Thomas Mortagne 36.1 10 A few hours after the release was done we've realized that this version [[contains a bug>>https://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XE-1353]] that makes it not usable as is: it's missing 2 important pages: ##XWiki.XWikiAdminGroup## and ##XWiki.XWikiAllGroup##. If you plan to use this version make sure you import those 2 pages from this [[XWiki 5.3 XAR>>http://maven.xwiki.org/releases/org/xwiki/platform/xwiki-platform-administration-ui/5.3/xwiki-platform-administration-ui-5.3.xar]] for example. Otherwise please use XWiki 5.4 RC1 or later.

Thomas Mortagne 36.1 12 It also seems upgrade from a previous version to this one is broken (some that are deleted while they should not). See [[the issue>>https://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XWIKI-9863]] for details.

76 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.
