Backward Compatibility and Migration Notes

General Notes

If you're running in a multiwiki setup you'll also need to define the property to your xwiki.cfg file or explicitly 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. If you do so make sure you follow the upgrade process in order not to overwrite your existing pages.

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.
