5 This is the release notes for [[XWiki Commons>>http://commons.xwiki.org]], [[XWiki Rendering>>http://rendering.xwiki.org]], [[XWiki Platform>>http://platform.xwiki.org]] and [[XWiki Enterprise>>http://enterprise.xwiki.org]]. They share the same release notes as they are released together and have the same version.

7 This version brings a lot of usability improvements. The WYSIWYG editor (//CKEditor//) has been upgraded and proposes a better dialog for the creation of links. It is also possible to configure it from the administration.
8
9 Application Within Minutes does not enforce anymore the location where the application's entries must be created, but proposes to the creator the places //where// and //from where// these entries should be. We have also get rid of the ##Data## page where the entries where created before.
10
11 The default values of the user preferences are now better exposed to the users. The order of the applications in the [[application panel>>extensions:Extension.Panels Application||anchor="HApplicationPanel"]] can now be changed by the administrator. And the users now have the ability to filter the page types when they create a page.
12
13 As usual plenty of less noticeable improvements are proposed, and 45 bugs have been fixed since XWiki 8.3.
