Tony, should we compile a Release Letter to explain one or the other changelog entry? Of course, not each of them.

To be honest, I usually leave this till the release. I have been so busy as of late that I didn't even think of it for the beta.

Sure. If you want me to, I will compile some few sentences that I want to see there; e.g. those that require user interaction

Whats the difference between the Windows and the Unix archive?
File sizes differ, but the content in most of the files seems the same(exept invisible characters).

Yes, the files are converted from unix format to dos format.

That and the "INSTALL" text file is different.

It seems that a little mistake in upgrade script. I've got an error while upgrading:

I think, this alter table have to be on data_input_fileds table.
