    Changelog

    May 2022

    Added

    • [vscode-cds@4.5.6] file icon for CDS files
    • [vscode-cds@4.5.5] support syntax highlighting for escape sequences in template strings
    • [cds.java@1.24.0] Full support for the Spring Boot Developer Tools allowing much easier and faster development. This includes instant code replacement in test applications deployed to the cloud.
    • [cds.java@1.24.0] The goal watch of the cds-maven-plugin supports the Spring-Boot Developer Tools for a quicker application restart after changes in the CDS model.
    • [cds.java@1.24.0] Added a new event ApplicationStopped to the ApplicationLifecycleService, which can be used to stop background tasks. Note, that this event is not guaranteed to be emitted, when the application terminates. It is first and foremost intended to stop background tasks when Spring closes its ApplicationContext.
    • [cds.java@1.24.0] UserInfo.getAdditionalAttributes() now contains all token claims such as email or aud in case of IAS authentication.
    • [cds.java@1.24.0] Spring’s @Order annotation on event handler classes is now respected and event handlers are registered in that order.
    • [cds.java@1.24.0] Enhanced annotations @cds.on.insert and @cds.on.update with following features:
      • Static values can be assigned
      • Arbitrary user context variables can be assigned, e.g. @cds.on.insert: $user.given_name. The context variables must be mapped from the exposed SAML assertion attributes.

    Changed

    • [cds-dk@4.9.4] Include @sap/cds 5.9.4
    • [cds-dk@4.9.4] Bump axios to latest (CVE-2022-1214)
    • [vscode-cds@4.5.6] updated included cpaire docs
    • [cds.java@1.24.0] The CDS model is no longer reloaded every time when opening a new Request Context. Only the outmost Request Context initially loads the CDS model and propagates it to all inner Request Contexts. The only scenario where the model is still reloaded is when the new Request Context uses a different tenant. This scenario also requires a new ChangeSet Context to be opened in addition.
    • [cds.java@1.24.0] If a ChangeSet Context is opened without an existing Request Context the latter is opened implicitly as well.
    • [cds.java@1.24.0] The $metadata endpoints now stream the original EDMX directly, without serializing the internal Olingo EDMX representation. Beside much better performance this allows to make use of OData dynamic expressions now.
    • [cds.java@1.24.0] HTTP Headers from the $batch request are now propagated to the inner requests, if they do not yet exist there. This means those headers are now available through the context.getParameterInfo().getHeaders() method, when processing a request defined in a $batch request.
    • [cds.java@1.24.0] UserInfo.getName() now returns the subject of the token (property sub) in case of IAS authentication.
    • [cds.java@1.24.0] When a new request context is opened with a modified ParameterInfo, null values and empty strings as correlation id in the ParameterInfo object are not interpreted as an intention to overwrite an existing correlation id in the MDC, anymore, and therefore are silently ignored

    Fixed

    • [vscode-cds@4.5.5] find references could have shown wrong entries from localized context
    • [cds.java@1.24.0] Fixed a bug, causing the audit log service to send a message without a tenant, instead of properly using the provider tenant.
    • [cds.java@1.24.0] Fixed a bug, causing issues with OData V4 URLs, which contained the service path also in other parts of the URL (e.g. the domain).
    • [cds.java@1.24.0] Fixed a bug, causing issues with OData V4 URLs, which contained filters on properties that have reserved identifiers as prefix such as INF.
    • [cds.java@1.24.0] Fixed a bug introduced with version 1.23.0, causing connection issues with MTX sidecar in context of DwC.
    • [cds.java@1.24.0] Key elements of type String that are annotated with @cds.on.insert: $uuid now get a string representation of a UUID assigned.
    • [cds@5.9.5] HDB_TCP_KEEP_ALIVE_IDLE config
    • [cds@5.9.5] A combination of != operator and or in where clauses of @restrict annotations or when adjusting req.query in custom handlers (OData services only)
    • [cds@5.9.5] Programmatic calls to bound actions/functions do have keys in req.data again if compat flag cds.env.features.keys_in_data_compat is set
    • [cds@5.9.4] Error messages are improved if no passport module was found or if no xsuaa service binding is available
    • [cds@5.9.4] Issue fixed for srv.get(). It was returning TypeError in plain REST usage for external services, e.g. srv.get('/some/arbitrary/path/111')
    • [cds@5.9.4] Allow unrestricted services to run unauthenticated, removing the Unable to require required package/file "passport" error. Totally not recommended in production. Note that though this restores pre 5.9.0 behavior, this will come again starting in 6.0.
    • [cds@5.9.4] Audit logging of sensitive data in a composition child if its parent is annotated with @PersonalData.EntitySemantics: 'Other' and has no data privacy annotations other than @PersonalData.FieldSemantics: 'DataSubjectID' annotating a corresponding composition, for example:
        annotate Customers with @PersonalData : {
          DataSubjectRole : 'Address',
          EntitySemantics : 'Other'
        } {
          addresses @PersonalData.FieldSemantics: 'DataSubjectID';
        }
        annotate CustomerPostalAddress with @PersonalData : {
          DataSubjectRole : 'Address',
          EntitySemantics : 'DataSubject'
        } {
          ID @PersonalData.FieldSemantics : 'DataSubjectID';
          street @PersonalData.IsPotentiallyPersonal;
          town @PersonalData.IsPotentiallySensitive;
        }

