Common Migration notes

The database structure has been changed but we have set up an automatic migration system so you shouldn't have to touch your Database to upgrade to 1.4M2. Thus you can simply install this version and configure it to point to your existing database. 

If you're running in a multiwiki setup you'll also need to define the property to your xwiki.cfg file or explicitely name all databases to be migrated as in,db2,....

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

Always make sure you compare your xwiki.cfg file with the newest version since some configuration parameters were added. Of note, 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.
