      Description

      When a new version of XWiki is released, send a notification to the users in the XWikiAdminGroup.

      In order to do so, we could perform periodic REST requests to extensions.xwiki.org to check if a new version is available.

      Regarding how the notifications are retrieved in the notifications center of the administrators, we could either :

      • Enable support for TargetableEvents in the xwiki-platform-notifications module ;
      • Create an inclusive toggleable filter preference that is only applied to users of the XWikiAdminGroup.

      WDYT Guillaume Delhumeau ?

          Ok, so new updates !

          I just had a conversation with Thomas Mortagne and we think that we can create a module in xwiki-commons that will check periodically if a new version is available (see XCOMMONS-1253 for the related xwiki-commons issue) ; when a new version of the distribution is available, an event is then sent to the observation manager and handled by the notification center.
