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 This release introduces the new Live Data macro and starts using it in the Administration Logging section. Additionally, administration sections now get proper rights handling by inheriting from each of their authors. Under the hood, struts had finally been replaced by XWiki components, the "viewrev" action has been deprecated and changes have been made to the rights that a script has when executing.

76 = Backward Compatibility and Migration Notes =
77
78 == General Notes ==
79
80 * When upgrading make sure you compare and merge the following XWiki configuration files since some parameters may have been modified, removed or added:
81 ** ##xwiki.cfg##
82 ** ##xwiki.properties##
83 ** ##web.xml##
84 ** ##hibernate.cfg.xml##
85 * 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.
86
87 == Issues specific to XWiki 13.0 ==
88
89 === No more Struts ===
90
91 XWiki used to use the highly outdated Struts 1.3.10 as entry point to the (deprecated) actions system. In pratice Struts was not used for much (basically just mapping an action name with an action class) already and the very last bit has finally been removed but it's a breaking change for any custom action:
92
93 * actions are now XWiki components implementing the role ##com.xpn.xwiki.internal.web.LegacyAction##
94 * no more struts-config.xml, the component now indicate its own name to match in the URL and the only way to disable an action is to remove/uninstall it
95
96 That being said the old XWiki actions system has been deprecated for a long time now and the recommended way to make a custom action up to date is to convert it to an [[Entity Resource Reference handler>>extensions:Extension.Resource API||anchor="HAddinganewEntityResourceTypeHandler"]].
97
98 === FileUploadPlugin#getFileItems order changed ===
99
100 Another side effect of the removing of Struts 1.3 is that the order of the elements returned by ##FileUploadPlugin#getFileItems(XWikiContext)## which used to always be ordered (even if not documented as such) now depends on the multipart/form Servlet implementation (for example Tomcat used Apache FileUpload to parse the request which respect the order but Jetty does not). In any case it's recommended to use directly the HTTPServlet#getParts which is a standard instead of the old FileUploadPlugin.
101
102 === The viewrev action is deprecated ===
103
104 The [[viewrev action>>Documentation.DevGuide.Architecture.URL Architecture.Standard URL Format||anchor="HAction:viewrev"]] is now deprecated and the [[view action>>Documentation.DevGuide.Architecture.URL Architecture.Standard URL Format||anchor="HAction:view"]] should be used instead with the same parameters.
105
106 === Author right is now important when saving ===
107
108 An experimental new behavior of the document save script API is now the default: both the current user and author rights are checked when saving a document. Among other things it implies the follow two important changes for scripts authors who don't have programming right:
109
110 * the registered author of a document saved by the script will be the author instead of the current user
111 * if the script author does not have edit right on some document the API ##Document#save## call will fail for that document
112
113 While not recommended it's possible to go back to previous behavior by using ##security.script.save.checkAuthor=false## in ##xwiki.properties## configuration file.
114
115 == API Breakages ==
116
117 The following APIs were modified since XWiki 12.10.3:
