Hi @WilliamBZA what’s involved to upgrade existing projects to this version? Is any database patch required for existing databases?


There are no schema changes as part of this release so no need to make any DDL changes.

what exactly does “Align startup connection check behavior across transaction modes” mean? how has behavior changed? point to doco?
