76
77 == General Notes ==
78
79 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.
80
81 == Issues specific to XWiki 10.8 RC 1 ==
82
83 * 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.
84 * 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):
85 ** Addition of ##metadata-complete="true"## and ##<absolute-ordering />## in XWiki's ##web.xml##
86 ** 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.
