Last modified by Ilie Andriuta on 2019/04/22

This is the release notes for XWiki Commons, XWiki Rendering and XWiki Platform. They share the same release notes as they are released together and have the same version.

This is a bugfix release that covers important issues that we have discovered since 10.11.5 has been released.

Some important bugs have been discovered since XWiki 10.11.6 has been released:

If one or several of these bugs impact you, then you should wait for the next version of XWiki (10.11.7) that will be released soon!
Note that we still recommend upgrading to this new version if you have 10.11.5 installed as we have been fixing several major issues since then.

Backward Compatibility and Migration Notes

General Notes

  • When upgrading make sure you compare and merge the following XWiki configuration files since some parameters may have been modified, removed or added:
    • xwiki.cfg
    • xwiki.properties
    • web.xml
    • hibernate.cfg.xml
  • 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.
