56 * Application Manager moved to Contrib (https://github.com/xwiki-contrib/xwiki-platform-application-manager), it can still be installed as extension if required

83
84 == General Notes ==
85
86 When upgrading make sure you compare your ##xwiki.cfg##, ##xwiki.properties## and ##web.xml## files with the newest version since some configuration parameters may have been modified or added. Note that you should add ##xwiki.store.migration=1## so that XWiki will attempt to automatically migrate your current database to the new schema. Make sure you backup your Database before doing anything.
87
88 == Issues specific to XWiki 8.3 Milestone 1 ==
89
90 === LDAP Module moved to Contrib ===
91
92 The module containing among other things the standard LDAP authenticator has been moved to http://github.com/xwiki-contrib/ldap and is not embedded anymore in XE. Starting with 8.3M1 you need to install it if you want to use it. See http://extensions.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Extension/LDAP/#H8.3.x for more details on what between the XWiki Platform module and the new Contrib Extension.
93
94 === Cache module moved to XWiki Commons ===
95
96 The only thing that changed is the id of the modules. If you have any dependency on those you just need to change ##org.xwiki.platform:xwiki-platform-*## to ##org.xwiki.commons:xwiki-commons-*##
97
98 == API Breakages ==
99
100 No API has been broken since XWiki 8.2.1!
