String::createStringFromData() with the new String setup is not working anymore for ASCII characters above 127. Is this intentional?
It treats it as UTF8, so if your data is UTF8, it’ll work.
no, it sometimes is plain ASCII with extended characters. I guess I have to write my own method?
There’s no way it could possibly guess which code-page you expect it to use for interpreting the extended characters, so yes, for anything other than utf8 you need to deal with it yourself.
