55 == General Notes ==
56
57 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.
58
59 == Issues specific to XWiki 10.8 ==
60
61 * A migration to the new store is necessary for existing filter preferences. It is done automatically when you first start XWiki after upgrading, but it may take time.
62 * XWiki has been configured to increase startup speed by avoiding JAR scanning, especially on Tomcat. The following was done, which you can modify if you need JAR scanning for some reason (not used by XWiki Standard by default):
63 ** Addition of ##metadata-complete="true"## and ##<absolute-ordering />## in XWiki's ##web.xml##
64 ** Addition of a ##META-INF/context.xml## Tomcat-specific deployment file in XWiki's WAR to prevent Tomcat from doing JAR scanning completely and to avoid scanning for JSP and WebSocket.
65 * Auto redirects are now off by default when moving/renaming pages. Rationale:(((
66 * Several users have reported a usability issue about automatic redirects. The way they express it is the following: "I have duplicates pages in my wiki. I don't understand why this is happening. I'm choosing to rename pages and not to copy them but I still get duplicates in the Navigation panel".
67 * Automatic redirects are especially useful for public wikis where users can have bookmark on pages and you don't want to break them. It can also be useful for internal wikis but it's less an issue.
68 * Even for public wikis not all pages need automatic redirects. Technical pages don't need them for example.
69 * We don't have management UIs for redirects FTM and reducing the number of redirects make the wiki easier
70
71 In the future we'll offer a [[config option to define the default behavior>>http://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XWIKI-13384]].
