Performances tests compared to 6.4.5

There hasn't really been much performance work on this version so we get mostly the same result than in 7.1 release note. The important point here was to check if nested spaces ha much impact on performances.


"similar": difference is lower than 10%
"slightly": difference is lower than 20%

Note hat most of the speed related values are an average of very moving results, a lot of things is happening during a HTTP request and it's far from stable duration (that's why 10% may sounds a lot for something called "similar" but the variable can go up and down around 5% sometimes so 10% average is really not that much of a clear win).

Backward Compatibility and Migration Notes

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.
