I have a problems with cyrillic symbols after upgrade QGIS (by OSGeo4W)
First, no longer work correctly setting of the encoding in the file opening dialog(with no error or warnings message, layer opened only in UTF-8)
Second, when create a new shapefile (in windows-1251 encoding -see appl.)cyrillic symbols just do not display correctly too.

Creating of .cpg file working correctly only for UTF-8.

Thanks, Giovanni
I knew about this issues, but problem stay unsolved because: 1) .cpg not working correctly under Windows with "windows-1251" 2) OSGeo4W does't allow downgrade to GDAL1.8
May be you know some way to downgrade GDAl for Windows user without compiling?

I 'm use OpenOffic.Calc for correctly encode .dbf (open/save with "windows-1251")
