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

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

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 to your xwiki.cfg file or explicitly name all databases to be migrated as in,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 so that XWiki will attempt to automatically migrate your current database to the new schema. Make sure you backup your Database before doing anything.
