol 65.3 133 * New Extensions are now created in their own space by default (as the space home page). It will make it easier to organize documentation for large Extensions.
134 * Custom Extension repositories are now sent by the Extension Repository REST service
Guillaume Delhumeau 1.1 135
136 == Upgrades ==
137
138 The following dependencies have been upgraded:
139
Thomas Mortagne 74.1 140 * [[Jackson 2.6.3>>https://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XCOMMONS-861]]
141 * [[LiveValidation 1.4>>https://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XWIKI-12712]]
Guillaume Delhumeau 1.1 142
143 == Miscellaneous ==
144
Eduard Moraru 50.2 145 * A ##displayTitle## option has been added to the hierarchy macros. By default, it is set to true. When disabled, the names of the references are displayed in the breadcrumb, instead of the document titles.
146 * The ##documentTree## macro has been moved to its own module, under the Index application, so that it can be used as a dependency in other modules without pulling the entire Index application.

157
158 == General Notes ==
159
160 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.
