Backward Compatibility and Migration Notes

General Notes

  • When upgrading make sure you compare and merge the following XWiki configuration files since some parameters may have been modified, removed or added:
    • xwiki.cfg
    • web.xml
    • hibernate.cfg.xml
  • Add in xwiki.cfg so that XWiki will attempt to automatically migrate your current database to any new schema. Make sure you backup your Database before doing anything.

Issues specific to XWiki 14.10.12

  • The LocalizationManager and ContextualLocalizationManager interfaces have both had a new getTranslation() method added, which can be used to render a translation into a given target syntax. If you have a custom override of these components in your wiki, these methods will return null (thus defaulting to displaying translation keys instead of proper translation content in the UI) until these custom implementations are modified to implement the new methods.
