Migrate to 3.6.0

Local installation

When upgrading to 3.6.0 the character set of the ftrack / database connection will change from latin1 to utf-8. During the 3.6.0 upgrade string characters will be converted to the utf-8 character set. This change should not be noticeable from the ftrack Connect, ftrack or the APIs.

Please make sure to read this before running the upgrade:

The upgrade may take a long time to complete, so make sure to run it in staging environment before upgrading production and plan a sufficient maintenance window. If you are using custom connections to the database you must ensure that those connections are using the utf-8 character set after the migration. If not, data read/written may be corrupted as it is interpreted using the wrong encoding.

Warning:

        Using ftrack's database directly is not supported or advised.
