107
108 == General Notes ==
109
110 {{warning}}
111 If you're running in a multiwiki setup you'll also need to define the property //xwiki.store.migration.databases=all// to your //xwiki.cfg// file or explicitly name all databases to be migrated as in //xwiki.store.migration.databases=db1,db2,...//.
112 {{/warning}}
113
114 You may also want to [[import the default wiki XAR>>Main.Download]] in order to benefit from all the improvements listed above.
115
116 {{warning}}
117 Always make sure you compare your ##xwiki.cfg## and ##xwiki.properties## files with the newest version since some configuration parameters were 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.
118 {{/warning}}
119
120 == Issues specific to XWiki Enterprise 3.5 ==
121
122 * The default configuration property for the permanent directory was renamed from ##container.persistentDirectory## to ##environment.permanentDirectory## in ##xwiki.properties##.
123 * We've disabled support for Event parameters in the Event Stream (this was a feature for developers) because it caused a [[regression of performance in the Activity Stream>>http://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XWIKI-7520]]. We'll put it back when [[we find out to have it and still get good performances>>http://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XWIKI-7554]]. In the meantime if you really need to add this feature back, extract ##activitystream.hbm.xml## located in the Activity Stream JAR in ##WEB-INF/lib## to the ##WEB-INF/classes## directory and uncomment the ##map## mapping in the file.
124 * It seems that [[upgrading from an earlier version to 3.5 when using PostgreSQL fails>>http://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XWIKI-7564]]. The workaround is to extract ##xwiki.hbm.xml## located in the Old Core JAR in ##WEB-INF/lib## to the ##WEB-INF/classes## directory and add the ##materialized_clob## typedef as in:(((
125 {{code}}
126 <hibernate-mapping auto-import="true">
127 ...
128 <typedef name="materialized_clob" class="org.hibernate.type.StringClobType" />
129 ...
130 <class name="com.xpn.xwiki.doc.XWikiDocument" table="xwikidoc">
131 ...
