This is the third release candidate for Mantis 1.1.0, we believe we are now very close to the final release. This release has several fixes relating to SOAP API, DB2, and others. All users running 1.1.0x releases are encouraged to update to this release. This release can be downloaded from here.
For Mantis instances that use non-latin characterset, there is no automated upgrade path for data already in the database. Hence, this wiki page guides you through the upgrade process. Please backup before you attempt to upgrade. It is also recommended to test the upgrade process on a backup instance rather than the live one.