    • [cds.java@1.23.1] The cds-feature-auditlog-v2 now sends audit logs to the audit server in the context of the provider tenant if the tenant in UserInfo is null.
    • [cds.java@1.23.1] The runtime now returns a server error with a meaningful error message when a transaction unexpectedly fails to open.
    • [cds@5.9.3] Since 5.8.2 req.target for requests like srv.put('/MyService.entity') is defined, but req.query undefined (before req.target was also undefined). This was leading to accessing undefined, which has been fixed.
    • [cds@5.9.3] Custom actions with names conflicting with methods from service base classes, e.g. run(), could lead to hard-to-detect errors. This is now detected and avoided with a warning.
    • [cds@5.9.3] Typed methods for custom actions were erroneously applied to cds.db service, which led to server crashes, e.g. when the action was named deploy().

    • [cds@5.9.2] Limited support of SELECT queries with operator expressions (xpr)
    • [cds@5.9.1] Function arguments might be escaped too often
    • [cds@5.9.1] URL encoding for remote services for CQN queries
    • [cds@5.9.1] cds serve during development again redirects URLs for UI apps in a folder with the same name as a service, so /foo/webapp would redirect to /foo again. This got broken in 5.8.3.

    March 2022

    Added

    • [cds-dk@4.9.0] cds parse as convenient shortcut to cds compile --flavor parsed.
    • [cds-dk@4.9.0] cds compile --to openapi uses value of annotation @Common.Label on entities, actions, and functions for operation tags, diagram includes non-primitive action and function import parameters.
    • [cds-dk@4.9.0] cds add now accepts --for <profile> argument to create Node,js project configuration for a given profile
    • [cds-dk@4.9.0] cds add approuter allows for serving your application’s UI using SAP approuter.
    • [cds-dk@4.9.0] cds add kibana-logging adds Kibana-friendly logging in a more convenient way than having to manually alter the package.json.
    • [eslint-plugin-cds@2.3.3] Added new rule no-dollar-prefixed-names
    • [eslint-plugin-cds@2.3.3] Lint reports with rules marked with ‘!’ notify of rule compile errors
    • [eslint-plugin-cds@2.3.3] Lint reports of any thrown errors can be exposed by --debug (includes stack)
    • [vscode-cds@4.5.2] new code-formatting options for actions and functions:
      • alignActionNames (aligns names)
      • alignActionReturns (aligns returns keywords)
    • [cds-compiler@2.13.0] CDL syntax:
      • Allow to extend E:elem and annotate E:elem instead of having to write deeply nested statements.
      • Enable default values as part of scalar type definitions.
      • The following extend syntax variants are now possible:
        extend … with elements { … }
        extend … with definitions { … }
        extend … with columns { … }
        extend … with enum { … }
        extend … with actions { … }
        

        This syntax expresses how an artifact is extended instead of what is extended.

