Release Notes for XWiki Enterprise 2.1 Milestone 1

First and last milestone of the XWiki Enterprise 2.1 version (Roadmap). 

This release is mostly a bugfix and stabilization release with one important new feature: re-design of the Action menus (see below).

New and Noteworthy (since XWiki Enterprise 2.0.3)

  • Re-design of the actions menus:
    • Split the top menu into 2: one for wiki and space level actions and one for page level actions

    • Reorganized the page level actions (there's now a "More Actions" menu) and the action to watch the current page is moved on the right.

    • Added back the ability to view the source of a page
    • Note that the new top level menu (Wiki and Space actions) is a good entry point in the future for providing navigation between wikis in a wiki farm.

Backward Compatibility and Migration Notes

General Notes

If you're running in a multiwiki setup you'll also need to define the property xwiki.store.migration.databases=all to your xwiki.cfg file or explicitly name all databases to be migrated as in <tt>xwiki.store.migration.databases=db1,db2,....

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

Always make sure you compare your xwiki.cfg file with the newest version since some configuration parameters were added. Of note, 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.
