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.

116 * 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##.
