Logical Forms (forms with no ui) can be extended now to become a absolute or a responsive form, so now you can have shared code between an absolute or responsive form.


In Memory datasources have an onload event (in the table events tab) where you can attach a method (entity or global) that is called when the in mem is touched so that you can fill the datasource
so it is now more a pull stuff then a push that you needed to do at some point (like on solution load)

Named Foundset support, In the designer you can give a datasource of a form a name (besides 'separate'). This creates at runtime a foundset with that name that forms with the same name will reuse
also datasources.db.table.getFoundset("name") will return that specific instance. You can see this as a named (shared) separate

Servoy Properties:
1> enhanced support for environment variables, so you can substitute system properties/environment variables by using tags in the file that are then replaced.
2> War export has 2 extra options where you can say how an existing file at the tomcat server should be used: Use the server one (default), override the database properties, overwrite completely.
