5 This is the release notes for [[XWiki Commons>>http://commons.xwiki.org]], [[XWiki Rendering>>http://rendering.xwiki.org]], [[XWiki Platform>>http://platform.xwiki.org]] and [[XWiki Enterprise>>http://enterprise.xwiki.org]]. They share the same release notes as they are released together and have the same version.
6
7 This release introduces a new feature for the Notifications: the Watched Entities. It is disabled by default but you should try it to experiment it because it will replace the Watchlist Application soon.
8
9 For the users, we now have more usable notification filter settings and a nice helper when you edit a "Database List" field.
10
11 For developers, it is easier to propose an extension containing REST resources, or to customize the Flamingo LESS code. We have also exposes more database columns in the Query Module for users who don't have the programming rights. The notification filters AST (Abstract Syntax Tree) proposes new types of nodes to create complex filter queries. There are also new facilities to avoid using SyntaxFactory, to make Extension Manager faster, or to identify skins elements with proper IDs.
12
13 As usual, this release brings bug fixes (15 in this one!).

56 = Backward Compatibility and Migration Notes =
57
58 == General Notes ==
59
60 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.
61
62 == Database List Property Values ==
63
64 We fixed a few security issues around Database List properties by:
65
66 * restricting the type of explicit query you can use on the Database List definition based on the class author rights
67 * evaluating the Velocity code from the explicit query only if the class author has script right
68 * checking if the current user has the right to view the returned values (when implicit query is used)
69
70 This may break existing applications if they use Database List properties and the last author of the class that holds the property definition doesn't have sufficient rights.
71
72 == API Breakages ==
73
74 The following APIs were modified since XWiki 9.7:
