Thomas Mortagne 23.1 7 First and hopefully last release candidate before 6.0 final. This release contain mostly improvements on Distribution Wizard and new experimental Flamingo skin.

Marius Dumitru Florea 3.1 13 == Distribution Wizard improvements ==
Marius Dumitru Florea 1.1 14
Marius Dumitru Florea 3.1 15 The Extensions step now lets global administrators choose between:
Marius Dumitru Florea 1.1 16
Marius Dumitru Florea 3.1 17 * computing the upgrade plan for the entire farm
18 * computing the upgrade plan only for the main wiki + global namespace
19
20 The first option is suited when the farm is managed by a single entity while the second option is suited when each wiki in the farm is managed by a different entity. Obviously computing the upgrade plan for the entire farm takes longer (with the number of wikis) than computing the upgrade plan only for the main wiki.

24 Extensions are now sorted by their name (but still grouped by wiki) and paginated on the Extensions step.
25
26 We also paginated the Wikis step, which could have been pretty long if you had many wikis. See the [[Distribution Wizard documentation>>platform:Features.DistributionWizard]] for more information.

Guillaume Delhumeau 9.1 28 == Experimental Flamingo Skin ==
29
30 * The "page export" action is now handled via a modal popup:(((

38
Marius Dumitru Florea 17.1 39 * We improved the way attachment file names are indexed by Solr so you should be able to find attachments more easily from now on.

45 == Upgrades ==
46
47 The following dependencies have been upgraded:
48
Thomas Mortagne 25.1 49 * [[Logback 1.1.2>>https://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XCOMMONS-563]]
50 * [[Lucene and Solr 4.7.1>>https://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XWIKI-10215]]
51 * [[Jython 2.7-b1>>https://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XWIKI-10221]]
Marius Dumitru Florea 1.1 52
53 == Miscellaneous ==
54
Marius Dumitru Florea 15.1 55 * We added a new field "##filename_exact##" to the [[Solr Schema>>design:Design.SolrSchema]] to store the attachment file names as verbatim (without being analysed) for exact and prefix matching. The existing ##filename## field is analysed and thus cannot be used for exact/prefix matching.
Guillaume Delhumeau 18.1 56 * The Wiki module does not handle the application descriptors of the deprecated [[Application Manager>>extensions:Extension.Application Manager Application]] anymore.

73
74 == General Notes ==
75
76 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.
77
Marius Dumitru Florea 14.1 78 == Solr Search Index ==
Marius Dumitru Florea 1.1 79
Marius Dumitru Florea 14.1 80 {{error}}
Thomas Mortagne 25.1 81 We made changes to the [[Solr schema>>http://design.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/Design/SolrSchema]] in this release (see [[XWIKI-10225>>https://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XWIKI-10225]]) and unfortunately we don't have support for automatic Solr search index migration at this point. If you upgrade from XWiki 4.3 Milestone 2 or greater then **you have to delete the 'solr' folder** from the configured permanent directory of your XWiki instance. The Solr index will be recreated automatically and the entire wiki/farm will be re-indexed after a server restart.
