<insert description of release here>

New and Noteworthy (since XWiki 6.0 Milestone 2)

Full list of issues fixed and Dashboard for 6.0.

Distribution Wizard improvements

The Extensions step now lets global administrators choose between:

  • computing the upgrade plan for the entire farm
  • computing the upgrade plan only for the main wiki + global namespace

The first option is suited when the farm is managed by a single entity while the second option is suited when each wiki in the farm is managed by a different entity. Obviously computing the upgrade plan for the entire farm takes longer (with the number of wikis) than computing the upgrade plan only for the main wiki.

Extensions are now sorted by their name (but still grouped by wiki) and paginated on the Extensions step.

We also paginated the Wikis step, which could have been pretty long if you had many wikis. See the Distribution Wizard documentation for more information.

Experimental Flamingo Skin

  • The "page export" action is now handled via a modal popup:

Backward Compatibility and Migration Notes

General Notes

When upgrading make sure you compare your xwiki.cfg, xwiki.properties and web.xml files with the newest version since some configuration parameters may have been modified or 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.

Solr Search Index

We made changes to the Solr schema in this release (see XWIKI-10225) and unfortunately we don't have support for automatic Solr search index migration at this point. If you upgrade from XWiki 4.3 Milestone 2 or greater then you have to delete the 'solr' folder from the configured permanent directory of your XWiki instance. The Solr index will be recreated automatically and the entire wiki/farm will be re-indexed after a server restart.

API Breakages

The following APIs were modified since XWiki 5.4.3:
