I stay at v1.4.5 Of course, I want to use v1.5, but since v.1.4.5.xxx Beta, "Unified filename encoding scheme 15 for all backends" can't be updated because of this feature.

I applaud the passionate attitude of the rclone developers. However, this update represents a serious concern. The idea of ​​replacing file naming can go in a completely different direction. Please return to the original naming criteria.

Please open up a new topic as trying to do a bug report or question in the release notes really isn't helpful.

I have already opened a new topic and reported a bug. And I did not ask a question, but expressed concern about the direction.

Awesome. I asked to keep the thread on topic. Thanks!
