This is the release notes for XWiki Commons, XWiki Rendering and XWiki Platform. They share the same release notes as they are released together and have the same version.

This is a bugfix release that covers important issues that we have discovered since 10.6 has been released.

This release contains a bug that can affect the scalability of the service. Until the proper fix, it is highly recommended to turn off the "autowatch" feature of the notifications.
 
You can do that by adding in the xwiki.properties file the following lines:

# Disable autowatch until the following issue is fixed:
# https://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XWIKI-15445
xwiki.plugin.watchlist.automaticwatch=none

New and Noteworthy (since XWiki 10.6)

Backward Compatibility and Migration Notes

General Notes

When upgrading make sure you compare your xwiki.cfg, xwiki.properties and web.xml files with the newest version since some configuration parameters may have been modified or added. Note that you should add xwiki.store.migration=1 so that XWiki will attempt to automatically migrate your current database to the new schema. Make sure you backup your Database before doing anything.
