This is quite a substantial change to the profiler, and includes a number of database changes. These are located in update-mysqldb.sql, and should run without problems. See the update instructions in the download for more details.

The major change for this release is the Campaign functionality. Users can set up campaigns, and characters can be added to those campaigns either by request or invitation. All requests and invitations must be accepted by both the character and the campaign owner (DM) before the character is added.

One of the advantages of the Campaign functionality is that the DM automatically gets edit permissions for all characters, but does not gain the ability to change details such as whether or not the character is public.

Ideally, you should be able to extract a new version of the application into the install directory without then having to re-configure the application for your site.
