UTF-8 Encoding

Hello Rafael

I have just upgraded the jforum from version 2.1.4 to 2.1.8 and have a serious problem with the UTF-8 encoding and the Greek
characters in my Forum.
The web pages of the forum can display the Greek characters but when I try to add a new category, forum or topic the known "???" symbols are displayed and saved in my database.

By the way, my database is a MySQL version 5.0 and uses UTF-8 encoding and collation.
I have also tried the default settings in the mysql.properties configuration file and many combinations without result.

In the same Tomcat - mySQL configuration that hosts jforum, I have installed another JSP-based application which works perfectly using the connection string:
database.connection.string=jdbc\:mysql\://myserver\:3306/myapp?user\=myuser&password\=mypassword&autoReconnect\=true&useUnicode\=true&characterEncoding\=UTF-8
without any problem!!!

Any help?

Thanks a lot
