Upgrading a non UTF-8 site:
UTF-8 encoding has been introduced into XOOPS 2.3 as default charset. However, there might be some problems with converting existing websites from non UTF-8 charset to UTF-8.
Before there is a good enough solution for this conversion, following settings are recommended when you upgrade an existing website (if you are not an experienced user):
- Select "Do not change" option in "Database character set and collation" step during upgrade process
- Modify /languages/yourlanguage/global.php to use your previous _CHARSET value, if it has been changed to UTF-8 in your new global.php file as
define('_CHARSET''UTF-8');


Upgrading XOOPS Editors:
In the XOOPS package, there are four Editors included: dhtmltextarea and textarea for plain text, CKeditor and TinyMCE for WYSIWYG HTML.
There are six additional WYSIWYG Editors available: FCKeditor, Koivi, NiceEdit, Wymeditor, Xinha, and Spaw2 that you can download from XOOPS SourceForge (https://sourceforge.net/projects/xoops/files/XOOPS%20Editors/)
Since there are some directory structure changes in both fckeditor and tinymce editors, you are recommended to remove existent editors before uploading the new additors.
And if you are using FCKeditor for modules, please modify module specific configs following the files in /fckeditor/modules/, especially if you use "Article" module.


Debug information display level
-----------------------------------

Since XOOPS 2.3.1 debug information display level is enabled as a temporary solution for 2.3* to show debug information to different level of users: to all users, to members or to admins only.
The configuration can be set in /xoops_data/configs/xoopsconfig.php
A new debug information tools will be available for 2.4 using FireBug (see http://tinyurl.com/nmnjdp)



Files integrity check
-----------------------------------

The full XOOPS package is released with a script able to check if all the system files have been correctly uploaded to the server. To use it, follow these instructions:

1. Upload the checksum.php and checksum.md5 files located in the XOOPS package root to your XOOPS server folder (putting them next to mainfile.php).
2. Execute checksum.php with your browser
3. If necessary, re-upload the missing or corrupted system files
4. Remove checksum.php and checksum.md5 from your server


Modules
-----------------------------------

This release contains only the "system-related modules". You are invited to browse the XOOPS modules repository to if you need additional functionality. Note: as a new repository is being built, the current repository is not up-to-date, PLEASE VISIT INDIVIDUAL DEVELOPERS' WEBSITES TO MAKE SURE YOU ARE USING LATEST VERSION OF MODULES.

Just want to remind that "problems with forms in news" is not core bug but module bug. However I have made a work around on core and added a warning message so developers can pay attention.

There are no change on language files.

Rememer to check object.php in the kernel class (Also applies to the class model) for the new variable types

for example when declaring a variable in a class you can now do things like:

/* This is declaring a any utf-8, utf-6, utf-32 etc any iso character field

    ie. This will allow any form of text area in any character of any language or mixed languages any supported ISO

*/
$this->initVar("description"XOBJ_DTYPE_UNICODE_TXTAREA'GMT +00:00 (GMT)'true255);

/* This is declaring a any utf-8, utf-6, utf-32 etc any iso character field

    ie. This will allow any form of username in any character of any language
*/
$this->initVar("username"XOBJ_DTYPE_UNICODE_TXTBOXfalsetrue128);

// This is declaring a database floating point
$this->initVar("weight"XOBJ_DTYPE_FLOAT0true);

// This is declaring a database decimal (double) 
$this->initVar("price"XOBJ_DTYPE_DECIMAL0true);

// This is declaring a database enumerator
$this->initVar("status"XOBJ_DTYPE_ENUM'ENABLE'truefalsefalse, array('ENABLE','SUSPENDED'));

I would like to upgrade form 2.3.1 to 2.4.1, but didn't see such an option in the release note. Can someone please advise if I can just use the 2.3.3b -> 2.4.1 upgrade package, or I need to do it in two steps:
A. 2.3.1 -> 2.3.3b
B. 2.3.3b -> 2.4.1
or is there any other better way to upgrade it.

As I hacked many modules, getting the right upgrade package will be very helpful.

Thank you very much.
