Eduard Moraru 1.4 7 This release introduces a new feature for the Notifications: Watched Entities. It is an experimental feature that will soon replace the [[Watchlist Application>>extensions:Extension.Watchlist Application]]. To try it out and get familiar with it, you need to enable it, since it is currently disabled by default.
Eduard Moraru 1.1 8
Eduard Moraru 1.7 9 For users, we now have more usable notification filter settings, a nice helper when you edit a "Database List" field and a feature that was missing from the CKEditor integration, which is office import.
Eduard Moraru 1.1 10
Eduard Moraru 1.5 11 For developers, it is easier to propose an extension containing REST resources, or to customize the Flamingo LESS code. We have also exposed more database columns in the Query Module for users who don't have programming rights. The notification filters AST (Abstract Syntax Tree) proposes new types of nodes to create complex filter queries. There are also new facilities to avoid using SyntaxFactory, to make Extension Manager faster, or to have more control over some skin elements (CSS IDs and layout variables).

56
57 == General Notes ==
58
59 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.

Eduard Moraru 1.2 61 == Database List Property Values ==
Eduard Moraru 1.1 62
Eduard Moraru 1.2 63 We fixed a few security issues around Database List properties by:
Eduard Moraru 1.1 64
Eduard Moraru 1.2 65 * restricting the type of explicit query you can use on the Database List definition based on the class author rights
66 * evaluating the Velocity code from the explicit query only if the class author has script right
67 * checking if the current user has the right to view the returned values (when implicit query is used)
68
69 This may break existing applications if they use Database List properties and the last author of the class that holds the property definition doesn't have sufficient rights.

Eduard Moraru 2.6 71 == Changes in the way the ##$docextra## variable works ==
72
Eduard Moraru 2.7 73 If, prior to 9.8, you were using the ##$docextra## variable to hide the document tags and creator/creation-date or to hide the viewers section in the "More actions" content menu, please be advised that it will not work as expected anymore. Please read above, in this release notes, how ##$displayContentFooter##, ##$displayDocExtra## and/or ##$displayShortcuts## should be used instead.
