Hi Tehy,
Actually, no update is possible. No DB update tool has released (the new sNews DB was changed) and the entirely sNews CMS was rewritten...
Because this, I suggest to you, that the best way to make an update is... copy & paste your articles into your new fresh installation of 1.5RC2 and after finalize your _hard_ work, update your site with the RC2 files.
Sorry If this don't help you as expected.

As Bramsyuur notes, there is no automatic way to transfer data from the database tables in 1.4 to the tables in 1.5. While the articles, categories and comments tables have the same names in both versions, and they do store much of the same information, they do it differently. As an example, the articles table in sNews 1.4 stores image (yes or no) and the text limit (character limit), while 1.5 no longer does. In 1.5, we now store meta description and keyword data that was not in 1.4. As well, the article I.D. and position values in the two tables are different. I should also note that the categories and comments tables are a little different as well. You could create a dump file to dump your data from the 1.4 articles table into the 1.5 articles table but... in order to have it display properly, you would have to manually add values required in 1.5 that were not there in the 1.4 data. Not a simple task.

It's as hard for me, Tehy, I've done it once... with the RC1, but then with the help of others on Gtalk, and I don't remember how to anymore... But do not fear, mon ami, I would think it's quite possible that some tutorial on how to achive this will eventually popup, as there are many 1.4 users out there that want to upgrade... It's bound to turn up some instructions, but perhaps not until the stable version is released.

Be patient, but not a patient :lol:
