73 == General Notes ==
74
75 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.

Marius Dumitru Florea 11.1 77 == Issues specific to XWiki 9.7RC1 ==
Vincent Massol 1.1 78
Marius Dumitru Florea 12.1 79 * The [[Attachment Index>>extensions:Extension.Index Application||anchor="HAllAttachments"]] doesn't obey the ##$blacklistedSpaces## Velocity variable any more. It uses the hidden page query filter instead, so it follows the "Show hidden pages" settings from the user profile.
Marius Dumitru Florea 19.1 80 * The old Google WebToolkit based WYSIWYG content editor has been removed and this brought some changes to the ##web.xml## file:(((
81 * the package ##org.xwiki.wysiwyg.server.filter## has been renamed to ##org.xwiki.wysiwyg.filter##
82 * the ##gwtrpc## and ##XWikiService## servlets have been removed along with their mappings
83 * the mapping for the ##XWikiContextInitializationFilter## has been removed
