IMPORTANT - after installing the component upgrade remember to open the JEvents control panel in the backend to ensure your database indicies are updated appropriately.
Changed from 1.5.0
# Update new migration script so that it doesn't clean out old events
# Extend user authorisation to control users in backend as well as frontend
# Fix parsing of URLs in description
# Improve efficiency of queries - adding in more database indicies and refactoring some queries (more to come)
# Ensure created by is respected during data conversion

* PHP 5 - JEvents 1.5 will not run in PHP4.
You Must follow these instructions to ensure that all the appropriate database tables are created.
- Its a good idea to make
sure that your PHP installation is configured with more than 8MB or memory (check your php ini settings)
- Install the component and all the modules you want to test. Note that currently mod_jevents_legend MUST be installed but it doesn't need to be enabled.
- In the admin interface open up the component "JEvents MVC"
- Click on "Configuration" and save your config values
Upgrading from JEvents alpha 2
You will need to uninstall JEvents alpha 2 before installing beta. Your event data should be retained but you should take a database backup before hand just in case. You will need to run a few extra DB queries, see this forum post viewtopic.php?f=17&t=1199 for more details.
Upgrading from earlier build of JEvents beta or alpha 3
Just install the components and modules on top of the existing installation - note that there is NO need to uninstall before hand.
You must also click on "Configuration" and save your config values
Migration from JEvents1.4.3
JEvents 1.5 beta has been written so that it can be installed alongside JEvents 1.4.3 (this is useful for testing since you could install version 1.5 and compare it with 1.4.3 directly). However you MUST ensure that none of the 1.4.3 modules are visible on the same page as any 1.5.0 modules otherwise you will get a php error.
To migrate your event data click on "Convert Legacy Events" in the JEvents 1.5 component control panel. This will migrate your categories and events without removing the old versions - therefore you can switch between the calenders in the frontend for testing.
