Release Notes for XWiki Enterprise 1.2.1

This is a bug fix release. The highlight of this release is that it fixes a bug when creating Users or Groups and fixes a Lucene issue in multiwiki mode.

Summary of changes since XWiki Enterprise 1.2

Bug fixed:

  • XWIKI-1880 - Exception in the console when editing groups using the new UI
  • XWIKI-2027 - Lucene plugin filter some pages in the search result list
  • XWIKI-2028 - Can't delete document using Document.delete if user does not have programming rights

Improvements:
  • XWIKI-2036 - Display the date in the logs
  • XWIKI-2044 - Modify the database migrator that aligns RCS Diffs data so that it can be executed even after the migrator that removes RCS data from the document table has executed
New Features:
  • XWIKI-1672 - Add API to delete a given wiki in a multi-wiki setup

Known issues

  • Bugs we know about
  • The watchlist feature doesn't fully work yet when XWiki used in virtual mode and thus the Watchlist menu is automatically disabled and hidden in that mode.
Error: If you're migrating an old multi wiki install see XWIKI-2066.

Error: If you're using Oracle, you'll need to upgrade the Hibernate JAR version used by XWiki by replacing the WEB-INF/lib/hibernate-3.1.3.jar file with this file (Hibernate version 3.2.5.ga, which solves an issue in Hibernate 3.1.3). See XWIKI-2009.

Common Migration notes

The database structure has been changed but we have set up an automatic migration system so you shouldn't have to touch your Database to upgrade to 1.2.1. Thus you can simply install this version and configure it to point to your existing database.

Warning: If you're running in a multiwiki setup you'll also need to define the property xwiki.store.migration.databases=all to your xwiki.cfg file or explicitely name all databases to be migrated as in xwiki.store.migration.databases=db1,db2,....

You may also want to import the default wiki XAR in order to benefit from improvements listed above.

Warning: Always make sure you compare your xwiki.cfg file with the newest version since some configuration parameters were added. Of note, 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.

Migrating from 1.1.2 or later

Nothing additional to perform.

Migrating from versions earlier than 1.1.2
