Migration from 3.18 to version 4.0 - sepinf-inc/IPED Wiki
All profiles were unified, they are not specific for each language anymore. Default profile was moved to root folder again. Profiles are now differential, just the differences to the default profile are configured into other profiles. This makes it easy to identify the differences between profiles. If you change some config in the default (root) profile, that will be applied to other profiles too, except if the config option is overriden/fixed into them.
Several options related to old features were renamed, merged or moved to different configuration files, they are listed below. For new options of new features, check the user manual.
