> Important notes:
> - This is *not* the finished 0.8.0 version, but a beta for testing.
> However, it's feature-completed and should be pretty stable. We will
> release this version (plus some more bug fixes and polish) as 0.8.0 in a
> few days.
> - You need to update oelib first, then seminars.
> - The format of some data has changed. Once you've done the conversion
> using the "UPDATE!" function in the EM, you will not be able to go back
> to 0.7.x.
> - You'll need at least PHP 5.2 and TYPO3 4.2 for running this version.
> If you find any bugs, please report them in the bug tracker at
> <https://bugs.oliverklee.com/>.
> Upgrading from a 0.7.x release to 0.8.x (the full upgrade notes):
> Upgrading to 0.8.x will bring you a lot of new features, but it will
> also mean a bit of work if you are using custom HTML templates.
> You should do the upgrade at a time when there are usually no new
> registrations as there might be some configuration check warnings on the
> front end until you have finished the upgrade.
> 1. Make sure you are using PHP 5.2 or greater.
> 2. Make sure you are using TYPO3 4.2.0 or greater.
> 3. Update to the latest version of oelib.
> 4. If you are using custom HTML templates, make a diff between the
> provided templates and your templates so you know what you have changed.
> (You'll need to create new templates to make use of all new features. In
> addition, your old templates probably will display some garbage on the
> front end.) Switch off your custom templates.
> 5. Upgrade to the new Seminar Manager and upgrade the database.
> 6. In the extension manager, enable the automatic configuration check
> for the Seminar Manager.
> 7. Run the extension's update script in the extension manager.
> (Choose the option "UPDATE!" in the extension's drop-down menu at the
> top. If the option is not displayed than you either have already run the
> update script or it is not necessary to run the update script on your
> installation.)
> 8. Clear all caches.
> 9. Remove the temp cache files in typo3conf (either manualy or via
> extdeveval).
> 10. Remove the FORMidable cache files in typo3temp/ameos_formidable.
> 11. View all pages in the FE that contain anything Seminar
> Manager-related. Sign up for an event and check that everything still is
> working. If you encounter any errors from the automatic configuration
> check, fix the corresponding part of you configuration, clear the FE
> cache and reload the corresponding page.
> 12. Check that the e-mails to the participants and the organizers still
> are working and still look like you want them to look.
> 13. Have a look at the new fields for event records and decide which you
> want to use.
> 14. Move the content from additional times and places to the timeslots
> since this field no longer exists.
> 15. Play around with the configuration values hideColumns, hideFields,
> showRegistrationFields.
> 16. When everything is working, disabled the automatic configuration
> check in the extension manager.
> 17. If you are using custom HTML templates: Make a copy of the provided
> templates, apply your changes from the diff, enable the custom templates
> and test them.
> 18. Now you're finished. Or you could start playing with the new
> features ...
> Best regards,
> Oliver
