Release Notes for XWiki Enterprise 4.1.2

Last modified by Thomas Mortagne on 2017/03/24

We've found an important issue in this release with our automatic data migration when upgrading from a version earlier than 4.0. Specifically the migration may fail when migrating wikis having stats, see XWIKI-7976 and when migrating DBs that was migrated from MySQL MyISAM previously, see XWIKI-7985. In addition we've also realized that the migration process can be slow on large XWiki databases and we have speed up the process. All these issue are fixed in release 4.1.3.

This release fixes a serious issue preventing the display of differences between versions in both history and Extension Manager.

New and Noteworthy (since XWiki Enterprise 4.1.1)

Full Issue List

JIRA Macro

A new JIRA Macro is now part of the Platform but is not bundled by default (you'll need to install it with the Extension Manager). We previously had a Contributed JIRA Macro but we decided that the JIRA macro was a good candidate to have in the Platform and thus supported by the XWiki Development Team. Compared to the older Contributed JIRA Macro, the new Macro has the following advantages:

  • No Programming Rights required
  • Supports issue ordering
  • Supports ability to register new Styles, new Data Sources and new Field Displayers
  • Displays closed issues as Striked-out
  • Written in Java with automated tests

Backward Compatibility and Migration Notes

General Notes

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

Always make sure you compare your xwiki.cfg and files with the newest version since some configuration parameters were 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.
