Changes from 1.1 Release Candidate 1

Main changes:

  • Bugs fixed:
  • Improved Installers (addition of shortcuts and menu entries creation on both Windows and Unix)

Known issues

Upgrading from any version

Upgrading from 1.1 Milestone 4 doesn't require any special steps, as there weren't any changes in the core structure.

If you've been using XWiki prior to version 1.1 Milestone 4, then you may have noticed that the document version and the history do not match (there's an offset of one in the printed versions, the history being one version smaller). We have fixed this and we are providing a patch for you to run on your wiki installation. To run the patch install the RCS Fix XAR file using the Importer Tool and then go to the XWiki.FixRCS page and follow the instructions.

You only need to run this patch if you're upgrading from a version prior to 1.1 Milestone 4 and if you want the versions displayed in the history to be in sync with the document's version displayed when you view the documents

Follow the instructions below for upgrading from your specific version.

Upgrading from 1.0 or from earlier 1.1 Milestones or Release Candidates

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.

Upgrading from versions earlier than 1.0
