Well since PHP 5.50 will depricate mysql support in lieu of mysqli I have been working on adding mysqli support.

Given most hosting environments are not going to make drastic switches most people will not have to worry about this but I have finished and have two test sites of mine running mysqli support in PhotoPost Pro.

I will also be adding the ability to set charset in the config for mysql so as we use utf8 natively because it works with most any language some cases users who integrate with the various forums we support use a different collation. Therefore I will be adding a select on config to set your charset for mysql to match the forum.

utf8 UTF-8 Unicode
latin1 English/cp1252 West European
latin2 ISO 8859-2 Central European
latin5 ISO 8859-9 Turkish
latin7 ISO 8859-13 Baltic
cp1250 Windows Central European
cp1251 Windows Cyrillic
cp1256 Windows Arabic
cp1257 Windows Baltic
big5 Big5 Traditional Chinese
greek ISO 8859-7 Greek
ujis EUC-JP Japanese
sjis Shift-JIS Japanese
hebrew ISO 8859-8 Hebrew
tis620 TIS620 Thai
euckr EUC-KR Korean

Have the upgrade script converted added in the ability togo right to the upgrade you need to start with automatically might do some other friendly things but once I finish things up I will release an 8.31 release.
