    David,

    I just noticed that this was assigned to me, but I'm not sure what this item is...do you recall?

    You had asked me to create this item at the Symposium. It had to do with ensuring that a DLL was compatible with the running version of Rexx. That's all I remember.

    Ok...I believe this might have been to allow the package to specify a required version level in the registration table and have the runtime raise an error automatically if it was backlevel. Does this match your recollection of the conversation?

    A required version number has been added to the package tables to allow a library to assert the minimum interpreter level required by the library.
