15 * A new menu has been added to the top bar, on the right: the "notifications" menu (represented by a bell). In the future, it will be the place where you can find notifications about some events happening on the wiki (personal message, a page has been modified, etc...).(((

31 = For Developers =
32
33 == Tree Velocity Macros ==
34
35 You are now able to "call" the Document Tree from Velocity using something like this:
36
37 {{code language="none"}}
38 #documentTree({
39 'class': 'location-tree',
40 'finder': true,
41 'showAttachments': false,
42 'showRoot': $showRoot,
43 'showTerminalDocuments': false,
44 'showTranslations': false,
45 'showWikis': $showWikis
46 })
47 {{/code}}
48
49 The same is possible with the generic Tree Widget:
50
51 {{code language="none"}}
52 #tree({
53 'reference': 'XWiki.DocumentTree',
54 'root': 'document:xwiki:Sandbox.WebHome',
55 'openTo': 'document:xwiki:Sandbox.TestPage2'
56 })
57 {{/code}}
58
59 All the parameters that are available for the wiki macros (##~{~{documentTree}}## and ##~{~{tree}}##) should be available also for the corresponding Velocity macro.
60
61 == Miscellaneous ==
62
63 * An extension point to add content inside the new "Notifications" menu has been added:(((
64 |=##[[org.xwiki.platform.notifications>>platform:ExtensionPoint.Notifications]]##
65 |{{image reference="NotificationsInside.png"/}}
66 )))
67 * A new ##extractFirstReference(EntityType)## API has been added to ##EntityReference##: Extract the first entity of the given type from this one by traversing the current entity to the root. This differentiates it from ##extractReference(EntityType)## which extracts the last entity of the given type.
68 * The escape Velocity tool has a new method to escape CSS identifiers. This is similar to ##CSS.escape()## available in JavaScript, and is useful if you want to create CSS selectors dynamicaly using untrusted input.(((
69 {{code language="none"}}
70 $escapetool.css('a#b.c d[e=f]g{h:i;j}k')
71 ## Output: a\\#b\\.c\\ d\\[e\\=f\\]g\\{h\\:i\\;j\\}k
72 {{/code}}
73 )))
74 * The Document Tree Macro has a new parameter to control whether the hidden documents are filtered or not. Set to false to force the display of the hidden documents in the tree.(((
75 {{code language="none"}}
76 {{documentTree filterHiddenDocuments="false" /}}
77 {{/code}}
78 )))

115
116 = Backward Compatibility and Migration Notes =
117
118 == General Notes ==
119
120 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.
121
122 == Issues specific to XWiki 7.4 Milestone 1 ==
123
124 * Better backward-compatibility for URLs has been added for the following 2 cases:
125 ** If the ##view## action is omitted in the URL and the first space name doesn't match an action name, then the "view" action is implied
126 ** The ##view## action can be specified even when the wiki is configured to hide the ##view## action.
127 ** Note that this fixes [[some backward-compatibility issue introduced in XWiki 7.2>>ReleaseNotes.ReleaseNotesXWiki72||anchor="HURLs"]]
