Release Notes for XWiki Enterprise 4.1 Release Candidate 1

Version 12.1 by Caleb James DeLisle on 2012/06/08

This release is not finished yet, this is a work in progress

This is the first and hopefully final release candidate of the 4.1 release cycle (Roadmap). Being a release candidate, this release is sparse on new features, concentrating instead on stabilization of the features brought in Milestone 1 and Milestone 2.

New and Noteworthy (since XWiki Enterprise 4.1 Milestone 2)

Extension Manager improvements

The merge conflict resolution UI is now displaying all document changes as if you are comparing two versions from a document's history.

For developers

Diff module

A new diff/merge module has been added to make easier to deal with diff and merge both from component and scripts. See Diff module  for details.

General Upgrade Notes

If you're running in a multiwiki setup you'll also need to define the property xwiki.store.migration.databases in your xwiki.cfg file if you want to explicitly name some databases to be migrated as the default is now to migrate all databases. Database that are not migrated could not be accessed.

You may also want to import the default wiki XAR in order to benefit from all the improvements listed above.

Always make sure you compare your xwiki.cfg and xwiki.properties files with the newest version since some configuration parameters were 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.
