8
9 = New and Noteworthy (since XWiki Enterprise 2.4 Milestone 1) =
10
11 == Objects and classes editor improvements ==
12
13 The object and class editor are now fully panel-less, which among other things means that you have the full object/class editors UI even in an empty wiki without having to import the needed XE xar.

23
24 There are also many other small ergonomics improvements to discover !
25
26 == New Template-based page creation ==
27
28 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.
29
30 * After you have [[created the template and the template provider>>extensions:Extension.Administration Application#HEasyTemplatesCreationandAdministration28StartingwithXWikiEnterprise2.4M229]] you can then start creating pages from this template:

38 Find more details about the template creation and administration on the [[documentation page>>extensions:Extension.Administration Application#HEasyTemplatesCreationandAdministration28StartingwithXWikiEnterprise2.4M229]].
39
40 == New Invitation Manager application ==
41
42 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.
43
44 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.
45
46 Internationalized and configurable email templates generate rich HTML email content from user input.

81
82 * Make the Query Manager use the Script Service to expose services to scripts. See [[Query Guide>>platform:DevGuide.QueryGuide]] for more details.
83 * Make possible to directly return the Block based result of a script macro. It's supported for all JSR 223 macro which means all script macro script Velocity macro for now. See [[Script Macro>>extensions:Extension.Script Macro]] for more details.
84 * Prevent nested script macros by default: It's now impossible for the output of a script macro to become another script macro for security reasons. See [[Script Macro>>extensions:Extension.Script Macro]] for more details.

113 = Backward Compatibility and Migration Notes =
114
115 == General Notes ==
116
117 {{warning}}
118 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,...//.
119 {{/warning}}
120
121 You may also want to [[import the default wiki XAR>>Main.Download]] in order to benefit from the improvements listed above.
122
123 {{warning}}
124 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.
125 {{/warning}}
126
127 == Migration Notes ==
128
129 * The default execution order of syntax 1.0 renderers was changed, now groovy scripts are executed before velocity. You can change the order using ##xwiki.render.renderingorder## configuration option in [[xwiki.cfg>>platform:AdminGuide.Configuration#HSamplexwiki.cfg]].
130 * It's now impossible for the output of a script macro to become another script macro. If you need this functionality, you can get it by opening xwiki/WEB-INF/lib/[[xwiki-core-rendering-macro-script-2.4.jar>>extensions:Extension.Script Macro]] and inside of the jar, editing /META-INF/[[components.txt>>extensions:Extension.Component Module]] and removing the line which says:
131 ##org.xwiki.rendering.internal.macro.script.NestedScriptMacroValidator##
132
133 == API Breakages ==
134
135 * ##org.xwiki.rendering.listener.DefaultAttachement## as been renamed to ##org.xwiki.rendering.listener.DefaultAttachment##
136 * jodconverter packages and some classes names has been modified in 3.0 beta3
