5 This is the first bugfix release for the 3.5 series, and, since 3.5 is the final major release in the 3.x cycle, a bugfix release for the whole 3.x cycle. The main focus has been on quality assurance, improving the compatibility with various database systems, polishing the new sheet mechanism, the new extension manager, the skin, the WYSIWYG, and other parts of the XWiki platform.

9 == Database compatibility improvements ==
10
11 In XWiki 3.2 we [[upgraded to a new version of Hibernate and polished our mapping files>>ReleaseNotes.ReleaseNotesXWikiEnterprise32||anchor="HStorageimprovements"]], for improved performance and better consistency across different RDBMSs. However, this wasn't properly tested and caused upgrade problems when using Oracle or PostgreSQL. This release remedies the situation, and 3.5.1 has been fully tested both with new installations and with upgrades on all the [[supported databases>>dev:Community.DatabaseSupportStrategy]].
12
13 * [[XWIKI-7539>>https://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XWIKI-7539]] - Hibernate versioning broken with non-ascii characters when using a PostgreSQL database
14 * [[XWIKI-7564>>https://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XWIKI-7564]] - Upgrade from a version before 3.3 fails when running on a PostgreSQL database
15 * [[XWIKI-7644>>https://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XWIKI-7644]] - Add support for PostgreSQL as a known DatabaseProduct

21
22 == Skin improvements ==
23
24 In XWiki 3.4 we refreshed a bit the Colibri skin, towards a more modern look, with rounded corners and gradients. Unfortunately, this change was not perfectly backwards incompatible with older color themes, possibly causing some custom color themes to be "broken". We improved the skin in this version to better support both old and new color themes, enabling gradients only when the color theme properly defines gradients. We've also improved the color theme wizard to support the new gradients.
25
26 * [[XWIKI-7597>>https://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XWIKI-7597]] - Add new colortheme variables for the gradients introduced by 3.4 and allow their modification from the colorthemes wizard

134 == General Notes ==
135
136 {{warning}}
137 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,...//.
138 {{/warning}}
139
140 You may also want to [[import the default wiki XAR>>Main.Download]] in order to benefit from all the improvements listed above.
141
142 {{warning}}
143 Always make sure you compare your ##xwiki.cfg## and ##xwiki.properties## files with the newest version since some configuration parameters were added. Note that 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.
144 {{/warning}}
145
146 == Issues specific to the 3.5.1 version ==
147
148 As stated above in the [[Database compatibility improvements>>ReleaseNotesXWikiEnterprise351||anchor="HDatabasecompatibilityimprovements"]] section, in XWiki 3.2 we changed the Hibernate mapping files which caused some incompatibilities for PostgreSQL and Oracle databases. All new installations should work without any problems, and upgrades from older versions have been thoroughly tested and there shouldn't be any problems except the one noted below. However, given that some column types have changed between since older versions, **do make a backup of your database first**. If you encounter any problems, please [[report them>>https://jira.xwiki.org/]].
149
150 === Upgrade from a version between 3.2 and 3.5 to 3.5.1 on PostgreSQL ===
151
152 The mapping file for PostgreSQL was broken for these versions, causing [[XWIKI-7539>>https://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XWIKI-7539]], so all history entries containing non-ASCII characters were broken. This data loss is permanent and can't be undone, there's no way of getting back a valid history from the database. While we tried to fix as many history entries as possible, this kind of entries will remain broken, leading to inaccessible older versions for some documents. We kept valid the history meta data though, so you can still see when and by whom each version was created.
153
154 == API Breakages ==
155
156 No APIs were modified since 3.5.
