Backward Compatibility and Migration Notes

General Notes

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 <tt>xwiki.store.migration.databases=db1,db2,....

You may also want to import the default wiki XAR in order to benefit from improvements listed above.

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.

Captcha

Captcha related configuration changed in Struts configuration file. If you keep the old file it will fail silently so make sure to use the proper configuration you can find in the new file (or overwrite it it if you don't have any local modification obviously).

API Breakages

The following APIs were modified since XWiki Enterprise 2.2M2:

  • CoreConguration#getSyntax now returns a Syntax object instead of a String
