Known issues with LifeType 1.2

If you have been planning to upgrade to 1.2 (as advised), you might want to hold it for a few days until we fix some of the most outstanding issues detected so far in LifeType 1.2.

< !-- ADS -->

The two major areas affected by the issues detected in LifeType 1.2 concern file uploads and user-data providers.

Regarding file uploads and resources, there were some issues detected after the final release related to Windows servers and file names with double-byte encodings. If you are planning to run LifeType 1.2 on a Windows server and at the same time you are using a double-byte language (such as Traditional and Simplified Chinese), please wait for LifeType 1.2.1. Users of other languages or operating systems (files with Chinese names work just fine in Linux servers, for example) are not affected by this issue.

This issue has already been resolved and it will be included in the next maintenance release.

Another major issue and without a fix available so far concerns user data providers. Due to insufficient testing during the development process, there are some incompatibility problems with the new permissions framework and user data providers. In addition to that, the installer in LifeType 1.2 is unable to correctly upgrade a 1.1.x installation where a user data provider is in use. If your service depends on this kind of integration, please do not attempt to upgrade.

We would like to apologize for the inconveniences this may have caused, and rest assured that we are working as hard as we can on providing a fix for these issues. In the meantime, there are development snapshots of LifeType 1.2.1 generated every night and available here:

    Have you an idea of when 1.2.1 version will be released ?
    I'm waiting it before upgrade because the 1.2.0 have some problem that have been already resolved on the nightly build...
