13 == Toggle Email Obfuscation ==
14
15 The email configuration section in the [[Administration>>doc:extensions:Extension.Administration Application]] now has an option to enable/disable the obfuscation of the email addresses that are stored in object properties of [[type Email>>ReleaseNotes.ReleaseNotesXWiki42||anchor="HNewfieldtypesforemailandlistofpages"]]. The obfuscation is done by displaying only the first letter of the email account, e.g. //a...@domain.org//, the rest of the letters being replaced by an ellipsis. Email obfuscation is off by default.

33 = For Developers =
34
35 == New Filter Module ==
36
37 Commons get a new base module for all streaming systems based on filters like Rendering and the coming Wiki Stream. See [[Filter Module documentation>>extensions:Extension.Filter Module]].
38
39 == JSON parsing in Velocity ==
40
41 ##$jsontool.parse('["json string"]')## can now be used to parse a serialized JSON into [[json-lib>>http://json-lib.sourceforge.net/]] [[arrays>>http://json-lib.sourceforge.net/apidocs/jdk15/net/sf/json/JSONArray.html]] or [[objects>>http://json-lib.sourceforge.net/apidocs/jdk15/net/sf/json/JSONObject.html]].
42
43 Only valid JSON strings can be parsed. JSONP is not supported. If the argument is not valid JSON, then ##null## is returned, parsing exceptions are cought.
44
45 == Query String escaping ==
46
47 The following method ##$escapetool.url(Map<String, ?>)## has been added to the escapetool module. It allows to create a properly url-escaped query string from a map of parameters.
48 For example ##$escapetool.url({'alice': ['A&A', 'M&M'], 'bob': [13, 27]})## would return ##alice=A%26A&alice=M%26M&bob=13&bob=27##. See [[XCOMMONS-435>>http://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XCOMMONS-435]]
49
50 == New Eclipse cs extension ==
51
52 [[XCOMMONS-353>>http://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XCOMMONS-353]] made our checkstyle.xml file unusable as it is in Eclipse cs because of the custom rule that could not be found in the Eclipse classpath.
53
54 ##xwiki-commons-tool-verification-resources## module is now also an Eclipse cs extension which mean you can just drop its jar in Eclipse ##plugins/## folder and you will get the XWiki checkstyle configuration listed in the standard configurations.
55
56 == New XWikiDocument API to remove an attachment ==
57
58 ##XWikiDocument#deleteAttachment## methods have been deprecated in favor of the combination of ##XWikiDocument#removeAttachment## and ##XWiki#saveDocument##. This make attachment deletion follow the same behavior as xobject and among other things allow doing all sort of modifications to a XWikiDocument without touching the database until we decide to apply them by saving the document.
59
60 == Deprecated and Retired projects ==
61
62 * Google plugin (##com.xpn.xwiki.plugin.google.GooglePlugin##) has been retired, you can find it on https://github.com/xwiki-contrib/retired/tree/master/xwiki-platform-google-plugin
63
64 == Upgrades ==
65
66 The following dependencies have been upgraded:
67

74
75 == Miscellaneous ==
76
77 * The way to declare the type supporter by a ##org.xwiki.properties.converter.Converter## component changed from role hint to generic type. See [[Properties Module documentation>>extensions:Extension.Properties Module||anchor="HConvertercomponent28Recommended29"]] for more details. The old way is still supported for retro-compatibility.
