Miscellaneous

  • The XAR plugin's verify mojo has been improved to allow passing a list of regexes to identify content and technical pages. For example:
    <plugin>
     <groupId>org.xwiki.commons</groupId>
     <artifactId>xwiki-commons-tool-xar-plugin</artifactId>
    ...
     <configuration>
    ...
       <!-- Consider all pages named *Translations as content pages by default -->
       <contentPages>
         <contentPage>.*Translations\.xml</contentPage>
       </contentPages>
       <!-- The EditTranslations page is not a Translation page and thus not a content page! -->
       <technicalPages>
         <technicalPage>EditTranslations\.xml</technicalPage>
       </technicalPages>
     </configuration>
    </plugin>
  • New $services.rendering.escape($content, $syntax) method to escape XWiki syntax. See the documentation.

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.
