Top Usability Improvements in 10.x

1: Page and User pickers with auto-suggestion

The auto-suggestion of pages feature has been added in multiple input and even when creating links in WYSIWYG. This way users don't need to know how to write page references and can use the suggests. 

Users and groups have a new compact display that shows in view mode the avatar followed by the user / group name. In edit mode the selected users / groups are shown in-line. 

2: Macro editing improvements

The macro content can now be edited inline with the WYSIWYG editor, for the box, info, warning, error and figure macros.

3: Edit/Rename/Move protection

As with delete and rename operations, if a user tries to modify a page belonging to an Extension, a warning will be displayed to explain that it's very risky and it should be avoided. Users are now warned when they make refactoring operations (delete, move or rename) in pages that contain used XClass.

4: Visible Save

Make the "Save" button more visible, since in some cases it's not always visible when editing and people need to scroll to find it.

5: Navigation Panel Configuration

Navigation Panel focuses more on your own content pages. Administrators can configure the pages that can be excluded from the tree.

6: Menu in Administration

Integrate Menu app inside Administration, in the "Look&Feel" section, because the creation of the navigation is an administrative activity.

2: Protection against accidental deletion

System and Extension pages are now protected against accidental deletion. When you try to delete such pages, XWiki will now ask you to confirm the operation, and list all concerned pages.

3: Administration reorganisation

Most of the administration sections have been moved to existing or new groups. Administration categories can now be dynamically created. You can filter for keywords inside Administration. We make sure the styling is consistent across administrative sections.
