Major changes since 2.0 alpha
Version 2.0 is a new baseline release. Much of the code base was rewritten, a new database design adopted, many configuration directives have been added and existing directives changed.
There is now support for secondary indexes in both database backends. There is also initial movement to greater resilience to 4 byte character encodings and index implementations in MySQL implementations.
Guest implementation has been tested. Specifically how the UI presents itself given various default options in the configuration and situations that are confusing or do not allow the guest to easily progress have been addressed.
The about and help text are now pages instead of dialogs in the web UI. There is also a new provision for sites to present custom content for these pages in specific languages where FileSender updates will not override that content.
