5 This is the release notes for [[XWiki Commons>>http://commons.xwiki.org]], [[XWiki Rendering>>http://rendering.xwiki.org]] and [[XWiki Platform>>http://platform.xwiki.org]]. They share the same release notes as they are released together and have the same version.

7 This release brings WYSIWYG editor integration with comments and annotations, allowing for easy insertion of mentions into comments and annotations. Talking about mentions, the mention summary is now included in the notification message. As for the notifications, they are now pre-filtered when the event occurs and stored (also) on a separate Solr core, which improves considerably the time spent to retrieve and display them. For developers we have a new "content footer" UI extension point that might be of interest. Besides that this release includes, as usual, a fair amount of bug fixes and other small improvements.

10 Some important bugs have been discovered since XWiki 12.6 has been released:
11
12 * [[Mention-related stackraces in the XWiki logs>>https://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XWIKI-17619]]. Specifially:(((
13 XWiki 12.6.1+ and 12.7+ will include a fix for this issue. In the meantime, restarting the server fixes the issue and allows the mentions to work properly.
14 )))
15 * [[Keyboard shortcuts are not working for advanced mode/hidden pages  >>https://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XWIKI-17614]].
16 The shortcuts are still working when the Default editor to use is set to //Text// in the user's preferences. The advanced mode and displaying of hidden page can also be configured from the user's preferences.
17
18 If one or several of these bugs impact you, then you should use the next version once it has been released.

81 = Backward Compatibility and Migration Notes =
82
83 == General Notes ==
84
85 * When upgrading make sure you compare and merge the following XWiki configuration files since some parameters may have been modified, removed or added:
86 ** ##xwiki.cfg##
87 ** ##xwiki.properties##
88 ** ##web.xml##
89 ** ##hibernate.cfg.xml##
90 * 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.
91
92 == Issues specific to XWiki 12.6 ==
93
94 === New event store and pre filtering by default ===
95
96 Even if it was implemented along the course of 12.x it's still the first time that this is enabled for most users so don't hesitate to report any notification related issue to [[https://jira.xwiki.org/projects/XWIKI]].
97
98 If you hit a blocker bug you can go back to:
99
100 * post filtering of event using the property ##notifications.eventPrefilteringEnabled## in ##xwiki.properties##
101 * use only the database store by disabling the new one using the property ##eventstream.store.enabled## in ##xwiki.properties##
102
103 Right now old events are not automatically migrated so when you upgrade they will appear to have vanished. A tool to import them will be provided in 12.6.1.
104
105 === DocumentReference and SpaceReference converters behavior change ===
106
107 ##DocumentReference## and ##SpaceReference## now always serialize absolute references instead of references relative to the current context (including absolute reference when executed from a different wiki). Since the converters are meant to produce values that can be unserialized they can't loose any information.
108
109 The main use case where those converters are used is when a Velocity script calls a method taking a ##String## as parameter and pass a ##DocumentReference## or a ##SpaceReference##. It should not have much impact in practice since an API which takes a document reference in parameter is supposed to support all forms of reference (especially since this converter was producing various forms of references).
110
111 == API Breakages ==
112
113 The following APIs were modified since XWiki 12.5.1:
