17 == Mail Sender API Improvements ==
18
19 * You can now specify the delay to wait between each mail being sent, in milliseconds. This is done to support mail throttling and not be considered a spammer by mail servers. For example if you wish to wait 10 seconds (if not specified the default is 8 seconds, which is 450 mails per hour), set the following in your ##xwiki.properties##:(((
20 {{code language="none"}}
21 mail.sender.sendWaitTime = 10000
22 {{/code}}
23
24 The configuration parameter can also be changed from the [[Mail Admin UI>>extensions:Extension.Mail Application]]:
25
26 {{image reference="sendmailwait.png"/}}
27 )))
28 * We now save both an error summary and a full error description when a mail fails to be sent when using the Database Mail Listener. This allows to see the full stack trace of the problem to more easily debug it.(((
29 {{image reference="sendmailerror.png"/}}
30 )))
31 * The Mail Type is now displayed in the [[Mail Sender Status Admin UI>>extensions:Extension.Mail Application]]:(((
32 {{image reference="mailtype.png"/}}
33 )))
34 * The ##MailResult.isSent()## API has been renamed to ##MailResult.isProcessed()## to avoid thinking that it'll return true if all mails have been sent successfully. What it does is simply return true when all mails have been processed, whether they've been sent successfully or not.
35 * A new scripting API has been added to set the mail type:(((
36 {{code language="none"}}
37 $message.setType("Some type")
38 {{/code}}
39 )))
40 * In the [[Mail Sender Status Admin UI>>extensions:Extension.Mail Application]] we now only display mails sent by the current wiki unless we're on the main wiki.
41
42 == Wikis ==
43
44 * A "Wikis" category has been created in the administration, where the configuration have been moved and split in different sections:(((
45 |=Left menu|=Right menu

47 )))
48
49 == Extension Manager incompatible exceptions ==
50
51 When trying to install an incompatible extension (i.e. you are running XWiki 6.2.4 and want to install FAQ Application 6.3), you are now displayed a proper error instead of having to read through the install log to understand what went wrong, and you are instructed to use the ##Description > Stable Versions## section to manually (for now) find a compatible version of the extension that you want to install.

55 == Miscellaneous ==
56
57 * A click to the Document Index does not leads to an other space anymore.

108 == General Notes ==
109
110 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.
