First and hopefully last release candidate of the XWiki Enterprise 2.5 version (Roadmap).

This is mostly a bugfixing release before the 2.5 final.

New and Noteworthy (since XWiki Enterprise 2.5 Milestone 2)

New features

New macros for the Space List and Tag Cloud; display user avatars in annotations.

Performance improvements

Fixed a performance issue with the Jump To Page feature.

Security improvements

Fixed a few XSS bugs, fixed a broken check on rights from the Rest system, fixed a missing author update when editing classes.

Translations

  • All the translations have been updated

Known issues

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 xwiki.store.migration.databases=db1,db2,....

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

Always make sure you compare your xwiki.cfg file with the newest version since some configuration parameters were added. 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.
