5 The [[XWiki development process>>dev:Main.WebHome]] uses [[JIRA>>http://jira.xwiki.org]] for listing all tasks to be implemented and all bugs to be fixed.
6
7 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>>http://jira.xwiki.org/secure/Dashboard.jspa?selectPageId=10000]] 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.

12 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, XWiki Platform and XWiki Enterprise.
13 {{/info}}
14
15 General goals for all releases:
16
17 * More tests
18 * Better javadoc
19 * More documentation on xwiki.org
20 * Code cleanup/refactoring
21
22 Already implemented roadmaps can be found in the [[archives>>Archives]].
23
24 Note that all planned release dates are also entered in the Calendar on [[JIRA>>http://jira.xwiki.org/secure/Dashboard.jspa?selectPageId=10000]].

26 = XWiki Enterprise 6.x [[Cycle>>dev:Community.VersioningAndReleasePractices]] =
27
28 * Theme: **Slick, Slim and Secure**
29
30 Explanations:
31
32 * Performance improvements across the board: page load time, scalability, activity stream rewrite, memory usage rationalization.
33 * Introduce the flavor mechanism (as already discussed here) with the idea of removing the maximum of extensions from the base and be able to build a minimal, lightweight wiki, have a few flavors.
34 * Slickiness achieved with things like new skin, syntax highlighting + autocompletion, easier rights UI and more.
35 * Also spend time improving various security aspects, including the addition of Signed scripts.
36
37 In short we’ve realized that XWiki has grown along the years and it’s becoming a bit heavyweight in various aspects. So the idea would be to focus on performances and ease of use to slim it down and ensure it’s kicking fast!
