The XWiki development process uses JIRA for listing all tasks to be implemented and all bugs to be fixed.

You'll find there the dates and versions planned for issues to be fixed and hence the XWiki roadmaps. There's also a release calendar listing all known dates for future releases. Please understand that these dates are often tentative since XWiki's development is open source and lots of committers/contributors are working in their free time on XWiki.

If you're interested to help out check the contributing page.

We're releasing several top level projects together and as such we've decided to have the same Roadmap page for all of them. Thus this page contains the roadmap for the following projects: XWiki Commons, XWiki Rendering and XWiki Platform.

General goals for all releases:

  • More tests
  • Better javadoc
  • More documentation on xwiki.org
  • Code cleanup/refactoring

Already implemented roadmaps can be found in the archives.

Note that all planned release dates are also entered in the Calendar on JIRA.

Scope:

  • Thomas: Add a new tab in the user profile to list groups the user belongs to
  • Marius: Improve the Group sheet page. When viewing a group page, be able to filter by first name, last name in addition of id (which is already implemented).
  • Guillaume: Notifications performance + bugfixes
  • Marius/Adel/Simon: For macros having wiki markup content (need new macro descriptor metadata), let the user enter it in the WYSIWYG directly. When hovering over the macro allow editing content + have some icons to edit parameters (similar to the CKEditor easy image feature: https://github.com/ckeditor/ckeditor-dev/issues/932 They call it a "balloon toolbar"). Related: http://design.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Improvements/MacrosOptions
  • Marius/Adel/Simon: Move Menus inside administration (see http://design.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Proposal/IdeaMenuInAdministration)
  • Adel/Simon: finish applying Autocomplete on reference everywhere, see https://design.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Proposal/AutocompleteOnReference#HWYIWYGMacros
  • Vincent/Thomas: Possible work on improving the LaTeX exporter (will maybe be done in October or split between Sep. and Oct.)
  • Caty: investigate how we could make the upgrade experience simpler.
  • Caty: investigation for a new XClass picker in object edit mode
