112 == General Notes ==
113
114 {{info}}
115 If you're running in a multiwiki setup you'll also need to define the property //xwiki.store.migration.databases// in your //xwiki.cfg// file if you want to explicitly name some databases to be migrated as the default is now to migrate all databases. Database that are not migrated could not be accessed.
116 {{/info}}
117
118 You may also want to [[import the default wiki XAR>>Main.Download]] in order to benefit from all the improvements listed above.
119
120 {{warning}}
121 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.
122 {{/warning}}
123
124 == Issues specific to XWiki Enterprise 3.5 ==
125
126 * The default configuration property for the permanent directory was renamed from ##container.persistentDirectory## to ##environment.permanentDirectory## in ##xwiki.properties##.
127 * We've disabled support for Event parameters in the Event Stream (this was a feature for developers) because it caused a [[regression of performance in the Activity Stream>>https://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XWIKI-7520]]. We'll put it back when [[we find out to have it and still get good performances>>https://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XWIKI-7554]]. In the meantime if you really need to add this feature back, extract ##activitystream.hbm.xml## located in the Activity Stream JAR in ##WEB-INF/lib## to the ##WEB-INF/classes## directory and uncomment the ##map## mapping in the file.
128 * It seems that [[upgrading from an earlier version to 3.5 when using PostgreSQL fails>>https://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XWIKI-7564]]. The workaround is to extract ##xwiki.hbm.xml## located in the Old Core JAR in ##WEB-INF/lib## to the ##WEB-INF/classes## directory and add the ##materialized_clob## typedef as in:(((
129 {{code}}
130 <hibernate-mapping auto-import="true">
131 ...
132 <typedef name="materialized_clob" class="org.hibernate.type.StringClobType" />
133 ...
134 <class name="com.xpn.xwiki.doc.XWikiDocument" table="xwikidoc">
135 ...
136 {{/code}}
