Umlauts do not work after Version 12.x

Scre4py's profile image Scre4py posted 3 weeks ago in General Permalink

Hello,

existing and new table entries with 'umlauts' work fine with version 11.3.0.6449 After upgrading to 12.x and also the newest 12.2.0.6576 existing entries looks like they have a wrong encoding and it is not possible to save entries with umlauts.

The existing table has as collation 'latin1_swedish_ci' and I also tested a new table with 'utf8'.

I think this is related to issue #287, solved in v12.1

Either you are using a very old MySQL server (< 5.5), or the library used for your session is libmysql. I would recommend to switch to libmariadb, in the session manager's settings tab.

Hello Ansgar,

thank you for your quick reply! Of course, I had not tested the obvious. -.-

In case of using the libmariadb (I think this was switched egarding to the update from 11.x) with the old sweetie MySQL 5.0.77 leads to this issue.

Using the libmysql-6.1 or libmysql is okay, both works.

Thank you for this great and lightweight Software! :)
