I’ve quietly been releasing minor updates to SQL 4 CDS over the past few weeks, so I thought it was time to do a blog post for an “update roll up”
The changes in this version are largely bug fixes, and I’d like to thank everyone who’s let me know about any problems either with a GitHub issue or a comment on here.
One of the most important (to me) changes is a performance improvement in the Intellisense suggestions. With the latest version of XrmToolBox you might have noticed delays as you type, which this update should fix.
On top of that there’s several bug fixes and improvements:
- Fix a crash when converting queries from FetchXML Builder that contain a null or not-null filter on a numeric column
- Warn on queries that use legacy paging and hit the 50,000 record limit
- Added the
CHARINDEXfunction for string manipulation
- Add the virtual __name or __type fields from lookup values that were missing after the first 5,000 records.
As always you can update from the XrmToolBox tool store, or if you’re using the SSMS plugin version you can download the latest installer.