      • Using ORDER BY in generic functions such as SAP HANA’s first_value is now possible.
    • [cds-compiler@2.13.0] Make API function compileSources accept CSN objects as file content
    • [cds-compiler@2.13.0] to.edm(x): Annotate view parameters with @sap.parameter: mandatory (V2) and @Common.FieldControl: #Mandatory (V4).
    • [cds-compiler@2.13.0] to.sql/hdi/hdbcds: Introduce the annotations @sql.prepend and @sql.append that allow inserting user-written SQL snippets into the compiler generated content. Changes in annotations @sql.prepend and @sql.append are now reflected in the output of to.hdi.migration. This enables CDS Build to produce .hdbmigrationtable files translating such model changes into schema changes.
    • [cds-compiler@2.13.0] API: Lists of keywords for various backends are available as to.<backend>[.<config>].keywords, e.g. to.sql.sqlite.keywords.
    • [cds-compiler@2.13.0] for.odata/to.edm(x): The draft composition hull is now also taking into account compositions in subelements.
    • [cds.java@1.23.0] @Core.ContentID is now present on OData V4 error responses, allowing to correspond OData ChangeSet error messages with the request causing the error.
    • [cds.java@1.23.0] Improved the AuthenticationInfo API to grant easier access to raw authentication information such as JWT tokens.
    • [cds.java@1.23.0] The AuthenticationInfo can now be accessed from the RequestContext and EventContext and is provided as a Spring bean. It is also propagated to child threads when propagating the RequestContext.
    • [cds.java@1.23.0] Introduced new pseudo-role internal-user which allows authorization for clients that share the same authentication secret as the server (e.g. same XSUAA instance).
    • [cds.java@1.23.0] Added default set of mock users reflecting the pseudo roles. They are named authenticated, system, internal and privileged and can be used with an empty password.
    • [cds.java@1.23.0] Added integration with Cloud SDK’s RequestHeaderFacade ensuring HTTP headers are propagated to Cloud SDK.
    • [cds.java@1.23.0] The goal install-cdsdk of the cds-maven-plugin provides the new parameter arguments to pass additional arguments to the command line.
    • [cds.java@1.23.0] Added properties cds.auditlog.outbox and cds.messaging.<service>.outbox that control the usage of the (persistent) Outbox in Auditlog resp. Messaging services.
    • [cds.java@1.23.0] Added mTLS (x509 certificates) authentication support for XSUAA-based platform services: Service Manager, Enterprise Messaging, SaaS Provisioning and Auditlog.
    • [cds.java@1.23.0] When using SAP HANA Cloud you can now enable a shared connection pool using property cds.multiTenancy.dataSource.combinePools.enabled without having to specify all database instances using property cds.multiTenancy.dataSource.hanaDatabaseIds.
    • [cds4j@1.27.0] Allow to explicitly turn off draft-enabled associations
    • [cds4j@1.27.0] Support on condition resolution with Effective CSN
    • [cds4j@1.27.0] Collectors to connect a stream of predicates with AND or OR
    • [cds4j@1.27.0] Support new values for managed data (@cds.on.insert and @cds.on.update)
      • [cds4j@1.27.0] $user.locale and $user.tenant to set data from the user info
      • [cds4j@1.27.0] $uuid to automatically generate UUID values
    • [cds@5.9.0] Enable custom audit logging implementation by subclassing or prepending cds.AuditLogService
    • [cds@5.9.0] Log authentication/authorization traces, for example, authentication strategy, and access control decisions to facilitate troubleshooting in debug mode.
    • [cds@5.9.0] Bound functions and actions calls with odata-v2 from remote service
    • [cds@5.9.0] Beta support for procedure calls with table output data (SAP HANA only)
      • Both hdb and @sap/hana-client currently do not support parameter metadata for table output. To provide the functionality anyways, CAP must fetch the metadata itself. As this is not CAP’s expertise, the feature is only beta.
      • All parameters must be named or unnamed, that is CALL EXAMPLE_PROC(PARAM_1 => ?,PARAM_2 => ?) or CALL EXAMPLE_PROC(?,?)
    • [cds@5.9.0] Alpha cds.ApplicationService.getRestrictions(definition, event, user), which returns the applicable restrictions for the current request as follows:
      • null: unrestricted access
      • []: no applicable restrictions -> no access
      • [{ grant: '...', to: ['...'], where: '...' }, ...]: applicable restrictions with grant normalized to strings
        • That is, grant: ['CREATE', 'UPDATE'] in model becomes [{ grant: 'CREATE' }, { grant: 'UPDATE' }]
      • Promise resolving to any of the above (needed for CAS override)
    • [cds@5.9.0] Internal model provider service can be used for obtaining dynamic csn including features and key user extensions
    • [cds@5.9.0] Support insert of SQL snippets for HANA migration tables using @sql.append and @sql.prepend annotations.
    • [cds@5.9.0] Support for the @odata.draft.enclosed annotation on associations targeted via navigation — previously only supported for $expand
    • [cds@5.9.0] Pseudo role internal-user for technical user tokens acquired from own XSUAA instance
    • [cds@5.9.0] Include globally-installed cds-dk version in output of cds version.
    • [cds@5.9.0] Include version of cds-mtx in output of cds version, if available.
    • [cds@5.9.0] Feature toggle support in cds build for cloud deployments. Create language bundles and parsed CSN for all features.

