33 == General Notes ==
34
35 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.

37 == Issues specific to XWiki 7.4.1 ==
38
39 == Mail API Unique Message Identifier ==
40
41 In order to solve [[XWIKI-12165>>https://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XWIKI-12165]], the unique identifier of each mime message sent has been changed to a SHA1 based on the ##Message-ID## header and the list of recipients of the mails, ensuring uniqueness during a newsletter or mailing sending. To introduce this change, the ##MailContentStore## and the ##MailListener API## has been broken, and now use a new ExtendedMimeMessage instead of the simple ##MimeMessage## for all arguments. The values ##messageId## returned or used as argument in the API is no more equivalent to the ##Message-ID## header, but is now the unique identifier returned by ##ExtendedMimeMessage#getUniqueMessageId()##. Finally, the ##MessageMimeMessageFactory## now returns cloned ##MimeMessage## without changing the ##Message-ID##.
42
43 == New Space prefix for wiki links ==
44
45 We've introduced the possibility to explicitly create a link to a Space in XWiki Syntax 2.1, e.g. ##~[~[space:Space1.Space2]]##. However if you had a subwiki named ##space## the new notation will conflict with the syntax for referencing that wiki. Thus you'll need to edit existing links such as ##~[~[space:something]]## to ##~[~[doc:space:something]]##. And if you wish to reference a given space in the ##space## subwiki, you'd write ##~[~[space:space:something]]##.

47 == API Breakages ==

49 The following APIs were modified since XWiki 7.4:
