Sorry if beta bugs are to be posted elsewhere, just wanted to let you know. I upgraded to beta which I usually never do because it had such a necessary feature for me - multiblog site! This solves my theming issue more or less.
Just wanted to let you know, when I ran the installer on 5.0.7 (fresh installation, not an operational site yet, just trying to figure out the engine and build a design) and chose "Upgrade my installation" I got a MySQL error:
Произошла неожиданная ошибка! [Unexpected error]

Дополнительная информация о данной ошибке: [Additional Information]
Invalid default value for 'grp_perm_blogs'(Errno=1067)
ALTER TABLE evo_groups
MODIFY grp_perm_blogs enum('user','viewall','editall') COLLATE ascii_bin NOT NULL default 'user',
MODIFY grp_perm_xhtmlvalidation VARCHAR(10) COLLATE ascii_bin NOT NULL default 'always',
MODIFY grp_perm_xhtmlvalidation_xmlrpc VARCHAR(10) COLLATE ascii_bin NOT NULL default 'always',
MODIFY grp_perm_stats enum('none','user','view','edit') COLLATE ascii_bin NOT NULL default 'none'
As far as I understand, the problem was with ascii_bin part. My table was already created in Unicode the first time but after the partial upgrade I noticed some of my tables went cp1251 (which would be wrong for Russian).
I then chose the "upgrade my DB to UTF8" and the process went smoothly, upgrade finished.
But this kind of error (if it was already UTF8 and the upgrader messes it up) could be a problem for many users, so I guess it should be fixed.
There was another encoding related problem, I think it could be connected, so, sorry if it's the wrong idea to put them into the same theme. I didn't make the screenshot and now it's all upgraded but I'll describe it:
My site was in Russian. When first opening the installer/upgrader it attempted to show me its page in Russian except there were all question marks ???????? ????? ????? - like this. In the list of other encodings, all other languages were question marks too except for their code names (en_US) EXCEPT for French i.e. Français (FR) which was showing correctly.
So I chose French. Then Russian again, then the page displayed normally in Cyrillic (Russian).
Also easily fixed but could be confusing for many and I wonder if it wasn't connected with the fact I was already in UTF8 and the installer attempted ASCII although I could be completely off-track here. But still.
