One thought on “Online Modeler Updated to 0.95”

  1. There is a bug in the restatement constraint for bitemporal models, which renders it useless. When the constraint is declared the last parameter sent to the function doing the check is the RecordedAt value, but it should be the ErasedAt value. This will be fixed in the next (0.96) version.
