General Notes

  • When upgrading make sure you compare and merge the following XWiki configuration files since some parameters may have been modified, removed or added:
    • xwiki.cfg
    • xwiki.properties
    • web.xml
    • hibernate.cfg.xml
  • Add xwiki.store.migration=1 in xwiki.cfg so that XWiki will attempt to automatically migrate your current database to any new schema. Make sure you backup your Database before doing anything.

Issues specific to XWiki 11.0 Release Candidate 1

New filesystem store paths

The paths of the filesystem store have been completely modified and the store itself is now at a different location:

  • moved from <permdir>/storage to <permdir>/store/file/ to give room for potential future store implementations based on the filesystem
  • moved from complete hierarchy-based encoded URLs to reference hashes (to fix the issue with some languages)

In most cases there is nothing to do since a migration will take care of the upgrade automatically. However if you were directly manipulating the old stored files (something you shoudln't do!) it won't work anymore and you'll need to adjust your script/code.

Legacy profile

Extension Manager now automatically activate the legacy profile when reading a pom.
