Known issues

Backward Compatibility and Migration Notes

General Notes

  • When upgrading make sure you compare and merge the following XWiki configuration files since some parameters may have been modified, removed or added:
    • xwiki.cfg
    • xwiki.properties
    • web.xml
    • hibernate.cfg.xml
  • 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.

API Breakages

The following APIs were modified since XWiki 14.10.16:

Unstable APIs

Not real backward compatibility breakages since they were done on APIs marked @Unstable (a.k.a Young APIs). Thus it's part of the contract that they can be broken until they become stable. They're listed purely for reference in case you decided to still use them (and thus agreed to be broken).

  • Remove unstable API that was added by mistake.
    • Violation type:
      java.method.removed
    • Code:
      ## Old:
      method org.xwiki.bridge.DocumentModelBridge org.xwiki.bridge.DocumentAccessBridge::getCurrentDocument()
  • Remove unstable API that was added by mistake.
    • Violation type:
      java.method.removed
    • Code:
      ## Old:
      method org.xwiki.bridge.DocumentModelBridge com.xpn.xwiki.doc.DefaultDocumentAccessBridge::getCurrentDocument()
