3.x Releases
This release rolls up a number of maintenance fixes to the Alfresco Enterprise Edition 3.2 and 3.2r releases.


Please back up your database and content store before attempting to upgrade from a previous release.

For instructions on how to install Alfresco Enterprise 3.2 SP2, refer to the Alfresco Administering a Production Environment guide, available via the Alfresco Network.


This release requires the jTDS driver version 1.2.5 for compatibility with SQL Server, unlike version 3.2 Enterprise, which was certified with the Microsoft driver. We plan to certify future versions with jTDS.

Updated installation instructions are in the sample and on the Wiki

Xalan is now required to be configured as the standard JAXP transformer on Websphere 7. See the following additional installation instruction

Known Issues

The following known issues are associated with this release:

JBPM Deploy Process Servlet Disabled

Deployment of a new workflow via the the JBPM Deploy Process Servlet, as described in, is now only possible if you include this line in


Note that this is not recommended in a production environment as it allows unauthenticated deployment of new workflows.

Email Templates

After upgrading from v3.1.1, please use the 'cut' and 'paste all' actions to move all custom templates from their 'Email Templates' folder to either the 'Invite Email Templates' sub-folder (if they are templates for site invitations) or the 'Notify Email Templates' sub-folder (if they are templates for notifications of new content). The standard product ones will have been moved automatically.

Edit online via CIFS is no longer supported

Due to heightened security in modern browser versions, we have removed cifs as a supported value of the <edit-link-type> element in web-client-config.xml. Allowable values are now http or webdav.
