this email is to confirm that the old database management code
"SQLStore2" (which was superseded by "SQLStore3" in SMW 1.8) will be
dropped in future SMW versions. This has been on our public roadmap for
some time -- I am just sending this to make everyone aware of this to
This only affects you if you run a wiki that uses SMW 1.7 or older, or
if you use one of the following lines in its LocalSettings:
$smwgDefaultStore = 'SMWSQLStore2';
SMWSparqlStore::$baseStoreClass = 'SMWSQLStore2';
If this is the case for you, you will need to remove the above lines
when upgrading SMW, run the setup again (like on normal installation),
and refresh the data as explained in the documentation.
Dropping the old code will allow us to implement a number of
improvements in SMW that would not work with the old code. Most notably
the String and Text datatypes will become the same.
