See [XWIKI-2009>https://jira.xwiki.org/browse/XWIKI-2009].")

56 1.1 Migrating from 1.1.2 or later
57
58 The database structure has been changed but we have set up an automatic migration system so you shouldn't have to touch your Database to upgrade to 1.2. Thus you can simply install this version and configure it to point to your existing database. However you may want to [import the default wiki XAR>Main.Download] in order to benefit from improvements listed above.
