164 +* When using the standalone package, the logs can also be found in files under ##data/logs/##.

167 +* The port on which Jetty listens for request can be configured using the ##JETTY_PORT## environment variables; ##JETTY_STOP_PORT## can be used to configure the port where stop commands are expected.
168 +* Jetty's messages are now more informative: internal information isn't displayed, while notifications for the users are printed both at startup and shutdown.
169 +* Single line fields in documents are not merged at character level anymore. This might increase a bit the number of potential conflicts but at the same time improve the suggestion in most cases in case of real conflict since most of the time this kind of field cannot really be merged.

108 -<description of deprecated and retired projects>
200 +By passing the ##showCancelButton : true## option in the ##interactionParameters## argument to the constructor, a //Cancel// button will be displayed next to the //Yes// and //No// ones. The label of the button can be specified with the ##cancelButtonText## interaction option, and an optional callback to execute with the ##onCancel## behavior option.
109 109  
202 +== The ##XWiki.widgets.ModalPopup#createButton## method now accepts an ##extraClass## parameter ==
203 +
204 +The fifth parameter can be used to add additional classes, besides the standard ##button##, to the created buttons.
205 +
206 +== WikiStream module renamed to Filter module ==
207 +
208 +The heart of WikiStream being far more generic than wikis, most of it have been moved to commons in the already existing [[Filter module>>extensions:Extension.Filter Module]].
209 +
210 +Most of WikiStream module moved to commons filter module (everything that wasn't really depending on any platform project) and it also been renamed to ##Filter## on platform side to follow commons naming. The structure of the API did not changed a bit except for the naming. In short every "WikiStream" in your code should be changed to ##Filter## or ##FilterStream##. None of the existing streams identifiers changed except for the generic XML streams which is is now ##filter+xml## (instead of wiki+xml).
211 +
212 +== Mail Sender API ==
213 +
214 +* The new [[Mail Sender API>>extensions:Extension.Action API]] is now bundled by default in XWiki Enterprise.
215 +* It's now possible to access the Mail Sending API configuration from scripts by calling ##$services.mailsender.configuration##.
216 +* The ##send()## API now sends messages synchronously and a new ##sendAsynchronously()## API has been added
217 +* Using the following will now automatically add a template body part too:(((
218 +{{code language="none"}}
219 +#set ($message = $services.mailsender.createMessage('template', $templateReference, $mailParameters)
220 +{{/code}}
221 +)))
222 +* In addition the "template" Mime Message Factory supports passing "to", "from", "cc" and "bcc" addresses in the parameters list, for example:(((
223 +{{code language="none"}}
224 +#set ($mailParameters = {'from' : 'localhost@xwiki.org', 'to' : 'john@doe.com', 'language' : $xcontext.language, 'velocityVariables' : { 'var1' : 'value1' }})
225 +#set ($message = $services.mailsender.createMessage('template', $templateReference, $mailParameters)
226 +{{/code}}
227 +)))
228 +
229 +== Building XWiki is now possible using Maven 3.1 and 3.2 ==
230 +
231 +The packager Maven plugin was using temporary APIs used only in Maven 3.0, which [[made it impossible to build modules depending on that plugin with other versions of Maven than 3.0.x>>http://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XWIKI-9760]]. This has now been fixed, and the build works with any 3.x Maven version.
232 +
233 +== Blame generic API and Script Service ==
234 +
235 +Provides the implementation of the blame/annotate/praise algorithm.
236 +
237 +Like the diff module API, this API is not tied to any type so you have to first transform the datas you want to blame into lists and you will be able to link them with any kind of revision metadata. Blame will link each elements of the initial list with the revision metadata of the original revision it came from. You will have to call blame in loop with each revised list, starting from the most recent one, until all element are annotated.
238 +
