Alfresco Community 4.0.c release has several bug fixes over the Community 4.0.b release. See https://issues.alfresco.com/jira/secure/IssueNavigator.jspa?reset=true&jqlQuery=project+%3D+ALF+AND+issuetype+%3D+Bug+AND+resolution+%3D+Fixed+AND+resolved+%3E%3D+2011-11-07+AND+resolved+%3C%3D+2011-12-22+ORDER+BY+priority+DESC for list of the issues fixed since 4.0b

Being the third community release for 4.0, this has undergone some limited testing and care should taken before upgrading any previous Alfresco Community version with this version.

jBPM engine has been turned off and jBPM workflows have been hidden by default. Please refer to admin guide or 4.0 release page to turn on jBPM engine and jBPM workflows.


Schema Changes


  • Table 'alf_acl_change_set': Transaction tracking added. 'version' column renamed to 'commit_time_ms'.
  • Table 'alf_node': Locale in which node was last edited is recorded. 'locale_id' column added and foreign key referencing 'alf_locale.id'.
  • Table 'alf_node_assoc': Peer associations are orderable. Added column 'assoc_index'.

Known Issues


  • Updates to categories via the Category Manager in the Admin Console may not appear immediately if Solr is the used as the search engine.
  • Activiti does not have the concept of start tasks, as a result when starting a workflow the initial start task is not shown in the 'My Completed Tasks' dashlet in the Explorer client, all other tasks in the workflow will be present.
  • The TAG field does not support wildcard, prefix, fuzzy queries etc. Wildcard searches matching tags will not return any matching results.

Please refer to Alfresco Jira system for other known issues. https://issues.alfresco.com/jira/secure/IssueNavigator.jspa?reset=true&jqlQuery=project+%3D+ALF+AND+issuetype+%3D+Bug+AND+resolution+%3D+Unresolved+AND+fixVersion+%3D+10653+ORDER+BY+priority+DESC
