SQL4 to SQL5 conversion

My hosting service tells me I need to convert from SQL4 to SQL5 before the end of the year. They offer a conversion/migration tool but I was curious as to what I should look out for in re: phpBB. Any advice appreciated! :)

Re: Subject line size

Is there an inherent limit to the number of characters in a subject line? I have played around with trying to increase its display size, but it seems to be limited to approximately 60 characters.

Any advice much appreciated!
