Release Notes for XWiki 9.10-rc-1

Last modified by Thomas Mortagne on 2017/12/11

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

This is mostly a release focusing on improving the new Notifications feature, in order to make it as polished and usable as possible before the end of the year (i.e. before the end of the Cycle and before we elect a new LTS release). It also contains several bug fixes.

New and Noteworthy (since XWiki 9.9)

Full list of issues fixed and Dashboard for 9.10.

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.

Issues specific to XWiki 9.10-rc-1

  • XWiki#getURLContent() and XWiki#getURLContentAsBytes() now require Programming Rights. If you had wiki pages using those API, make sure that they are saved with a user having Programming Rights.
