19 == Distribution Wizard Step to Upgrade All Wikis ==
20
21 We added a new step to the [[Distribution Wizard>>doc:platform:Features.DistributionWizard]] to update the default set of wiki pages on each of the existing wikis. This step is triggered only if you choose to upgrade the entire farm in the "Upgrade Mode" step.

25 == Markdown Syntax 1.1 ==
26
27 We've added [[version 1.1 of the Rendering Syntax for Markdown>>rendering:Main.Markdown11]], adding support for:
28
29 * Macros
30 * Superscript and subscript
31 * (X)HTML improvements

33 == Export big wikis as XAR ==
34
35 It's possible to enable the use of new [[WikiStream>>doc:extensions:Extension.Wiki Stream Module]] framework in standard export action (use in the standard export UI for example). Among other things it allows exporting a wiki of pretty much any size.
36
37 [[WikiStream>>doc:extensions:Extension.Wiki Stream Module]] is too young for it to be enabled by default and will require heavy testing. In the meantime you can try it by uncommenting {{code}}# xwiki.action.export.xar.usewikistream=1{{/code}} at the end of xwiki.cfg file.
38
39 == Miscellaneous ==
40
41 * Improved Active Installs Server side API to be able to pass any query to count installs.
42 * Active Installs Client now also send the Distribution id in addition to the Distribution version to identify the "product" sending the ping
43 * The checkboxes for the global rights settings are now displayed on the left of their labels.(((

103 Always make sure you compare your ##xwiki.cfg## and ##xwiki.properties## files with the newest version since some configuration parameters were 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.
