- Add the KeySeq column to the sys_foreignkeys table.
 - 2021-08-06Changed
- Add the new sys_primarykeys system table.
 - 2021-07-23Changed
- Updated the Literal Function Names for relative date/datetime functions. Previously relative date/datetime functions resolved to a different value when used in the projection vs te predicate. Ie: SELECT LAST_MONTH() AS lm, Col FROM Table WHERE Col > LAST_MONTH(). Formerly the two LAST_MONTH() methods would resolve to different datetimes. Now they will match.
- As a replacement for the previous behavior, the relative date/datetime functions in the criteria may have an 'L' appended to them. Ie: WHERE col > L_LAST_MONTH(). This will continue to resolve to the same values that previously were calculated in the criteria. Note that the "L_" prefix will only work in the predicate - it not available for the projection.

Excel Add-In Changes
 - 2021-07-26Added
- Added the possibility to sort via UI on the "CData Query" form. The order of the sort is defined by reordering the columns.
 - 2021-07-21Removed
- Removed support for .NET 3.5. Before upgrade/downgrade, a clean uninstall and then the same product versions install should be performed. So, if we want to downgrade, all the downgrade build versions must be with a .NET 3.5 support. If we want to upgrade, all the upgrade build versions must be with the dropped .NET 3.5 support.
