This is the release notes for XWiki Commons, XWiki Rendering and XWiki Platform. They share the same release notes as they are released together and have the same version.

This is a bugfix release that covers important issues that we have discovered since 10.11 has been released.

Some important bugs have been discovered since XWiki 10.11.1 has been released:

If one or several of these bugs impact you, then you should wait for the next version of XWiki (10.11.2) that will be released soon!
Note that we still recommend upgrading to this new version if you have 10.11 installed as we have been fixing several major issues since then.

New and Noteworthy (since XWiki 10.11)

Backward Compatibility and Migration Notes

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.

API Breakages

The following APIs were modified since XWiki 10.11:

  • As RssMacro now inherits from AbstractBoxMacro, its parameter class needs to inherits from BoxMacroParameters. This could only break compatibility if a class inheriting from RssMacroParameters defines a method with same name and parameters than in BoxMacroParameters but different return type. We consider this risk as acceptable since the chances are very low and in case it occurs, the fix for the user would be easy.
