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 14.10.8

The REST API now requires a form token for certain requests, see its documentation for details.

In the office document importer, the API of OfficeDocument for imported artifacts like images has been changed to use a map from filenames to a new type OfficeDocumentArtifact instead of a set of files. Any code that relies on the old method to get a set of files won't get access to the artifacts. Further, artifacts from custom implementations of OfficeDocument might not be imported. This could cause broken images in case of custom code or extensions. All usages of this API in XWiki itself have been adjusted so no breakage without custom code or extensions is expected. All APIs related to this breakage are marked @Unstable (a.k.a Young APIs). Backwards compatibility for the non-unstable (but deprecated) API was actually improved as part of this change.

API Breakages

The following APIs were modified since XWiki 14.10.7:

No breakage!
