25 == New Template-based page creation ==
26
27 Starting with this release users and applications can provide documents that can be used as template when creating new pages. The new document (content, objects and other metadata) will be replicated from the template.
28
29 * After you have [[created the template and the template provider>>code:Applications.AdministrationApplication#HEasyTemplatesCreationandAdministration28StartingwithXWikiEnterprise2.4M229]] you can then start creating pages from this template:

38
39 == New Invitation Manager application ==
40
41 The Invitation Manager application allows users to send emails, inviting friends and colleagues to join a wiki. You will be able to configure your wiki to send emails through an open mail relay on the server or through an email account of your choosing.
42
43 An invitation may allow users to register in a wiki where registration is forbidden. Invitees may choose to accept or decline an invitation. Spam prevention measures ensure that email recipients will have a button to report that message as abuse.
44
45 Internationalized and configurable email templates generate rich HTML email content from user input.

113
114 == General Notes ==
115
116 {{warning}}
117 If you're running in a multiwiki setup you'll also need to define the property //xwiki.store.migration.databases=all// to your //xwiki.cfg// file or explicitly name all databases to be migrated as in //xwiki.store.migration.databases=db1,db2,...//.
118 {{/warning}}
119
120 You may also want to [[import the default wiki XAR>>Main.Download]] in order to benefit from the improvements listed above.
121
122 {{warning}}
123 Always make sure you compare your //xwiki.cfg// file with the newest version since some configuration parameters were added. Note 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.
124 {{/warning}}
125
126 == Migration Notes ==

128 * It's now impossible to generate a script macro with another in another one for security reasons. If you **really** need it, you can override the macro component.
