Release Notes for XWiki Enterprise 1.5 Release Candidate 1

First release candidate of the XWiki Enterprise 1.5 version (Roadmap).

Main changes since XWiki Enterprise 1.5 Milestone 2

  • Updated french translation
  • Updated spanish translation
  • LDAP authenticator no longer creates a local user if it exists at the global level
  • Mail sender plugin now supports SMTP authentication
  • Arguments passed to radeox macros like {image} or {attach} are not rendered anymore
  • UTF-8 characters are now all correctly rendered in PDF exports
  • Statistics database mapping working well under oracle

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 1.5RC1. 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.
