XWiki is a WikiWiki clone written in Java that supports many popular features of other Wikis like the Wiki syntax, version control, attachments, security, and searching, but also many advanced features like templates, database and dynamic development using scripting languages (Velocity, Groovy, Ruby, Python, PHP, and more), an extension system and skinability, J2EE scalability, an XML/RPC remote API, statistics, RSS feeds, PDF exporting, WYSIWYG editing, an Office viewer and importer, and a lot more.


This release features a new user interface for the extension manager, new features for the Application Within Minutes aspect, a new and improved FAQ application, although it's not bundled by default in XE, support for exporting PDF documents for CJK languages, a new rendering transformation that can be used to check the status of any link encountered in the wiki, support for dependency Providers, as defined in JSR330, and a Disposable interface for singleton components which can be used to release resources when a component is being unregistered.
