First and hopefully last release candidate of the XWiki Enterprise 3.0 version (Roadmap).

New and Noteworthy (since XWiki Enterprise 3.0 Milestone 3)

Administration section for the WYSIWYG editor

The WYSIWYG content editor can now be easily configured from the wiki administration. Look for the WYSIWYG Editor section under Applications menu. You may still need to scan the list of available plugins and features in order to know what to enable. In the future we're hoping to integrate this information in the administration section.

Test Report

You can check the manual test report to learn about what was tested and the results on various browsers.

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.

XWiki Enterprise 3.0 Release Candidate 1 specific notes

  • Due to the package rename done for XWIKI-6158 when upgrading from 2.x to 3.0 you must edit your web.xml file and replace all occurrences of com.xpn.xwiki.wysiwyg with org.xwiki.wysiwyg.
