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 11.6:

  • Not an API breakage (we replaced it with a generic get() method that can also be used to access $services.diff.display)
    • Violation type:
      java.method.removed
    • Code:
      ## Old:
      method org.xwiki.script.service.ScriptService org.xwiki.diff.script.DiffScriptService::getDisplay()
