Personal Saltkey evolution (since 2.1.24)
Related to bugs existing in the way to manage the PSK, some code changes have an impact on existing Personal Items.
The main impact is that PSK cannot contain anymore symbol characters and is limited to numbers, letters and hyphens.
So before updating, it is mandatory to inform your users that they need to change their PSK in case this one contains a symbol character (especially single quote and double quotes character).
If not done, there is no guarantee that their Personal Items passwords will be readable after migration.
