Guillaume Delhumeau 5.1 15 * A new menu has been added to the top bar, on the right: the "notifications" menu (represented by a bell).

Marius Dumitru Florea 36.1 31
32 The application entries (custom) live table results page is not generated any more because it was used only to load the translations on demand and now they are loaded on the wiki or user scope, based on the user rights.

Marius Dumitru Florea 27.1 52 == Tree Velocity Macros ==
Ecaterina Moraru (Valica) 1.1 53
Marius Dumitru Florea 27.1 54 You are now able to "call" the Document Tree from Velocity using something like this:
Ecaterina Moraru (Valica) 1.1 55
Marius Dumitru Florea 27.1 56 {{code language="none"}}
57 #documentTree({
58 'class': 'location-tree',
59 'finder': true,
60 'showAttachments': false,
61 'showRoot': $showRoot,
62 'showTerminalDocuments': false,
63 'showTranslations': false,
64 'showWikis': $showWikis
65 })
66 {{/code}}
67
68 The same is possible with the generic Tree Widget:
69
70 {{code language="none"}}
71 #tree({
72 'reference': 'XWiki.DocumentTree',
73 'root': 'document:xwiki:Sandbox.WebHome',
74 'openTo': 'document:xwiki:Sandbox.TestPage2'
75 })
76 {{/code}}
77
Marius Dumitru Florea 27.2 78 All the parameters that are available for the wiki macros (##~{~{documentTree}}## and ##~{~{tree}}##) should be available also for the corresponding Velocity macro.
Marius Dumitru Florea 27.1 79
Thomas Mortagne 31.1 80 == New public Abstract job ==
Thomas Mortagne 30.1 81
Thomas Mortagne 31.1 82 A public ##org.xwiki.job.AbstractJob## (and corresponding ##AbstractJobStatus##) is now provided to help implementing a Job. An ##AbstractJob## class already existed since a long time but it was in an internal package.
Thomas Mortagne 30.1 83
Ecaterina Moraru (Valica) 1.1 84 == Miscellaneous ==
85
Vincent Massol 18.1 86 * 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.
Marius Dumitru Florea 25.1 87 * 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.(((
88 {{code language="none"}}
89 $escapetool.css('a#b.c d[e=f]g{h:i;j}k')
90 ## Output: a\\#b\\.c\\ d\\[e\\=f\\]g\\{h\\:i\\;j\\}k
91 {{/code}}
92 )))
Marius Dumitru Florea 26.1 93 * 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.(((
94 {{code language="none"}}
95 {{documentTree filterHiddenDocuments="false" /}}
96 {{/code}}
97 )))
Sergiu Dumitriu 40.1 98 * Temporary resources can now be forced to be downloaded by using the ##force-download=1## URL parameter

129 = Backward Compatibility and Migration Notes =
130
131 == General Notes ==
132
133 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.
134
Vincent Massol 17.1 135 == Issues specific to XWiki 7.4 Milestone 1 ==
Ecaterina Moraru (Valica) 1.1 136
Vincent Massol 17.1 137 * Better backward-compatibility for URLs has been added for the following 2 cases:
138 ** 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
139 ** The ##view## action can be specified even when the wiki is configured to hide the ##view## action.
140 ** Note that this fixes [[some backward-compatibility issue introduced in XWiki 7.2>>ReleaseNotes.ReleaseNotesXWiki72||anchor="HURLs"]]
