5 This is the release notes for [[XWiki Commons>>http://commons.xwiki.org]], [[XWiki Rendering>>http://rendering.xwiki.org]], [[XWiki Platform>>http://platform.xwiki.org]]. They share the same release notes as they are released together and have the same version.

7 Lots of usability improvements: improved Livetable filtering (Date filters, Multilist filters, DBList filters), Page Templates can now be auto-selected based on the current location, simplified way of adding a logo to a Color Theme and a lot more. In addition, the new Notifications feature has been worked on too: grouping of related notifications, ability to send emails, configuration of locations and sending diffs in emails. Last but not least: XWiki Enterprise is dead! We now have a new XWiki distribution that asks you at startup what Flavor you'd like to use for your wiki, and we're providing a default Flavor called the Standard Flavor (the closest to the previous XWiki Enterprise distribution). In the future there should be more Flavors offered.

10 After this version was released, we noticed a blocker bug: if you use one distribution that doesn't bundle the Standard Flavor, when you execute XWiki the first time, the Distribution Wizard step that lets you choose the Flavor to use comes up empty, instead of proposing the Standard Flavor. We're working on fixing this and we'll release an [[XWiki 9.5.1>>ReleaseNotes.Data.XWiki.9\.5\.1]] version very quickly. Sorry about that.

71 When upgrading make sure you compare your ##xwiki.cfg##, ##xwiki.properties## and ##web.xml## files with the newest version since some configuration parameters may have been modified or 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.
