Installation & Upgrade Instructions

New Installs

See Installation#New Installs.


See Installation#Upgrades. This is a minor release and there are no changes to CSS, the database schema, or configuration when upgrading from JAMWiki 1.1. When upgrading site administrators should be aware of the following issues that are specific to this release:

  • The Lucene search engine has been updated in this release, but the search index format has not changed and this update should be transparent for all users.
  • The /WEB-INF/applicationContext-security.xml file has been modified to add a logout success handler. If you have customized this file be sure to add the jamwikiLogoutSuccessHandler to your custom version.

See the release notes for JAMWiki 1.1 if upgrading from a version prior to JAMWiki 1.1.


New Features

  • None.


  • Merge all fixes from JAMWiki 1.0.7.
  • Heading text and wiki link text that starts with a list tag (example: "#if" or "[[Link|#text]]") was improperly being parsed as a list item.
  • Spring security 3.0 changed how logout redirection is handled. Update JAMWiki to redirect logout properly. Note that this change modifies the applicationContext-security.xml file. Reported by Leonardo Silva Kury Aragão Mendes.
  • Remove the "plainlinks" pattern from the spam blacklist since that CSS class is commonly used on Mediawiki sites.
  • Fix parsing of generated template names of the form "{{Name{{if:|1|2}}}}".
  • Upgrade to Lucene Search 3.4, which fixes a bug where operating system or hardware crash, or power loss, could easily corrupt the index.
  • Fix an issue where the cache isn't cleared when a topic version is purged.
  • System topics such as the LeftMenu and BottomArea should not display section "edit" links or a table of contents. Reported by Robert Hulme.

Translation Updates

  • None.
