The most noticable new features/changes since 1.5-beta1 are:

Major changes since 1.5-beta1

  • The ./config directory as distributed now only contains a sample config-dist.php file. All other templates/sample files have been moved to ./config-templates or their contents have been merged into the ./language/* files.
  • The supplied config-dist.php has been cleaned up and contains some important changes. It is recommended to create a fresh config.php from the supplied config-dist.php file and adapt that one with your local settings.
  • Two database column type changes (needs manual adjustment when upgrading).
  • Changed and consolidated language file naming scheme.
  • Added Czech, Slovenian, Italian, Spanish, Croatian and Hungarian language files.
  • Updated Dutch and Norwegian language files.

Major (less visible) changes since 1.5-beta1

  • Further improvements in workflow, validation/error handling and input/output pathways.
  • Minor bug fixes and enhancements.

Many thanks to all contributors to this release for their patches, comments and most notably the translations!

On behalf of the FileSender team,


Thanks Xander!
