111
112 == General Notes ==
113
114 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.
115
Vincent Massol 8.2 116 == Issues specific to XWiki XWiki 8.1 Milestone 2 ==
Thomas Mortagne 1.1 117
Vincent Massol 12.1 118 * The WebJars URL format has been modified to support relative WebJars URL in subwikis. The new format is {{code language="none"}}/webjars/<namespace>/<path/to/resource>?...{{/code}}. Reminder: you should not use this format directly and instead you should use the Script Service to generate a valid WebJars URL; this isolate you from any URL change. Example from Velocity: {{code language="none"}}$services.webjars.url(...){{/code}}.
