12
13 == New wiki mode in distribution wizard ==
14
15 By default you can now get the same distribution wizard you used to have for main wiki only on subwikis too. When enabled it means that each wiki administrator is able to take care of his own wiki upgrade and farm administrator will only deal with main wiki.
16
17 There is two modes:
18
19 * ALL IN ONE: the former Distribution Wizard behavior where everything is done at main wiki level
20 * WIKI: on main wiki only the main wiki is upgraded and each wiki gets its own Distribution Wizard and its own status
21
22 A new step to setup the upgrade mode has been added.

53 #set ($currentDate = $xwiki.jodatime.getDateTime())

55 The number of days passed since the end date is: $duration.standardDays

97 Always make sure you compare your ##xwiki.cfg## and ##xwiki.properties## files with the newest version since some configuration parameters were 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.
