To start using the new editor, check out the [Page Editing Guide>platform:Features.PageEditing]. Again this is work in progress but we'd like *as much feedback as possible*.

27
28 * Default account validation & confirmation emails provided in the wiki preferences
29 * Added .xml extensions to all exported wiki pages (XAR)
30 * The generated HTML for wiki titles now start at h1 instead of h2
31 * The name of the main database in virtual wiki mode is not hardcoded to 'xwiki' anymore, and in virtual mode all database names can be prefixed with a configurable value
32 * Improvement of Query Manager which was introduced in 1.6M1. The purpose of the Query Manager is to allow using multiple Query Languages and manage them (HQL is one such language). The changes are:
33 ** Ability to use positional parameters in Query (only named parameters supported earlier).
34 ** Ability to add a new Query Language easily simply by adding a JAR to the Classpath.
35 * New experimental XWiki Query Language called XWQL. #info("More about the language in [XWQL design page>dev:Design.XWikiQueryLanguage]. The Main syntax and a translator to HQL are implemented. It currently requires programming rights to use in scripts. The current XWQL syntax is not the final one. We'd like some feedback to improve it. The language will fully replace current <tt>$xwiki.search</tt> methods in XE 1.7. The XWQL language is accessible via the Query Manager. Example: <tt>$xwiki.xWiki.store.queryManager.createQuery('from doc.object(XWiki.XWikiUsers) as user', 'xwql').execute()</tt>.")

70 1.1 Common Migration notes
71
72 #warning("If you're running in a multiwiki setup you'll also need to define the property <tt>xwiki.store.migration.databases=all</tt> to your <tt>xwiki.cfg</tt> file or explicitely name all databases to be migrated as in <tt>xwiki.store.migration.databases=db1,db2,...</tt>.")
73
74 You may also want to import the [default wiki XAR>Main.Download] in order to benefit from improvements listed above. Make sure you read the [XWiki upgrade guide>platform:AdminGuide.Installation#HUpgradinganXWikiInstallation] before importing the new XAR since it can cause an overwrite of changes you made to some pages.
75
76 #warning("Always make sure you compare your <tt>xwiki.cfg</tt> file with the newest version since some configuration parameters were added. Of note, you should add <tt>xwiki.store.migration=1</tt> so that XWiki will attempt to automatically migrate your current database to the new schema. Make sure you backup your Database before doing anything.")
