Release Notes for XWiki Enterprise 1.2 Release Candidate 2

This is the second release candidate for the 1.2 version. It fixes a lot more than was initially planned for this RC, mainly bugs/improvements for stabilizing the database migration process and consolidating the new Rights Management UI, but contains bugfixes for other features, too. 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. The final 1.2 release is currently planned for mid-January.

Changes from XWiki Enterprise 1.2 RC 1

  • Lots of bugs fixed in the new Rights Management UI
  • The archive migration process is a bit faster and continues from the last processed document if restarted
  • Deleting versions from the history used to break the history for upgraded archives, causing problems when viewing the history, exporting a document, deleting/renaming a document
  • Multiwiki issues with the search pages
  • Exceptions while exporting a document are now reported and ignored, instead of breaking the whole export process
  • Linking to a heading shows the heading below the action menu, not behind it
  • Editing newly created users failed
  • Fixed "data truncation" errors which occurred under certain mysql versions/configurations
  • Switching tabs in Administration now releases the edit locks
  • XWiki returned invalid URLs when the server port is not defined (i.e. when it's 80)
  • XWiki.searchDocuments(String, boolean, int, int) did not use "distinctbylanguage" parameter
  • Fixed a few WISYWIG editor bugs concerning attachments and some missing resource bundles
+ other changes (Platform, XWiki Enterprise)

Known issues

Migrating from 1.1.2 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 1.2RC2. 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 1.1.2
