In certain situations, it causes group members not to be recognized as such, leading to incorrect access decisions. If you follow the XWiki best practices for setting rights (which recommends to minimize use of denies), this issue will result mostly in unexpected access denials, which obviously does not seriously compromise the security but cause real annoyance to legitimate users.

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.
