[Proposal] Roadmap for XWiki 10.8

Hi devs,

With one week late (sorry!), here’s the proposal for XWiki 10.8 (already discussed with committers from XWiki SAS):

Dates:
* 10.8RC1: 17th of Sep
* 10.8Final: 24th of Sep.

Scope:

* Thomas, Marius, Adel, Simon, anyone interested: Improve STAMP KPIs (20%) - 1 day per week
* All: BFD (20%)
* Thomas: continue work on performance (started in 10.4). Goal: go back to XWiki 8.x performance! Hint: https://t.co/0ZckyVYg6c ;)
* Thomas: Add a new tab in the user profile to list groups the user belongs to
* Marius: Improve the Group sheet page. When viewing a group page, be able to filter by first name, last name in addition of id (which is already implemented).
* Guillaume: Notifications performance + bugfixes
* Marius/Adel/Simon: For macros having wiki markup content (need new macro descriptor metadata), let the user enter it in the WYSIWYG directly. When hovering over the macro allow editing content + have some icons to edit parameters (similar to the CKEditor easy image feature: https://github.com/ckeditor/ckeditor-dev/issues/932 They call it a "balloon toolbar"). Related: http://design.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Improvements/MacrosOptions
* Marius/Adel/Simon: Move Menus inside administration (see http://design.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Proposal/IdeaMenuInAdministration)
* Adel/Simon: finish applying Autocomplete on reference everywhere, see https://design.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Proposal/AutocompleteOnReference#HWYIWYGMacros
* Vincent/Thomas: Possible work on improving the LaTeX exporter (will maybe be done in October or split between Sep. and Oct.)
* Caty: investigate how we could make the upgrade experience simpler.
* Caty: investigation for a new XClass picker in object edit mode

As usual let me now if there are some issues and please update https://www.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Roadmaps/ with the corresponding list of JIRA issues (create them if they don’t exist).

Ofc, if anyone is interested to also contribute other things to this roadmap please let us know by replying to this mail.

Thanks!
