Now when you install or create a new wiki you will be able to choose the Flavor you want to use.

XWiki Big Data with Elastic Search

Update Nov 2016: we published an extension to integrate Elasticsearch and Kibana4 into XWiki.

Almost two years ago, in the XWiki open source community, we needed to learn how many XWiki users we actually had and understand a bit better our user base.

Feature Survey Result for XWiki 4.x

In February 2012 we launched a Survey to gather information from the XWiki Community about you would like to see implemented in the XWiki 4.x development cycle. Note that we had a similar exercise in 2009 and we had posted the results.

This survey had 2 purposes:

  • Find out the main Development Themes for XWiki 4.x.
  • Have a pioritized feature list that we could pick for when we decide each specific roadmap for the 4.x releases (4.0, 4.1, etc).

The most voted themes were:

  • Theme 1: Ease of use
  • Theme 2: Quality

Jointly with us, the XWiki SAS company also did the same exercise asking the same questions to its customers. They have published the full results which aggregate both Community votes and Customers votes. You can also check out the Raw CSV Data.

We'd like to thank everyone who took the time to answer and thus who've helped drive the direction of XWiki! emoticon_smile
