66 == General Notes ==
67
68 * When upgrading make sure you compare and merge the following XWiki configuration files since some parameters may have been modified, removed or added:
69 ** ##xwiki.cfg##
70 ** ##xwiki.properties##
71 ** ##web.xml##
72 ** ##hibernate.cfg.xml##
73 * Add ##xwiki.store.migration=1## in ##xwiki.cfg## so that XWiki will attempt to automatically migrate your current database to any new schema. Make sure you backup your Database before doing anything.

75 == Issues specific to XWiki 12.8 ==
76
77 === New escaping in various displayers ===
78
79 The XClass property view displayers are supposed to produce HTML but some of them were not fully escaping the content which led to invalid HTML in resulting pages and bad display of their content depending on the context (up to totally broken page display in some cases).
80
81 The impacted types of properties are:
82
83 * String
84 * TextArea in puretext mode
85 * Static List
86 * Database List
87
88 This is now fixed but it's possible that some custom code was actually counting on the old behavior.
89
90 For example, something might have used it to insert and render HTML through String properties (which are supposed to contain plain text only). A more standard and safe way of providing formatable content in a propery is generally to accept wiki content (which among many things allows to insert HTML) in a TextArea property. It also provides a WYSIWYG to insert content which makes is more usable for simple users. If you absolutely need your String property to be displayed as HTML content, the best is to provide your own "Custom Display", where you configure the property display with the following code:
91
92 {{code language="none"}}
93 {{velocity}}
94 {{html clean="false"}}
95 #if ($type == 'edit')
96 $doc.displayEdit($field, $prefix, $object)
97 #elseif ($type == 'hidden')
98 $doc.displayHidden($field, $prefix, $object)
99 #else
100 $value
101 #end
