10 1.1 Summary of changes since XWiki Enterprise 1.7 Milestone 2
11
12 Main changes:
13
14 * *Webdav support*
15 XWiki now expose a webdav server interface. This means you can now access/edit/delete page sources and attachments from any webdav client.
16 * *Groovy upgrade*
17 The groovy engine has been upgraded to the last 1.6 beta version. You can now use all the new features of groovy as well as speed improvements and bugfixes from groovy 1.0 to 1.6 beta 2. See http://groovy.codehaus.org/ for more.
18 * *New script macro*
19 The new script macros add the ability to use any scripting language supporting JSR-223. For now the default XWiki distribution comes with only a groovy 1.6 support but it easy to add support for other language (like ruby, python, etc.) simply by adding the corresponding engine and implementation. See https://scripting.dev.java.net/.

22 {code}
23 {{script language="groovy"}}
24 println "Hello World"

44 1.1 Common Migration notes
45
46 #warning("If you're running in a multiwiki setup you'll also need to define the property <tt>xwiki.store.migration.databases=all</tt> to your <tt>xwiki.cfg</tt> file or explicitly name all databases to be migrated as in <tt>xwiki.store.migration.databases=db1,db2,...</tt>.")
47
48 You may also want to [import the default wiki XAR>Main.Download] in order to benefit from improvements listed above.
49
50 #warning("Always make sure you compare your <tt>xwiki.cfg</tt> file with the newest version since some configuration parameters were added. Of note, you should add <tt>xwiki.store.migration=1</tt> so that XWiki will attempt to automatically migrate your current database to the new schema. Make sure you backup your Database before doing anything.")
