  • Export() function on DbTemplate for seamless exporting
  • Removed the requirement to have DB_DEFAULT defined
  • DisplayList() now places a   for NULL table values for IE border support
  • GetList() and Join() now support cross database queries
  • Added the “required” class to the field items that are required
  • DisplayList() $options can now take a function name as a value for a field.
  • Added the DateTimeDiff() function to the global functions to produce a human readable “time ago” output.
  • Added a type of “settings” for forms to manipulate the Form::Form() function output.
  • A few bug fixes.
