5 This is the release notes for XWiki Platform, XWiki Enterprise and XWiki Enterprise Manager. They share the same release notes as they are released together and have the same version.
6
7 This is mostly a stabilization release leading to 5.0 but we included a few bonus items: Distribution Wizard improvements to support multiwiki use cases and the ability to see which extensions have updates.
8
9 = New and Noteworthy (since XWiki 5.0 M2) =
10
11 [[Full list of issues fixed and Dashboard for 5.0>>http://jira.xwiki.org/secure/Dashboard.jspa?selectPageId=11493]].
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.

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

91 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.
