For Users

Experimental Realtime Wiki Editor

 
We cleaned up the Realtime Collaborative Plain WikiText Editor contributed extension and integrated it in the XWiki platform. It's not bundled yet in XWiki Standard but you can still try it out by installing it and following the documentation page.

Experimental Realtime WYSIWYG Editor

 
We cleaned up the Visual Realtime Collaborative Editor contributed extension and integrated it in the XWiki platform. It's not bundled yet in XWiki Standard but you can still try it out by installing it and following the documentation page.

For Admins

No changes!

For Developers

Realtime Communication (Netflux)

 
The new Netflux module provides support for real-time WebSocket-based communication in XWiki by offering:

  • a script service and a REST resource to help create and retrieve communication channels.
  • a WebSocket server end-point used to join channels and to exchange channel or direct user messages.

This can be used along with the Netflux Client to implement realtime-enabled extensions on top of XWiki (e.g. a chat application).

Miscellaneous

  • New event query helper: SimpleEventQuery now have helpers to manipulate custom event properties. It's done by calling parameter() to "switch" the next comparison to be about custom parameters instead of standard Event fields. See Event Stream Module for more details.

    • xwiki.cfg
    • xwiki.properties
    • web.xml

  • Add xwiki.store.migration=1 in xwiki.cfg so that XWiki will attempt to automatically migrate your current database to any new schema. Make sure you backup your Database before doing anything.
