When I opened a WebSmart definition I received a message informing me it had been upgraded to the latest definition format. What does this mean?

Product: WebSmart ILE Type: Frequently Asked Question

Question:
I'm opening an older WebSmart definition and getting this message: 

This definition has been upgraded to the latest definition format. Rename the definition (using Save As...) if you do not wish to overwrite the original copy.

Explanation:
Some WebSmart enhancements require changes or improvements to the structure of our underlying definition files. The latest example of this is a feature in WebSmart 9.5 to allow you to select multiple fields with the same name (from different files) in the design wizard. In these cases a definition will be automatically 'upgraded' when you open it in the new version of WebSmart.

Under normal circumstances you shouldn't be concerned by definitions getting updated like this. It will generally only be an issue if you work with multiple versions of WebSmart at the same time and may want to open & review a definition in a newer version, but want to be able to change/regenerate it at an older one. In these cases, as the message suggests, you should make sure you either don't save your changes with the new version, or you save them with a new name.
