This is the release notes for XWiki Commons, XWiki Rendering, XWiki Platform and XWiki Enterprise. They share the same release notes as they are released together and have the same version.

This is a bugfix release.

We've discovered an important regression in 5.4.2: Creation of a sub-wiki based on a template is not working anymore (it was working in XWiki 5.4). We're working on fixing this for 5.4.3.

New and Noteworthy (since XWiki 5.4.1)

Full list of issues fixed and Dashboard for XWiki 5.4.2.

Wiki

In order to be consistent with the old Workspace Application (that was bundled by default in 5.2.x), the default rights for new subwikis has been modified.
Now, a subwiki is viewable by everyone by default.
  • The "membership type" options are more clear.

  • The creation date of each wiki is now displayed in the Wiki Index.

Backward Compatibility and Migration Notes

General Notes

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.
