We have recently experienced the need to improve the
figure macro outside of the XWiki Standard (XS) release cycle, and to allow other extensions to depend on the improved
figure macro (e.g. the numbered figure application).
Therefore, I propose to move
xwiki-rendering-macro-figure out of XWiki Standard.
Some additional notes:
- while the
figuremacro is part of XS, it is not installed by default
- we now have a syntax for [image captions] (XWiki Syntaxes (XWiki.org)), the
figuremacro is not as needed as it could have been
I propose moving
xwiki-rendering-macro-figure to a contrib
I also propose
XFIGURE for the Jira project.
