 +=== Upgrades ===
 +<WRAP indent>
 +A customer reported a failure to upgrade his systems running version 7.0.5 to version
 +7.1.1. This resulted in a non-functional system. Analysis learned that a series of
 +database modifications (patches) that are part of this upgrade path were not executed,
 +and others that were part of older already revisions, were executed unnecessary.
 +
 +This caused a mismatch in database definitions and contents that did not match the 
 +programming,​ resulting in failed operation. ​
 +
 +The patch-administration code is now modified to properly select patches from a revision
 +and deal with subsequent version changes.
 +
 +> Update: A related issue was found and corrected where table modifications would not take place based on expected patchlevels.

 +
 +=== Scenario '​relation'​ function ===
 +<WRAP indent>
 +It was found that the '​relation'​ function in scenarios could give inconsistent results.
 +Repeated execution of the same scenario would randomly provide the expected value or
 +no value at all.
 +
 +This issue was resolved.
 +</​WRAP>​
 +
 +=== send_email scenario function ===
 +<WRAP indent>
 +The scenario function to send emails, ''​send_email'',​ was recently extended to support ​
 +attachments. The change also included a syntactic validation of the email addresses.
 +
 +It now became apparent that this email validation was too strict resulting in an empty
 +list of recipients with the error message "No email-address to send mail to"​. ​
 +This situation has been corrected.
 +</​WRAP>​
 +
 +=== Database restore ===
 +<WRAP indent>
 +Along with the arrival of the new decade, a problem with restoring of database archives became ​
 +apparent: Archive files having a 2020 date cannot be restored. ​
 +
 +The issue was resolved by correctly validating the archive names for the 2020's and 2030'​s.
