Re: [Evolution] Switching from 1.0.x -> 1.1.1 snapshots

When running Evolution 1.1.1 for the first time, it is supposed to run a
upgrade "script" (it's actually written in c so technically not a
script, but hey - I don't know perl! besides, if it was written in perl
it'd need a lot of gnome perl bindings installed).

Once Evolution 1.1.1 has run that upgrade program, it sets a flag in the
config.xmldb file and so in the future it won't bother upgrading filters
or anything else if it sees that flag. However, you can try running
evolution with the --force-upgrade switch (or some such - it should be
in the release notes somewhere) which will force the upgrade script to
run again.

Now that I've given an intro...

to my new one, but evo seems not to recognize them.

Let me get this straight so that I can be sure... when you say you
backed up your ~/evolution, did you copy or move it to a new location?
Hopefully you just copied it, or else well...there's no way the upgrade
script could have upgraded it properly.

Assuming that you *did* just copy it to a backup location, what filters
are not recognised?

Is there an easy way to migrate my filters, or am I stuck re-entering
them all?

It should Just Work (tm).
