singapore - Release notes

New in this release is the long-awaited MySQL backend and thrown in for free is a SQLite backend and the possibility to make a backend of any flavour of SQL with just a few lines of code. There are also several security fixes that prevent authorised singapore users (i.e. those with a username a password) from wreaking various forms of havoc on your site. If you trust everyone who has a password to your singapore installation then you're OK. Otherwise please upgrade asap.

NOTE: Both SQL backends are currently only able to collect viewing data for galleries and images that already have a record in the database. This will be addressed in a future release. Also there is currently no upgrade or migrate facility between database formats.
