Upgrade to 0.7.44

After upgrade to 0.7.44, run it in django server It shows that Askbot self-test, this is pretty good. But an error is returned saying that Time to move skin files from d:\dev\askbot\skins\common. Now we have 'askbot/template' and 'askbot/media'

Why does this problem occur?

This happens because some files and directories were moved from askbot/skins.

All templates are now in askbot/templates and all media in askbot/media. All files from default and common were moved to those directories.

Hi Evgeny, I have tried many times that when I checkout to 0.7.44 version, and develop into python, then run askbot-setup, It still can't find css file and javascript file. Have you tried this from a new environment?

Maybe you have deleted some files, or your theme refers to some files that don't exist? Are you missing all files or just one? You could try setting up the latest version from scratch - it should work ...

"from scratch" means a new setup it's an english idiom (look it up:). Are you building on windows? if so - we have not tested that and don't have ability to do it. Tested on linux an macintosh. I think we'll have to rely on users to fix bugs under windows...

Yes, it's on windows. "/m/default/media/style/style.css" how does this kind of urls redirect to the static file? I can't find this url paterns in
