I've searched for an answer to my question on the Bugtracker, the existing changelogs and the forums; could not find anything.

The global configuration table contains a dbversion key that references the version of the database structure. Is there any place where differences between these versions are listed?

I know that I could compare the installation SQL scripts, however these do not contain all information.. For example the code that generates a new token table is located somewhere in the PHP code.

If the answer is that there is no changelog available, I'll post it as a suggestion / feature request on the Bugtracker. In my opinion this is important for anyone trying to extract data directly from the database..

On a more practical note I am interested in the differences between dbversion 145 and 155.

Thanks for reading.

I think at /limesurvey/admin/update there are the update scripts which use several IF statements to update an existing DB to the latest version. This should indicate some of the changes.
