152 = Backward Compatibility and Migration Notes =
153
154 == General Notes ==
155
156 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.
157
Vincent Massol 24.1 158 == Issues specific to XWiki 7.3-milestone-1 ==
Thomas Mortagne 1.1 159
Vincent Massol 24.1 160 * If you had modified the custom displayer for Time Zones in either ##XWiki.XWikiUsers## or ##XWiki.XWikiPreferences## then when upgrading to 7.3M1 your change will be removed. This is because we've introduced a Time Zone XProperty type which is replacing the String type used before for storing the Time Zones. If you wish to put back your change you can define a custom displayer on the new Time Zone XProperty in ##XWiki.XWikiUsers## or ##XWiki.XWikiPreferences##.
Marius Dumitru Florea 47.1 161 * In order to add support for Slovak and Brazilian Portuguese languages to the Solr search we had to modify the Solr schema and unfortunately we don't have support for automatic Solr search index migration at this point. If you want to support these languages you have to delete the 'solr' folder from the configured permanent directory of your XWiki instance. The Solr index will be recreated automatically and the entire wiki/farm (including the pages in the Slovak and Brazilian Portuguese language) will be re-indexed after a server restart.
