<description of feature N>

SubWikis Management

XWiki Enterprise comes now with the ability for users to create their own subwikis. There is no "workspace" anymore.

SubWiki Creation Right

The subwiki creation is now possible for users who has the "subwikicreation" right. This right is only available for the main wiki users, exactly like the Programming Right.

A new section is available in the administration of the main wiki to manage who has this right.

Miscellaneous

  • The line chart type has two parameters, hideShapes and hideLines, to hide the shapes used to display the data points or to hide the interpolation lines that connect the data points.

For Developers

Forcing IE Compatibility mode

Now, we force the Compatibility mode for Internet Explorer (IE) browsers to use the latest rendering mode.
Before, the IE browser displayed all intranet sites in compatibility mode by default. This means that even if the user was using IE9, he saw the content rendered with IE7 standards. Since we don't support IE6/7 anymore this lead in displaying broken layout, scrollbars, etc. See XWIKI-8907.

Choosing which types of attachments can be displayed inline (Security)

In order to prevent XSS via FileUpload, a new feature has been added : you can now specify in xwiki.properties which types of attachment can be displayed inline.
In the "Attachment" section of xwiki.properties, you can either precise a whitelist of mimetypes that can be displayed inline, or precise a blacklist of mimetypes that shouldn't be displayed inline (if you use this configuration, it is strongly advised to blacklist at least "text/html" and "text/javascript" mimetypes for security reasons).
Note that attachments provided by PR users won't be affected by these restrictions.

General Notes

You may also want to import the default wiki XAR in order to benefit from all the improvements listed above.

Always make sure you compare your xwiki.cfg and xwiki.properties files with the newest version since some configuration parameters were 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.
