    Some further information on error displays in 4.2.2 ;

    As part of the php compliance changes, error reporting in 4.2.2 was fixed to take account of the new strict & deprecated errors added in php 5.x
    A side effect of this is that old (existing) errors that were not showing up may also now get displayed.

    All of the errors we encounted during testing were corrected, but there may be more.
    If you encounter such an error, then please log it in the vB4 Jira project, so we are aware of it.

    If you need to disable error displays you can do the following ;

    Add the following line to your config.php ;
    PHP Code:

    This will bypass the additional reporting added in 4.2.2 (i.e work as previous versions have done).

    If necessary, you can also add the following to your config.php ;
    PHP Code:

    This will bypass all (non fatal) error reporting.

    Note that in vB 4.2.3, the additional reporting is not enabled by default, so the above options are not required (and wont do anything).
