Release Notes for XWiki 5.0.2

Last modified by Thomas Mortagne on 2017/03/24

We have found an important regression in this release: the Add > Page and Add > Page from Office menu entries are not visible in some cases for simple users (with no administration rights). See XWIKI-9183 for more details. The problem is going to be fixed in 5.0.3 and 5.1 Milestone 2. We are very sorry for the inconvenience.

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

This is a bugfix release.

New and Noteworthy (since XWiki 5.0.1)

Backward Compatibility and Migration Notes

General Notes

You may also want to import the default wiki XAR in order to benefit from all the improvements listed above.

Always make sure you compare your xwiki.cfg and files with the newest version since some configuration parameters were added. Note that you should add so that XWiki will attempt to automatically migrate your current database to the new schema. Make sure you backup your Database before doing anything.
