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. In addition we've also realized that the migration process can be slow on large XWiki databases and we're looking for ways to speed up the process. We'll probably release a 4.1.3 version real soon.

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)

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

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,....

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 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.

Issues specific to XWiki Enterprise 4.1.2
