74 = Backward Compatibility and Migration Notes =
75
76 == General Notes ==
77
78 * When upgrading make sure you compare and merge the following XWiki configuration files since some parameters may have been modified, removed or added:
79 ** ##xwiki.cfg##
80 ** ##xwiki.properties##
81 ** ##web.xml##
82 ** ##hibernate.cfg.xml##
83 * 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.
84
85 == Issues specific to XWiki 11.5 ==
86
87 === Renaming of WikiMacro field ===
88
89 The field {{code}}Macro content type{{/code}} has been renamed {{code}}Macro content availability{{/code}} in WikiMacroClass UI.
90
91 === XWiki now requires JDBC 4.2 ===
92
93 In practice it just means you need to make sure the database connector you are using is not too old (JDBC 4.2 came with Java 8 so you should be fine if you downloaded the connector in recent years).
94
95 === Hibernate 5.4.3 upgrade ===
96
97 Hibernate has (finally) been upgraded to the very last version. While it means you will benefit from bugfix/improvement/new features it's also a huge jump (previous version was close to 10 years old) and you will probably have issues if you are directly manipulating Hibernate APIs or some library expecting a much older version of Hibernate. You can find the details on https://github.com/hibernate/hibernate-orm/wiki/Migration-Guides but here is an extract from XWiki point of view:
98
99 * HQL '##?##'-based wildcards are not supported anymore at all by Hibernate. We added an automatic converter (to '##?1##' JPQL style) which seems to work well but it might not be perfect and it's producing a deprecating warning log
100 * You might need to update your ##hibernate.cfg.xml## file
101 * Various Hibernate classes have been removed or moved to different Java packages
102 * Various Hibernate methods have been removed from the APIs or not having any effect anymore even if still here and deprecated
103
104 === HTML head extension point identifier update ===
105
106 The identifier of [[the HTML header extension point>>Documentation.DevGuide.ExtensionPoint.HTMLHead]] allowing to inject HTML in the pages ##head## tag has been changed from ##org.xwiki.platform.head## to ##org.xwiki.platform.html.head##. Update your UI Extension Points if you were using the old id. This was done to disambiguate between HTML head and page head.
107
108 == API Breakages ==
109
110 The following APIs were modified since XWiki 11.4:
