[geeklog-devel] Geeklog 1.9.0 update

I have a feeling that the 1.9.0 release will cause a lot of breakage, especially with plugins. I've been running into all sorts of small issues all morning …
For example, the Forum plugin fails to install due to the use of the 'tid' field when adding a block. The MySQLi class is more picky about things than the old MySQL class, which also seems to affect some plugins (including the Polls plugin, which did call mysql_real_escape_string() directly in the plugin upgrade code somewhere).
So we really need to get the plugin authors on board for this one.
We also need to make it really clear this time that there may be issues when trying out early versions - including the risk of the site no longer working due to plugin incompatibilities.
Any thoughts on how to best approach this?
