5 This is the release notes for [[XWiki Commons>>http://commons.xwiki.org]], [[XWiki Rendering>>http://rendering.xwiki.org]] and [[XWiki Platform>>http://platform.xwiki.org]]. They share the same release notes as they are released together and have the same version.

7 In this version we have added a new tab in the user profile that displays the groups a user is part of. We've added auto-suggest for pages in several places and improved the startup speed on Tomcat. We've also replaced our CAPTCHA implementation with a new one and it's now very easy to change and preview, from Administration, the CAPTCHA type that it will be used in your wiki. The Menu application is now directly accessible through the Administration.

87 = Backward Compatibility and Migration Notes =
88
89 == General Notes ==
90
91 * When upgrading make sure you compare and merge the following XWiki configuration files since some parameters may have been modified, removed or added:
92 ** ##xwiki.cfg##
93 ** ##xwiki.properties##
94 ** ##web.xml##
95 ** ##hibernate.cfg.xml##
96 * Add ##xwiki.store.migration=1## in ##xwiki.cfg## so that XWiki will attempt to automatically migrate your current database to any new schema. Make sure you backup your Database before doing anything.
97
98 == Issues specific to XWiki 10.8 ==
99
100 * 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.(((
101 {{warning}}
102 If you had installed XWiki 10.8RC1, then we changed the new notifications filter table name, which was ##notification_filter_preferences## (in 10.8RC1) to ##notification_filter_prefs##. The previous name was too long for Oracle and was causing a [[bug>>https://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XWIKI-15623]]. Since it was not a final version, we have decided not to handle the migration.
103
104 However, if you really need to upgrade from XWiki 10.8RC1, you need to manually update the database **of each wiki**, and rename the table "##notification_filter_preferences##" to "##notification_filter_prefs##". With MySQL, the command would be:
105
106 {{code language="sql"}}RENAME TABLE notification_filter_preferences TO notification_filter_prefs;{{/code}}
107
108 Upgrades from prior versions are still supported and automated.
109 {{/warning}}
110 )))
111 * **If you are doing un upgrade, don't forget to update the following configuration file: ##hibernate.cfg.xml##**. In particular, the following line must be present:(((
112 {{code language="xml"}}
113 <mapping resource=“notification-filter-preferences.hbm.xml”/>
114 {{/code}}
115 )))
116 * 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):
117 ** Addition of ##metadata-complete="true"## and ##<absolute-ordering />## in XWiki's ##web.xml##
118 ** 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.
119 * Auto redirects are now off by default when moving/renaming pages. Rationale:(((
120 * 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".
121 * 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.
122 * Even for public wikis not all pages need automatic redirects. Technical pages don't need them for example.
123 * We don't have management UIs for redirects FTM and reducing the number of redirects make the wiki easier
124
125 In the future we'll offer a [[config option to define the default behavior>>http://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XWIKI-13384]].
