First Release Candidate of the XWiki Enterprise 1.9 version (Roadmap).

Summary of changes since XWiki Enterprise 1.9 Milestone 2

Warning: The default syntax is now 'xwiki/2.0' which means that new documents will be created with this syntax

Note that XWiki Enterprise documents (user profile, recent changes, etc) are still using the "xwiki/1.0" syntax, they will be migrated during the 2.0 release cycle.

Common Migration notes

Warning: The default encoding was changed from ISO-8859-1 to UTF-8. If you were using the old default encoding and a database using character encodings, you must convert the database data, too, or switch XWiki back to the old encoding
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 explicitly 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.
