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 release is a stabilization version that fix important bugs discovered in the 6.2 version.

We've discovered an issue with IE9 related to cursor position when editing in the WYSIWYG editor and using the Flamingo skin. If you're using IE9 and Flamingo you may want to postpone any upgrade to 6.2.x till this is fixed in a later bugfix release.

New and Noteworthy (since XWiki 6.2)

Full list of issues fixed and Dashboard for 6.2.1.

Flamingo

  • The "Add" button has now a default action to create a new page. You can still create other kind of contents (Wiki, Space) by using the arrow, just like we do with the different "edit" actions.

  • The Flamingo Theme Application now uses a new Color Picker.

Miscellaneous

  • In the administration, clicking the "Customize" button for customizing a Skin or a Color Theme now opens the page it leads to in edit mode.
  • We have created dedicated groups for Colibri and Flamingo Themes inside the Administration. Every themes can be used with both skins but they looks better when they are used with the corresponding theme.

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.

API Breakages

There is no API breakage since XWiki 6.2.
