    CBI Version Release Notes!

    -Added a Help Menu item for this Blog, and redirected the Version History link to this page instead of a .txt file as I’d been doing before

    -Added a new table to the database to help populate the Classifications dropdown for Editors

    -Added Up, Down, Remove options to the Classifications listbox.

    -Added a form to search classifications. Once Character records get updated, this will become a very valuable part of the application.

    -Revised SQL query on the Characters window to look in both Character names and the Notes field for related characters names. This will be useful, for example, by listing a mother’s name under her child’s record. The child will then show up as a related character on her entry.

    -Fixed code that was crashing the “Find Data” feature on Characters and Locations

    -Added listbox counts to related articles labels.

    -Updated color of labels and grouping labels to Dark Red across the board (some forms had it, some didn’t)

    -Disabled “Add to Note” button on “Add Class” and “Add Users” dialogs to keep user from adding a blank space to the Notes.
