Miscellaneous

  • The standalone distribution now uses Jetty 9.2.3.v20140905 (was using version 8.1.15.v20140411 in XWiki 6.3-milestone-1). This should be transparent for the user since XWiki provides its own start/stop scripts around Jetty.
  • The Delete Space feature now lists the documents inside the space you are going to delete. This should help people differentiate between the UI of Delete Page and the UI of Delete Space so that fewer mistakes occur when not paying much attention:

Backward Compatibility and Migration Notes

General Notes

When upgrading make sure you compare your xwiki.cfg, xwiki.properties and web.xml files with the newest version since some configuration parameters may have been modified or 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.
