What's new in QMedical
- Compatibility with 4Dv13.

- Fixed compatibility issues with open/save dialogs on Mac OS X 10.7.x (Lion).
Compatibility with 4D Server 64 bit
QMedical now runs under 4D Remote connected to 4D Server 64 bit running on Windows.
Note that QMedical cannot offer any of its functionality on the server side (in stored
methods) when running under 4D Server 64 bit, simply because QuickTime is not available for
64 bit Windows.
Also note that there is a new plug-in included in the package (0QLM.bundle)
that must be installed alongside QMedical, so make sure you read and follow
the updated installation instructions.

4Dv12.2 that prevented the plug-in from functioning in

- Potential crash during startup in 4D 2004.x on Mac OS X. Fixed.
- Potential crash during startup of 4D Server 2004.x on Windows if there
was a TRACE command or a breakpoint in the "On Server Startup" method that
would trigger the 4D Debugger window. Fixed.
- Due to Mac OS 9 backwards compatibility, long filenames returned by
the plug-in could be truncated on Mac OS X. Fixed.
