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

This releases is mostly focused on usability improvements. It adds support for batch restore of deleted pages from the recycle bin. The content menu has received some polishing. The live notification system has been improved to group similar notification messages and to show notifications for page comments. The history of an extension page now includes a special revision that corresponds to the extension version so it is easier to "reset to factory defaults". Finally, the Help Center and the Menu application are now part of the default XWiki distribution.

As usual, this version also brings bug corrections.

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.
