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.

Removed pages

 

  • Main.RecentMembers as been removed from default XWiki Enterprise xar

API Breakages

The following APIs were modified since XWiki Enterprise 2.2RC1:

  • All resolvers based on current context informations are now using the context wiki as default wiki instead of the current document wiki
