Release Notes for XWiki 6.4.3

Version 4.1 by Denis Gervalle on 2015/04/15

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

This is a stabilization release that fixes important bugs discovered in the 6.4.2 version.

This release introduce a new internal group cache in the security module. This group cache is affected by a serious issue. In certain situations, it causes group members not to be recognized as such, leading to incorrect access decisions. If you follow the XWiki best practices for setting rights (which recommends to minimize use of denies), this issue will result mostly in unexpected access denials, which obviously does not seriously compromise the security but cause real annoyance to legitimate users. See for more technical detail about this issue.

General Notes

When upgrading make sure you compare your xwiki.cfg, and web.xml files with the newest version since some configuration parameters may have been modified or 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.
