The following general changes have been made in Version 1.1.
Handling is added for storing, retrieving, and querying the following metadata types:
char — for Latin 1 character set
string — for Unicode character set
Query and queryplus are merged.
Prepared statements (pstmts) are introduced to handle the values of queries that cannot be placed inline, and a new query is introduced to handle them.
The handling of strings that are longer than the string length of the associated field has changed.
In 5800 system version 1.1, an attempt to store a value that is longer than the associated field generates an immediate error.
