  • In order to be able to let users switch from "simple" to "advanced" modes, you should import the new XWiki.XWikiUsers and XWiki.XWikiUserSheet pages in your wiki. You can do that by importing the full XAR and then selecting only that page to be imported in the Import tab of the Administration view.
  • You should also reimport the Panels Application since several bugs have been fixed.

Migration from 0.9.x versions

  • Start by making a backup of your current database.
  • Then there are 2 possible use cases:
    • You want to keep your existing skin. In that case, simply install the new version and point it to your existing database.
    • You want to use the new 1.0 skin with your current database. In that case, install the new version and point it to your existing database. Then start XWiki and import the Panels XAR (this is required as the new skin makes use of them). Last, go to your wiki Administration page and in the skin section, enter "xwiki10b1".
  • In order to be able to let users switch from "simple" to "advanced" modes, you should import the new XWiki.XWikiUsers and XWiki.XWikiUserSheet pages in your wiki. You can do that by importing the full XAR and then selecting only that page to be imported in the Import tab of the Administration view.
