Hi everyone,

We fixed an issue with the character encoding used when displaying data from our BOINC project database. This concerns mainly your profiles and team details where, up to now, international (non-ASCII) characters might have been displayed incorrectly. So called BOINC-wide teams were particularly affected by this as they're periodically imported from upstream BOINC.

IOW, BOINC-wide teams should now all be displayed correctly with their original international characters. If you changed your profile details or (non-BOINC-wide) team details to fix those issues yourself after we migrated to Drupal, you might have to fix those now one more final time. Should the editor not pre-load the existing text on edit, just copy and paste it manually.
