123 123  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.

120 +* Since we've modified content of the Quick Links Panel, the Distribution Wizard may detect a merge conflict if this panel was customized. In addition, the Quick Links panel may disappear after an upgrade to 8.1M1+. You can add it back from the administration UI if you want to keep it (e.g. if it has been customized).
121 +* The WebJars URL format has been modified to support relative WebJars URL in subwikis. The new format is {{code language="none"}}/webjars/<namespace>/<path/to/resource>?...{{/code}}. Reminder: you should not use this format directly and instead you should use the Script Service to generate a valid WebJars URL; this isolate you from any URL change. Example from Velocity: {{code language="none"}}$services.webjars.url(...){{/code}}.
122 +* The ##xwiki.usedefaultweb## parameter has been removed from ##xwii.cfg##. This parameter had not been working since XWiki 7.2-milestone-1; when we introduced Nested Pages we had to make a choice and we decided to support addressing top-level Nested Pages without having to have ##WebHome## in the URL (nor having to finish URLs with a trailing ##/##). For example, ##http:~/~/<server>/xwiki/bin/view/something## points to ##something.WebHome## by default since XWiki 7.2-milestone-1.
