    "well then .... (many of the biggest changes were introduced in 16)


    any programs compiling with the OBTAIN ... within set .... using .... that
    do not end in a period or semicolon will fial the precompile unless you
    pur on the fix (my opinion is to not put it on and have the program comply
    with the rules (they ARE making changes else it would not be compiling,
    right?)

    if you DBANs against all databtase areas - the journal definition record
    will not be at its defined length unless you alter the journal definition
    (if only to do nothing) - if you do not run DBANs - this will never be a
    problem

    if you have any screen-grabber processes that look for literals on dialog
    or map compiler panels - beware - the literals have changed

    now 2 pool 255s - fun for everyone

    if you are going in SP0 - you will have lots of fun ahead of you in
    applying post SP0 fixes - if you are going in at SP1 - and have ""zap""
    optional fixes - you will have headaches with applying certain new load
    mod replacement fixes .....


    some new nessage at startup and shutdown to be aware of ....
