NEW: Upgrade jquery to 3.3.1 and jquery-ui to 1.12 WARNING: Following changes may create regression for some external modules, but were necessary to make Dolibarr better: * The hook getNodeList has been replaced by a normalized 'addreplace' hook getDirList. * The trigger USER_SETINGROUP and USER_REMOVEFROMGROUP has been replaced with trigger USER_MODIFY. * The page societe/soc.php was renamed into societe/card.php to match page naming conventions. * The page compta/facture.php was renamed into compta/facture/card.php to match page naming conventions. * The signature of method ->delete() of class Product and PriceExpression was changed from ->delete(id, notrigger) to ->delete(User, notrigger) to match standard dev rules. * The signature of method ->delete() of class Adherent was changed from ->delete(id) to ->delete(id, User, notrigger) to match standard dev rules. * Removed CommonObject::displayMarginInfos (was deprecated in 3.8). Use same method into html.formmargin.class.php * Removed Societe::set_commnucation_level (was deprecated in 4.0). Was not used. * Removed the trigger file of PAYPAL module that stored data that was not used by Dolibarr. The trigger event still exists, but if an external module need action on it, it must provides itself its trigger file. * Use $conf->global->MULTICOMPANY_TRANSVERSE_MODE instead $conf->multicompany->transverse_mode. So, if you set var $multicompany_transverse_mode to 1 into your conf file, you must remove this line and a new key into the Home - setup - other admin page. * Use getEntity('xxx') instead getEntity('xxx', 1) and use getEntity('xxx', 0) instead getEntity('xxx') * Some other change were done in the way we read permission of a user when module multicompany is enabled. You can retreive the old behavior by adding constant MULTICOMPANY_BACKWARD_COMPATIBILITY to 1. * The hook formObjectOptions was not implemented correctly in previous version. Sometimes, you had to return output content by doing a print into function, sometimes by returning content into "resprint". This has been fixed to follow hook specifications so you must return output into "resprint".
