89 * Replace Velocity Date Tool by Velocity Date Comparison Tool which offers even more APIs.
90
91 = Known issues =
92
93 * There's a important bug in the Icon Transformation which makes content not rendered properly if there are partial matches followed by an icon match. See [[XWIKI-5729>>https://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XWIKI-5729]]. You can disable the Icon Transformation by editing the ##xwiki.properties## file if it's causing problems for you.
94 * The Send Page by mail feature currently doesn't work on IPv6 systems if your machine is on localhost. To work around this start your container with ##-Djava.net.preferIPv4Stack=true##.
95 * {{error}}There's a [[bug>>https://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XWIKI-5724]] in the import that will make the Main.Spaces, Main.Activity and XWiki.TagCloud pages not work anymore after they are imported. You need to resave them with a user having Admin rights.{{/error}}
96 * [[Other bugs we know about>>https://jira.xwiki.org/secure/IssueNavigator.jspa?reset=true&&type=1&pid=10010&resolution=-1&sorter/field=updated&sorter/order=DESC]]
97
98 = Backward Compatibility and Migration Notes =
99
100 == General Notes ==
101
102 {{warning}}
103 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,...//.
104 {{/warning}}
105
106 You may also want to [[import the default wiki XAR>>Main.Download]] in order to benefit from the improvements listed above.
107
108 {{warning}}
109 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.
110 {{/warning}}
111
112 == Notes specific to XWiki Enterprise 2.6 ==
113
114 * **The XWiki.XWikiPreferences page must be converted to the xwiki/2.0 syntax**:
115 ** Go to http://yourdomain/xwiki/bin/edit/XWiki/XWikiPreferences?editor=wiki
116 ** Put the following in the content field {{{ {{include document="XWiki.AdminSheet"/}} }}}
117 ** Change the syntax to xwiki/2.0 and press cancel (the automatic conversion would convert fields that must not be converted in the XWikiPreferences object)
118 * The Main.RecentChages page was removed and replaced by Main.Activity
119 * The configuration option controlling the experimental CSRF protection mechanism introduced in 2.5 was changed from ##core.csrf.enabled## to ##csrf.enabled##. If you are using CSRF protection, make sure to re-enable it by setting ##csrf.enabled = true## in ##xwiki.properties##.
120 * The configuration option to define macro categories was changed from ##rendering.macroCategories## to ##rendering.transformation.macro.categories##. If you're using this option make sure you modify its name in ##xwiki.properties##.
