Changelog since 3.0.0-rc1

Important Notes

In 3.0.0-rc1: during conversion of a SQL Server data database from version 2.5 to 3.0.0-rc1, the auto number counters are reset to 1. This means that new objects will get auto numbers that might be lower than existing objects. This has been fixed in 3.0.0. Also, the auto number counters will be corrected to be at least as high as existing numbers and/or the initial value. There can still be objects with incorrect auto numbers in the database if new objects were created while the project was running. Note that projects that were started in 3.0.x are in the clear.
