* In the Trace viewer, the microhelp now shows the script name

* Improved SQL formatting

* formatting of parenthesized compound logical expressions
* subqueries in WHERE clauses broken out more clearly

* Improved SQL parsing (will affect things like DB Column Usage
report)
* handling of outer join syntaxes
* improved handling of logical expressions
* handling of bracket enclosed identifiers

* Performance improvements
* DB Column Usage report significantly faster

>>>>>>>>>
And, for those that haven't seen 4.0.0 yet:

New Features

* Unified version. Now one version of PBL Peeper will deal with all
versions of PowerBuilder!

* Command line parameters to load an application can be qualified
with the /PBVER parameter.

* Lists / Scripts / View / Show / Line Counts will give you the
option of counting comment lines and blank lines

* QuickFilter instantly filters based on the value of the current
row/column selected.

* New list of containers (PBLs, export folders)

* A new way to select applications, the Grid interface retains the
filter and sort between application runs, so you can keep your primary
applications at the top of the list, or sorted how you like, or found
with Find or QuickFind.

* New Reports
* DWObject Expressions: Lists attributes of DW Objects that have
expressions
* Orphaned ItemChanged: Report columns in ItemChanged events with
non-visible columns or columns with no UI presence.

* New Processor
* Synchronize DataWindow Edit.Limit: Synchronizes any non-zero
edit.limit attribute in DataWindow char columns to the length of the
data element.

* Rich text output can now be saved as Word, HTML or PDF files.

* View / Reset Splitters (or double-clicking the splitters) will
reset the positions of its adjacent controls if it becomes incorrectly
positioned.

* Browse RMB:
Jump from DataWindow UI column to data set column
Find one or more strings in the selected object
Find the current object elsewhere in the application

* Lists / DW Columns / View / Show / UI Elements shows the UI columns
linked to a data set column

* Refresh App: Allows you to reset all the indexing of your selected
application if the contents of the objects change since the time you
loaded the application.


Enhancements

* GUI Enhancements. More new icons

* Application compare will work much faster for cases where most
objects haven't changed

* Command line parameter /INITPAGE now accepts subpages, delimited by
a backslash (e.g. /INITPAGE:Lists\Scripts)

* Performance enhancements, particularly indexing DataWindows.

* Improved SQL parsing and formatting, including ANSI outer joins.

* When browsing the trace treeview, the stack depth is displayed in
the status area.

* Moved the Find qualifiers to search comments and quotes to the item
level. Different Find strings can now be individually included or
excluded from comments and string searches.

* When a Find is initiated with an Object Filter active and no
matches are found, you are prompted with the option to repeat the
search without the filter.

* Most reports (where it makes sense) respect the Object Filter:
* Application Print
* Comments Extract
* DataWindow SQL
* Embedded SQL Extract
* MultiTable Registry Stmts
* Verify DW SQL

* Other types of PowerScript targets new in PB11 will be loaded into
the PBLs treeview.

* Versions of PowerBuilder loaded into the PBLs treeview is no longer
constrained by the version of PowerBuilder used to compile PBL Peeper.

* DataWindow SQL report now provides options to print data set and to
page break between DataWindows.

* Database Column Usage report will now show "<all columns>" when "*"
is used in the SQL.

* The PBR Plus report now produces an output that lists graphics that
it can't find.

* The /INITPAGE parameter now takes backslashes to indicate subpages
(e.g. LISTS\SCRIPTS will start you on the Scripts subpage)
