Requirements for upgrade from 2.7.0,1 to 2.8.0_1,1

Hi All,

The FreeBSD ports tree was updated with amavisd-new v2.8.0 a few months ago and I vaguely remember reading in /usr/ports/UPDATING that there where some SQL DB Schema alterations I needed to make. At the time I was mid way though migrating some domains over to the servers and wanted to avoid introducing any potential problems.

I've now completed the migration of all the domains and things have settled down so I've taken a second look at upgrading from 2.7.0 to 2.8.0 but I can't find any references to DB Schema updates in /usr/ports/UPDATING or in the release notes ( Was I just imagining things or are there some DB Schema updates required, or for that matter any other hoops I need to jump though to successfully upgrade to 2.8.0?

Many thanks
