Following changes may create regressions for some external modules, but were necessary to make Dolibarr better:

* If you use some links like viewimages.php?modulepart=mycompany&file=... in your external modules, you must replace them with links like viewimages.php?modulepart=mycompany&file=logos/... (note that link change only for modulepart=mycompany that now works like others).
* Remove the no more used and deprecated dol_print_graph function
