123 123  When upgrading make sure you compare your ##xwiki.cfg##, and ##web.xml## files with the newest version since some configuration parameters may have been modified or added. Note that you should add so that XWiki will attempt to automatically migrate your current database to the new schema. Make sure you backup your Database before doing anything.

127 +* Since we've modified content of the Quick Links Panel, the Distribution Wizard may detect a merge conflict if this panel was customized. In addition, the Quick Links panel may disappear after an upgrade to 8.1M1+. You can add it back from the administration UI if you want to keep it (e.g. if it has been customized).
128 +* The WebJars URL format has been modified to support relative WebJars URL in subwikis. The new format is {{code language="none"}}/webjars/<namespace>/<path/to/resource>?...{{/code}}. Reminder: you should not use this format directly and instead you should use the Script Service to generate a valid WebJars URL; this isolate you from any URL change. Example from Velocity: {{code language="none"}}$services.webjars.url(...){{/code}}.
129 +* The ##xwiki.usedefaultweb## parameter has been removed from ##xwii.cfg##. This parameter had not been working since XWiki 7.2-milestone-1; when we introduced Nested Pages we had to make a choice and we decided to support addressing top-level Nested Pages without having to have ##WebHome## in the URL (nor having to finish URLs with a trailing ##/##). For example, ##http:~/~/<server>/xwiki/bin/view/something## points to ##something.WebHome## by default since XWiki 7.2-milestone-1.
