Thomas Mortagne 38.1 6 We have found an important regression in this release: the //Add > Page// and //Add > Page from Office// menu entries are not visible in some cases for simple users (with no administration rights). See [[XWIKI-9183>>https://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XWIKI-9183]] for more details. The problem is going to be fixed in 5.1 Milestone 2. We are very sorry for the inconvenience.

Marius Dumitru Florea 18.1 17 == Solr search UI overhaul ==
Sergiu Dumitriu 1.1 18
Marius Dumitru Florea 23.1 19 We have redesigned the Solr search page to include faceted search and we improved the display of the advanced search options and the search results. Solr search is still not enabled by default because you still have to manually trigger the index from the administration, but we're working on this and we are confident that 5.1 final will have automatic Solr indexing and Solr enabled by default. See the documentation for the [[Solr Search Application>>doc:extensions:Extension.Solr Search Application]] for more details.

57 * You can now provide a version summary (comment) when updating a page using REST. You can retrieve the version summary either by getting the page or by getting the page history, in which case you get the summary for each page revision.

81 You may also want to [[import the default wiki XAR>>Main.Download]] in order to benefit from all the improvements listed above.
82
83 {{warning}}
84 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.

Marius Dumitru Florea 2.1 87 == Issues specific to XWiki 5.1 Milestone 1 ==
Sergiu Dumitriu 1.1 88
Marius Dumitru Florea 2.1 89 * The data type of the 'email' property from the user profile has changed from ##String## to ##Email##, a specialized type [[introduced in 4.2>>ReleaseNotes.ReleaseNotesXWiki42||anchor="HNewfieldtypesforemailandlistofpages"]]. Unfortunately this change doesn't apply automatically when you upgrade from an older version so you have to do it your self:(((
90 1. edit ##XWiki.XWikiUsers## with the class editor
91 1. delete the 'email' property
92 1. add a new property of type ##Email## named 'email' with 'e-Mail' as pretty name
93 1. save
94 )))The values of both ##String## and ##Email## data types are stored in the same database table so there souldn't be any migration issues for existing users.
