Updates

Important Note!

From version 2.7 are not longer versions 1.x supported. So even updates from so old versions are not supported anymore. I am very sorry. But it is long time since version 1.1 and there was almost 70 new major changes in the code. So it is not possible keep up to date all of it.
Thank you for understanding

Update Version 2.x to 2.x
