21 = For Developers =
22
23 == DocumentReference Locale now taken into account in XWiki#exists and XWiki#getDocument ==
24
25 You can now use ##XWiki#exist## method to check for some translation existence too, before that the only way was to either load the XWikiDocument or write your own XWQL or HQL query.
26
27 ##XWiki#getDocument## has been modified accordingly too to be consistent so you don't need to go through ##XWikiDocument#getTranslatedDocument## anymore.
28
29 It also mean that you need to be careful of what Locale is in the DocumentReference with those APIs now.
30
31 == New Extension Manager APIs ==
32
33 === Extension sub script services ===
34
35 The ##extension## service now expose an extension point for extension related script service so that it's used as entry point for all of them.
36
37 By default the following are provided:
38
39 * $services.extension.core (for core extensions APIs)
40 * $services.extension.local (for local extensions APIs)
41 * $services.extension.installed (for installed extensions APIs)
42 * $services.extension.xar (for XAR extension APIS)
43
44 === Search for installed extension in a specific namespace ===
45
46 The following method has been added ##org.xwiki.extension.repository.InstalledExtensionRepository##:
47
48 {{code language="java"}}
49 /**
50 * Search installed extensions based of the provided pattern and only in the passed namespace.
51 * <p>
52 * The pattern is a simple character chain.
53 *
54 * @param pattern the pattern to search
55 * @param namespace the namespace where to search
56 * @param offset the offset from where to start returning search results
57 * @param nb the maximum number of search results to return
58 * @return the found extensions descriptors, empty list if nothing could be found
59 * @throws SearchException error when trying to search provided pattern
60 * @since 5.3M1
61 */
62 IterableResult<Extension> searchInstalledExtensions(String pattern, String namespace, int offset, int nb) throws SearchException;
63 {{/code}}
64
65 == XWiki Enterprise Archetype ==
66
67 A new archetype is now available to [[easily create your own product based on XWiki Enterprise>>dev:Community.XEArchetype]]. To use:
68
69 {{code}}
70 mvn archetype:generate \
71 -DarchetypeArtifactId=xwiki-enterprise-archetype \
72 -DarchetypeGroupId=org.xwiki.enterprise \
73 -DarchetypeVersion=5.3-milestone-1
74 {{/code}}
75
76 == XAR plugin improvements ==
77
78 The [[XAR plugin>>dev:Community.XARPlugin]] now provides the ability to change values in the XML pages. For example:
79
80 {{code}}
81 <plugin>
82 <groupId>org.xwiki.commons</groupId>
83 <artifactId>xwiki-commons-tool-xar-plugin</artifactId>
84 <configuration>
85 <transformations>
86 <transformation>
87 <file>Blog/WebHome.xml</file>
88 <xpath>/xwikidoc/object/property/itemsPerPage</xpath>
89 <value>100</value>
90 </transformation>
91 <transformation>
92 <artifact>org.xwiki.platform:xwiki-platform-administration-ui</artifact>
93 <file>XWiki/XWikiPreferences.xml</file>
94 <xpath>/xwikidoc/object/property/colorTheme</xpath>

96 </transformation>
97 </transformations>
98 </configuration>
99 </plugin>
100 {{/code}}
101
102 == Fold Events ==
103
104 A new kind of event is now available. An event tagged as "Fold" can be sent by a task that generates some events during its execution. Then, these generated events can be seen as children of the main task. In addition, the [[Activity Stream>>extensions:Extension.Activity Stream Plugin]] will not record these child events.
105
106 More documentation available on the [[Observation Module>>extensions:Extension.Observation Module Local]] page.
107
108 == Miscellaneous ==
109
110 * [[Script Services implementations have been moved outside of the ##internal## package>>dev:Community.JavaCodeStyle||anchor="HPackagenames"]] in order for CLIRR to check them for backward incompatibilities and so that their API are made available in generated Javadoc.
111

142 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.
