Release Notes for XWiki 15.10.9

Last modified by Simon Urli on 2024/05/23

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 to fix important bugs found after releasing XWiki 15.10.8 and some security issues. It also contains stabilization improvements and bug fixes to the Realtime WYSIWYG editor that is now bundled but disabled by default.

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.

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 15.10.9

Realtime WYSIWYG Editor

If you have previously installed the Realtime WYSIWYG Editor extension and enabled realtime collaboration by default by changing the "Default WYSIWYG Editor" setting from the "Editing / WYSIWYG Editor" administration section, then you need to revert this change and instead remove "xwiki-realtime" from the list of disabled CKEditor plugins from the same administration section.

If you haven't enabled realtime editing before but you have a custom list of disabled CKEditor plugins, then you need to add "xwiki-realtime" to that list, otherwise realtime editing will be enabled by default after you upgrade.
