Wacintaki 1.5.6 released

At long last, 1.5.6 is finally here.

1.5.6 is a huge technical update, which includes a rewrite of the language system, as well as new Spanish and German language packs.

The update is a bit more complicated this time, though I've put a lot of effort into making sure the update process is smooth.  If people have posted comments on your oekaki in languages other than English, or that use international character sets, the board will need to be updated to UTF-8.  This conversion process adds a few steps to the update, and may take a minute or two.

NOTE: If you are using the Traditional Chinese language pack and you logged out of the board before applying the patch, the board will not redirect you to the updater.  You will have to type "update.php" into your web browser address bar to start the update.

1.5.6 Full install

Patch for 1.1.0 or newer
Patch for 1.3.14 or newer
Patch for 1.5.0 or newer

If you have a problem with the updater, don't panic and try to re-install the board.  Post a thread here on the forum for help.  Your oekaki will be disabled while it is in maintenance mode and cannot be damaged by members trying to post pictures, comments, etc.
