WARNING: Following changes may create regression for some external modules, but were necessary to make
Dolibarr better:
- Removed hook supplierorderdao into supplier order creation. This is a business event, so we must use the trigger ORDER_SUPPLIER_CREATE instead.
- Hooks 'printLeftBlock' and 'formConfirm' are now compliant with hook development rules. They are "addreplace" hooks, so you must return content with "->resprints='mycontent'" and not with "return 'mycontent'"  
- All fields "fk_societe" and "fk_soc" are now named "fk_soc" (same name for all fields).
- Method select_PriceBaseType and load_PriceBaseType were merged into selectPriceBaseType.
- The triggers USER_LOGIN* are deprecated. They are still working but you should prefer use the hook afterLogin or afterLoginFailed instead.
- The trigger USER_CREATE_FROM_CONTACT has been replace with USER_CREATE and property context is now filled to make difference between creation from contact or not.
- Function get_exdir require now 6 parameters. This is to prepare a future feature.
