  • Enhanced the DW Key Feature of Retrieve to show stored procedures when no select statement.

  • Enhanced the object parser to better deal with white space.
  • Fixed a bug in the Unicode file routines, the file content was not being written out as Unicode.
  • Fixed a bug in the Copy Text routine, shift click rows sometimes caused an error when rows where copied to the clipboard.
  • Enhanced the auto sync modified lists feature to use the current items as a fall back simple key compare. This will make all renamed functions checking better but particularly global functions with their parameter lists altered, these will now auto sync.
  • Fixed a bug in the batch interface, if the tip of the day window was enabled and PBDelta was run in batch mode the please wait window would give an error.
V5.2.1 Released 9/23/2006
  • Enhanced the Object parser to handle objects where the source has been changed to end function/event definitions with ~r and not the standard ~r~n.
  • Enhanced the DW parser to deal better with edited source lines.

  • Fixed a bug in the parser, if comments where added to the forward declaration if would fail to parse.

  • Fixed a bug in the file selection window. If you dragged a pbl file from the targets list in the tree it had an erroneous prefix causing the selected item to not be included in the selection list. 
  • Fixed a bug in the batch output command processing. If the log type was anything other than TXT PBDelta was using the main batch command output type and not the log setting. The PSR/PRT options now work as they should.
