     9DeepaMehta 4.1 is the most important DM4 release so far as it comes with a **sustainability guarantee for your data**. For the first time, data you enter in DM4 is guaranteed to be transferred to all future DM4 releases automatically. So, you can start ''real'' DM4-based projects with ''real'' data now.

     11Besides that, there there are no new big features in this release, but fixes of crucial bugs and some improvements in usability and functionality. Furthermore the DM Core is further optimized and the plugin development framework is improved. Update operations perform faster. Plugin developers benefit from a **DB-attached !CompositeValue object** which simplifies complex update operations.
