Release Notes for XWiki Enterprise 1.2 Release Candidate 1

This is the first release candidate for the 1.2 version. It is mostly a bugfix/improvements release. There are still a few bugs that should be fixed before the final 1.2 version, so a second RC will follow shortly. The main purpose of the Release Candidates is to let the users test it, so that we don't ship a buggy "stable" version, so please download it, use it and report any problems you encounter on the bugtracker.

Changes from XWiki Enterprise 1.2 Milestone 2

Known issues

Migrating from 1.1.1 or later

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 1.2RC1. Thus 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.

Migrating from versions earlier than 1.1.1
