3.1 Notable change in behavior in automatic schema changes

There was a bug found that the user given default value setting of an attribute was not used in the entity re-create change case (ADE runs it as INSERT...SELECT statement) for new columns, when an entity has changed so, that entity re-create is required. Now this is fixed and will change the earlier behavior.

3.2 Known Issues

3.2.1 After any update, upgrade, maintenance, there is one-time error in Code Preview / SQL Export

After downtime there comes one-time error related to key already exists when using SQL Export first time. From there on it should work just ok.
