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

The following APIs were modified since XWiki 6.2.2:

  • Changed the LESSCache interface and the LESS Script Service because the cache was poorly designed (see: https://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XWIKI-10776 )
    org.xwiki.lesscss.LESSCache: Method 'public void clear(java.lang.String)' has been removed
    org.xwiki.lesscss.LESSCache: Method 'public void clearFromColorTheme(java.lang.String)' has been added to an interface
    org.xwiki.lesscss.LESSCache: Method 'public void clearFromFileSystemSkin(java.lang.String)' has been added to an interface
    org.xwiki.lesscss.LESSCache: In method 'public java.lang.Object get(java.lang.String, java.lang.String, java.lang.String, java.lang.String)' the number of arguments has changed
    org.xwiki.lesscss.LESSCache: In method 'public void set(java.lang.String, java.lang.String, java.lang.String, java.lang.String, java.lang.Object)' the number of arguments has changed
    org.xwiki.lesscss.LessCompilerScriptService: Method 'public boolean clearCache(java.lang.String)' has been removed
