*** Backwards Compatibility Note ***********************************************
*** the following changes may slightly change the way updated models behave ****
  • Expressions can now be used in select columns of an sql query. In order to do this we needed to change our sql grammar to be more compliant with standard SQL. This means you can no longer use the AS clause in a WHERE or ORDER BY statement. You can now only use AS in SELECT and FROM clauses.
  • Some parameter types for the query command have changed in c++ for more flexible type definitions. This means if you use the query() command in a c++ dll, you'll need to update your dll's headers and recompile the dll. If you use straight c++ compiled code or flexscript for your query() command, then this should just update.
  • Removed expertfit.
