<insert description of release here>

New and Noteworthy (since XWiki <version - 1>)

Full list of issues fixed and Dashboard for <full version here even for RC, e.g. 10.5>.

For Users

Live Data popover menu

 
Before XWiki 13.6, a double click on a property of a Live Data would switch it to edit mode. This mechanism was causing different issues, especially when the entries were containing links.

We have deactivated the double click and a popover is now shown to the user.

On devices equipped with a mouse, the popover is shown when hovering over an editable property and it proposes a single edit action.

On touch-based devices, the popover is shown on touch on editable entries, and on touch on any links. They respectively propose the edit and follow link actions (touching a link in an editable property proposes both actions).

Improved display when there is no entry

 
A message is now displayed when there is not entries to be displayed in a Live Data.

For Admins

No changes!

For Developers

UI Extension Point for Document Extra Tabs

 
A new UI extension point has been added, allowing to insert a new tab at the bottom of a document. The parameters of this UIXP allow to specify the title of the tab, a number to show next to the title, and the order of the tab.
