16 This is the release notes for [[XWiki Commons>>http://commons.xwiki.org]], [[XWiki Rendering>>http://rendering.xwiki.org]] and [[XWiki Platform>>http://platform.xwiki.org]]. They share the same release notes as they are released together and have the same version.

18 This is the first release of 14.x cycle which introduces the drop of Java 8: XWiki now requires Java 11 to work. As part of this cycle we're also dropping support of Internet Explorer 11. This release includes new work to allow refactoring of attachments, a few new UI extension points for developpers and better explanatory messages when macro are missing, among other improvments.

133 == General Notes ==
134
135 * When upgrading make sure you compare and merge the following XWiki configuration files since some parameters may have been modified, removed or added:
136 ** ##xwiki.cfg##
137 ** ##xwiki.properties##
138 ** ##web.xml##
139 ** ##hibernate.cfg.xml##
140 * Add ##xwiki.store.migration=1## in ##xwiki.cfg## so that XWiki will attempt to automatically migrate your current database to any new schema. Make sure you backup your Database before doing anything.

144 === Drop support of Java 8 ===
145
146 XWiki now [[requires Java 11>>dev:Community.SupportStrategy.JavaSupportStrategy]] to run.

151
152 === Drop support of Internet Explorer 11 ===
153
154 Internet Explorer 11 support has been [[dropped>>https://forum.xwiki.org/t/drop-support-for-ie11-in-xwiki-14-0/9647/]]: we removed most of the hacks that were required by IE11 which makes this new version of XWiki unusable with this old web browser. Check the [[Browser Support Strategy>>dev:Community.SupportStrategy.BrowserSupportStrategy]] documentation to see the list of supported web browsers.
155
156 === Mentions ===
157
158 A local database is stored in the permanent directories and stores the updated document that needs to be analyzed for new mentions. This database is based on [[H2 MVStore>>url:https://www.h2database.com/html/mvstore.html]]. When upgrading to 14.0RC1+ the file format of H2 MVStore changes and the old one becomes unsupported. The old database file is moved to a backup file, and a new one is created.
159
160 {{warning}}
161 In this case, any updated document queued for upgrade when the server is stopped will be discarded, and some users will not be notified of their mentions.
162 Please make sure that the queue size is at zero before upgrading (see [[JMX>>doc:extensions:Extension.Mentions Application.WebHome||anchor="HJMX"]]).
