7 This is the first and hopefully final release candidate of the 4.1 release cycle ([[Roadmap>>Main.Roadmap]]). Being a release candidate, this release is sparse on new features, concentrating instead on stabilization of the features brought in [[Milestone 1>>ReleaseNotesXWikiEnterprise41M1]] and [[Milestone 2>>ReleaseNotesXWikiEnterprise41M2]].
8
9 = New and Noteworthy (since XWiki Enterprise 4.1 Milestone 2) =
10
11 == Extension Manager improvements ==
12
13 The merge conflict resolution UI is now displaying all document changes as if you are comparing two versions from a document's history.

16
17 == For developers ==
18
19 === Diff module ===
20
21 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 >>extensions:Extension.Diff Module]] for details.
22
23 = Bug fixes and improvements =
24
25 * The activity macro no longer allows sending messages. That functionality has been extracted into a reusable macro called messageSender. See {{jira style="enum" notes="false" url="http://jira.xwiki.org"}}XWIKI-7679{{/jira}} and {{jira style="enum" notes="false" url="http://jira.xwiki.org"}}XWIKI-7875{{/jira}} for more details.
26 * The Windows Installer should now work fine on Windows 7. The issue is that on Windows 7 the "Program Files" directory is now read only and since XWiki wanted to write in it it was causing startup issues. We've temporarily solved this in 4.1 by installing XWiki at the root of the ##C:## drive for all Windows versions. This will be [[properly fixed in XWiki 4.2M1>>http://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XE-1051]].

62 {{info}}
63 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.
64 {{/info}}
65
66 You may also want to [[import the default wiki XAR>>Main.Download]] in order to benefit from all the improvements listed above.
67
68 {{warning}}
69 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.
