XWiki 10.11

  • All: BFD (20%)
  • Thomas/Vincent: Improve STAMP KPIs (20%)
  • All: Bug fixing/small polishing focus on items added during 10.x
  • Marius/Adel: Auto complete of references in WYSIWYG Macro Dialog (+ grouping feature so that users don't get both "page" and "reference" at the same time + "deprecated"/"priority" to show "page" more proeminently than "reference")
  • Thomas: More async/caching of UIX.
  • Thomas: Bug: Unsupported character exception is warned in console when downloading attachment
  • Simon: Import: make it work with new versions of Libre Office (idea: use a more recent fork of jodconverter, we identified one and check if we need to merge changes we did in our fork)

Dates

  • 10.11RC1: 17th 18th of Dec 2018 accept
  • 10.11Final: 24th-31st 26th of Dec 2018 (I’m putting a range since it’s Christmas and we don’t know who’ll be there)

XWiki 10.10

BAU:

  • Thomas/Vincent: Improve STAMP KPIs (20%)
  • All: BFD (20%)

Outstanding work:

  • Thomas: continue work on performance (started in 10.4). Goal: go back to XWiki 8.x performance!
    • Specifically commit the work already done on the asynchronous framework/macro + apply it for UIX + panels + other places - Status: work already done mostly, will require a few more days
    • Other performance-related topics
  • Simon/Marius (moved from 10.8 roadmap): Macro inline editing in WYSIWYG
    • Work mostly done but there are still some leftovers, especially in XRENDERING-518 which is proving harder than expected. Since it’s already late in the release, it’ll be committed in 10.10RC1.
  • Adel (moved from 10.8 roadmap): finish applying Autocomplete on reference everywhere,
    • We have one issue that is in 10.9. The rest is ready but will be committed in 10.10 only (too late for 10.9).
  • Simon: Page Move/Renaming: don't allow and/or warn when moving pages containing xclass definitions. Use case: prevent users from breaking AWM apps they created
    • Work finished but too late to be in 10.9. Will now be in 10.10
  • Adel/Marius (moved from 10.8 roadmap): Auto complete of references in WYSIWYG Macro Dialog (+ grouping feature so that users don't get both "page" and "reference" at the same time + "deprecated"/"priority" to show "page" more proemintenly than "reference")
  • Guillaume: fix outstanding issues for notifications

New work:

  • Simon: Button to remove all deleted pages/attachments in a single click

Best effort (if time permits, the items below are previous leftovers from previous roadmaps or items originally planned for 10.10):

  • Marius/Adel/Simon: ConfigurableClass doesn't support page level configuration ccse
  • Marius/Adel/Simon: Import: make it work with new versions of Libre Office (idea: use a more recent fork of jodconverter, we identified one and check if we need to merge changes we did in our fork)
  • Marius/Adel/Simon: Display Reference of documents to copy paste
  • Marius/Adel/Simon: Improve the XClass picker when in object edit mode (make it like the Add Macro dialog for WYSIWYG editor)
  • Thomas: work on some items to make the upgrade experience simpler + unattended upgrades (ability to upgrade XWiki from the command line without interaction). Use the result of Caty's investigation from XWiki 10.8 period.

Dates

  • 10.10RC1: 19th of November 2018 21th of November 2018
  • 10.10Final: 26th of November 2018 29th of November 2018

  • Adel/Marius (moved from 10.8 roadmap): Auto complete of references in WYSIWYG Macro Dialog (+ grouping feature so that users don't get both "page" and "reference" at the same time + "deprecated"/"priority" to show "page" more proemintenly than "reference")
  • Adel (moved from 10.8 roadmap): finish applying Autocomplete on reference everywhere, see https://design.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Proposal/AutocompleteOnReference
  • Simon: Page Move/Renaming: don't allow and/or warn when moving pages containing xclass definitions. Use case: prevent users from breaking AWM apps they created
  • Guillaume: Remove AS whenever it's used and replaced it with the new Notifications macro

Best effort: If we have time (otherwise candidates for 10.10+):

  • Marius/Adel/Simon: Display Reference of documents to copy paste
  • Marius/Adel/Simon: Improve the XClass picker when in object edit mode (make it like the Add Macro dialog for WYSIWYG editor)
