Known issues

  • The first time you execute 1.1 Milestone 2 the top level Menu can display "$msg(...)" items instead of the correct text. Refreshing the page fixes it. This is registered as Issue 1385.

Migrating from 1.0 or from 1.1 Milestone 1

There have been no changes to the database structure so you can simply install this version and configure it to point to your existing database. However you may want to import the default wiki XAR in order to benefit from improvements listed above. You'll find above the list of pages that have been modified so you can restrict your import to those pages if you're already using a XWiki 1.0 XAR.

Migrating from versions earlier than 1.0

Check the release notes for 1.0.
