Release Notes for XWiki 1.1 Enterprise Milestone 3

Version 1.1 Milestone 3 is mostly a bug fix release. There's also been a big internal change in that XWiki has been reorganized to separate the Platform from the Products developed on top of it and a modular automated build system using Maven2 has been setup. This was done to support the multiple products that will be released in the near future: XWiki Enterprise (the current Wiki you've come to know and love), XWiki Enterprise Manager (Multi Wiki management tool), XWiki Watch (social feed reader) and more.

Changes from 1.1 Milestone 2

Main changes:

  • Lots of bugs fixed
  • XWIKI-798 - XWiki does not work on Java 1.6
  • XWIKI-1411 - Allow date format in footer to be customized (for Albatross and Finch skins)
  • XWIKI-1453 - Allow specifying the list of toolbars to display in the WYSIWYG editor
  • XWIKI-1355 - The page displayed by UnknownAction should be configurable
  • XWIKI-1410 - Configurable list of initial groups
  • XWIKI-1372 - Make XWiki platform GWT-ready
+ lots of other changes.

Known issues

Migrating from 1.0 or from earlier 1.1 Milestones

There have been no changes to the database structure so you can simply install this version and configure it to point to your existing database. However you may want to import the default wiki XAR in order to benefit from improvements listed above. You'll find above the list of pages that have been modified so you can restrict your import to those pages if you're already using a XWiki 1.0 XAR.

Migrating from versions earlier than 1.0
