  1. I’ll also just clarify that there is no upgrade script with this update, just changed files that need to overwrite the current versions.

    Thanks in advance.

  6. At last person – as it quite clearly says at the top of the comments, don’t use this for support, make a support thread.

    Also, if you’re still on 1.4.4, you’ve not been taking very good care of your forum, and you’re lucky you’ve not been hacked.
