<h2>Version 2.0.3</h2>
<p>Release Date: August 20, 2011</p>

<li>An improvement was made to the MySQL and MySQLi drivers to prevent exposing a potential vector for SQL injection on sites using multi-byte character sets in the database client connection. <p>An incompatibility in PHP versions &lt; 5.2.3 and MySQL &lt; 5.0.7 with <em>mysql_set_charset()</em> creates a situation where using multi-byte character sets on these environments may potentially expose a SQL injection attack vector. Latin-1, UTF-8, and other "low ASCII" character sets are unaffected on all environments.</p> <p class="critical">If you are running or considering running a multi-byte character set for your database connection, please pay close attention to the server environment you are deploying on to ensure you are not vulnerable.</p></li>

<li>Added port support to MySQL, MySQLi, and MS SQL database drivers.</li>
<li>Added driver name variable in each DB driver, based on bug report #4436.</li>
<li>Added several new "setting" functions to the <a href="helpers/form_helper.html">Form helper</a> that allow POST data to be retrieved and set into forms. These are intended to be used on their own, or with the new <a href="libraries/form_validation.html">Form Validation Class</a>.</li>

<li>Modified url_title() in the <a href="helpers/url_helper.html">URL helper</a> to remove characters and digits that are part of
character entities, to allow dashes, underscores, and periods regardless of the $separator, and to allow uppercase characters.</li>

<li>Added several new functions in the <a href="./libraries/uri.html">URI Class</a> to let you retrieve and manipulate URI segments that have been re-routed using the <a href="routing.html">URI Routing</a> feature. Previously, the URI class did not permit you to access any re-routed URI segments, but now it does.</li>
<li>Added <a href="./libraries/output.html">$this->output->set_header()</a> function, which allows you to set server headers.</li>
<li>Updated plugins, helpers, and language classes to allow your <dfn>application</dfn> folder to contain its own plugins, helpers, and language folders.

<li>Added some code to allow email attachments to be reset when sending batches of email.</li>
<li>Deprecated the <dfn>application/scripts</dfn> folder. It will continue to work for legacy users, but it is recommended that you create your own
<a href="./general/libraries.html">libraries</a> or <a href="./general/models.html">models</a> instead. It was originally added before CI had user libraries or models, but it's not needed anymore.</li>
<li>Deprecated the <dfn>$autoload['core']</dfn> item from the <kbd>autoload.php</kbd> file. Instead, please now use: <kbd>$autoload['libraries']</kbd></li>
<li>Deprecated the following database functions: $this->db->smart_escape_str() and $this->db->fields().</li>
