New how-to guides released on the eXo Platform 4.2 documentation page
We are happy to announce that we have released several new guides showing you how to take maximum advantage of the eXo Platform’s built-in features to improve how you work with the eXo Platform. These guides are available from the eXo Platform documentation page at: eXo Documentation Website.
This new tool supports the installation process to make installing eXo Platform a much more user friendly and easy process. The installer supports three installations versions, covering Windows, Mac OS and Linux, so now you will no longer have to deal with cryptic installation instructions. Instead, it packages up the web server, database, JVM and the eXo Platform all together, leading to a much smoother and simpler installation process.
Check it out here to see how to use this Native Installer – now available in graphical mode and in text mode.
Calendar REST APIs
The eXo Platform uses XWiki as a wiki engine, so now you can develop and use macros in eXo Wiki completely following the XWiki approach. Refer to this guide to see how to create a simple macro that takes the username as input to retrieve email information about a user and then adds it to a mailto form.

All jobs on the eXo Platform, such as the component in charge of sending notification emails every day, can be managed by the Quartz Scheduler.
We have provided here a list and descriptions of the jobs covered, as well as how to manage them through JConsole.
