Last modified by Ilie Andriuta on 2023/03/27

This is the release notes for XWiki Commons, XWiki Rendering and XWiki Platform. They share the same release notes as they are released together and have the same version.

This is a bug fix release that contains several bug fixes, including security fixes.

The following regressions were introduced in this release (and found after it was released). Please check them out and if they impact you we recommend waiting to upgrade to a version where they are fixed.

Security Issues

Security issues are not listed in issue lists or dashboards to avoid disclosing ways to use them, but they will appear automatically in them once they're disclosed. See the XWiki Security Policy for more details.

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
    • web.xml
    • hibernate.cfg.xml
  • Add 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.

Issues specific to XWiki 14.10.7

Old or deleted revisions of documents are displayed in a restricted mode that prevents the execution of script macros. This also affects the rendered diff. This may lead to unexpected errors, a warning for this is displayed for advanced users or if there is an actual error in the output. The same applies to the edit action if the request is not verified with a form token - the standard ways for creating documents shouldn't be affected by this but custom implementations might need to be adapted to avoid being affected by this change. In case you're using a lot of script macros in regular content, you could consider creating and using wiki macros instead that cover your most-used script features.

API Breakages

The following APIs were modified since XWiki 14.10.6:

Real breakages

Real backward compatibility breakages that we have unwillingly accepted to do for the reasons mentioned in each violation below.

  • Change needed to provide a merge operation taking into account the configuration: we cannot provide a default method as it would wrongly give the feeling that the operation succeeded. We consider this breaking change acceptable since it's unlikely anyone directly implements this interface.
    • Violation type:
    • Code:
      ## Old:

      ## New:
      method<com.xpn.xwiki.objects.ElementInterface, java.lang.Object> com.xpn.xwiki.objects.ElementInterface::merge(com.xpn.xwiki.objects.ElementInterface, com.xpn.xwiki.objects.ElementInterface, com.xpn.xwiki.doc.merge.MergeConfiguration, com.xpn.xwiki.XWikiContext)
