CHANGE     10955 In irAuthor, disabled Rule Application tree nodes which are copied will be enabled after the paste operation • By default, irAuthor enables all new nodes added to a Rule Application regardless of a copy/paste operation.
CHANGE     11278 Catalog: Implicitly referenced Data Elements are no longer considered part of the Rule Application Schema • Previously, an implicitly referenced data element was included in the schema – a checkout or sharing of the schema included these items. Examples include: Value lists referred by value-list-bound-fields, Inline Tables referred by a TableLookup() within a calc expression.
CHANGE     12283 When referencing the InRule assembly InRule.Runtime.Testing.dll (used to launch irVerify in-process), three .NET Framework 3.0 assemblies must also be referenced:  WindowsBase, PresentationFramework, and PresentationCore • The irVerify / Regression Testing GUI is now implemented using Windows Presentation Framework (WPF). It is a .NET Framework requirement that WPF assemblies are referenced along with any assembly which implements WPF. The target project type must be set to .NET 3.0 or higher in order to allow these references
CHANGE     12662 The context menu options “Clear Reference,” “View XML” and “Save XML” are disabled on NULL Entity references • These context menu options are not applicable to NULL Entity references
CHANGE     12695 Test results files now contain a hash code to prevent tampering • When saving the test results of a test suite execution, a hash code is added to the results in order to maintain the integrity of the test results. This ensures that for a given test results file, the included rule application and test data are not changed after the results were produced.
CHANGE     12938 InRule setup will not complete if .NET Framework 3.5 or later is not installed. • If .NET Framework 3.5 or later is not installed on the target machine, InRule setup will notify the user of the prerequisite then exit.
CHANGE     12982 The same irSOA instance cannot be hosted by both IIS and Windows Service at the same time • There is no need to support both methods of hosting.
CHANGE     13011 When the exception RuleRuntimeErrorsException occurs during rule execution by irSOA, the WCF fault mechanism will not transmit the exception • This sort of execution error can contain a significant amount of error data. When using the WCF fault mechanism to transmit this error data, a QuotaExceededException can occur.
CHANGE     13011 When the exception RuleRuntimeErrorsException occurs during rule execution by irSOA, the WCF fault mechanism will not transmit the exception • This sort of execution error can contain a significant amount of error data. When using the WCF fault mechanism to transmit this error data, a QuotaExceededException can occur.
CHANGE     13595 A field cannot have the same name as any rule element in the same context or the name of the Rule Application, or names of any Data Elements, Endpoints, Schemas, Categories, and Independent Rule Sets. • This issue was newly-introduced with version Rule Applications authored in a release later than the above through v3.1.0.10495 or v3.2.0.10501 did not enforce this constraint. This constraint was enforced in Rule Applications authored prior to version

This constraint was enforced in Rule Applications authored prior to version
CHANGE     14209 irCatalog: RuleAppSchema upgrader is now explicitly invoked by installer or catalog manager, rather than on first access • For an upgrade install where the RuleAppSchemaVersion has changed, the installer attempts to connect to the service to perform this upgrade.
CHANGE     14291 irCatalog: SQL Server 2000 is no longer supported • Sql Server 2005 or above is now required.
CHANGE     14335 irCatalog: The former “catalog utility” is replaced by “Diagnostics” invoked from the irCatalog Manager UI. • The “Run Diagnostics” option is available from the right-click context menu. When issues are discovered requiring repair, the user is prompted to repair with a list of rule applications affected.
CHANGE     14556 irAuthor: Constraints may no longer be entered on an entity field • Constraints are supported only on value type fields
CHANGE     14622 irSDK: Referencing InRule.Runtime.Testing from .NET Framework 4 project requires System.Xaml reference  
CHANGE     14877 Installer: IIS is now the default hosting scheme for irCatalog and Rule Engine Service • Previously, the default hosting scheme for an msi install was windows service.
CHANGE     36875 irSDK: CreateRuleApplication signature has changed • If using irSDK directly to create rule applications in the catalog, please note the signature of CreateRuleApplication has changed – the compiler error will indicate the new form to use
CHANGE     9802 Samples: Function Reference sample references an InRule web service rather than Terra Service • This sample is found in Samples\FunctionReference

FEATURE    13472 During installation one can specify the event log which is to be used by InRule • Previously a custom event log called “InRule” was created during installation by default.
FEATURE    13547 A new Rule Flow shape has been added for executing collection member rule sets. • The new rectangular shape is purple and labeled “Member RuleSet.”
FEATURE    13564 A new Rule Template is available: Execute Member Rule Set • Rule Templates can now be created which target Rule Sets that are part of a collection member context.
FEATURE    13576 Improved rule execution performance • Enhancements to the rule execution engine have resulted in performance improvements for various client scenarios anywhere from 10 – 20%.