    Changed

    • [cds-dk@4.9.0] cds init does not create VS Code file exclusions anymore, so that .vscode/ and .gitignore are visible by default, allowing easier editing of these files.
    • [cds-dk@4.9.0] cds init reports Maven archetype version in console if called with --add java.
    • [cds-dk@4.9.0] cds init uses latest Maven Java archetype version 1.22.2 for creating Java projects.
    • [cds-dk@4.9.0] cds import modified documentation for namespace option.
    • [cds-dk@4.9.0] cds import does not create bound function imports key parameters in CSN for OData V2.
    • [cds-dk@4.9.0] cds import now when --keep-namespace option is not given validates the file name and then converts it to complier supported format as service name .
    • [cds-dk@4.9.0] add new methods from FsUtil to typescript interface.
    • [cds-dk@4.8.2] cds init uses latest Maven Java archetype version 1.22.1 for creating Java projects.
    • [vscode-cds@4.5.2] removed obsolete code-formatting option alignAsInElements (calculated fields use = now)
    • [cds-compiler@2.13.0] In query entities inside services, only auto-redirect associations and compositions in the main query of the entity.
    • [cds-compiler@2.13.0] An element now inherits the property notNull from its query source (as before) or its type (like it does for most other properties); notNull is then not further propagated to its sub elements anymore.
    • [cds-compiler@2.13.0] A structure element inherits the property virtual from its query source (as before), but does not further propagate virtual to its sub elements (semantically of course, but the CSN is not cluttered with it); there is a new warning if a previously virtual query entity element is now considered to be non-virtual.
    • [cds-compiler@2.13.0] Do not propagate annotation value null. The value null of an annotation (and doc) is used to stop the inheritance of an annotation value. This means than other than that, a value null should not be handled differently to not having set that annotation.
    • [cds-compiler@2.13.0] In the effective CSN, the structure type is only expanded if something has changed for associations: the target (keys does not change if the target does not change) unmanaged associations as sub elements are not supported anyway.
    • [cds-compiler@2.13.0] In the effective CSN, “simple” type properties like length, precision, scale and srid are propagated even for a propagation via type.
    • [cds-compiler@2.13.0] Update OData Vocabularies: ‘Capabilities’, ‘Common’, ‘Core’, ‘UI’.
    • [cds-compiler@2.13.0] to.sql:
      • For SQL dialect hana referential constraints are now appended as ALTER TABLE ADD CONSTRAINT clause to the end of schema.sql. With option constraintsInCreateTable constraints are rendered into the CREATE TABLE statement.
      • Referential constraint names are now prefixed with c__.
    • [cds.java@1.23.0] Removed RequestContextRunner.recalculateFeatureToggles() without substitution. RequestContextRunner.featureToggles(FeatureTogglesInfo) is only allowed when creating the initial RequestContext of a request. The method throws an exception otherwise.
    • [cds4j@1.27.0] If the data of deep Insert or deep Update contains values of an associated entity but the (forward mapped) association does not cascade the Insert/Update operation, the relationship is established instead of throwing an exception
    • [cds@5.9.0] Cleaned up cds.env.requires towards a consistent usage:
      • Moved all entries of cds.requires to cds.requires.kindscds.requires is empty now by default, but has cds.requires.kinds as prototype, so e.g. cds.requires.sql will still return a match.
      • Added support for db-specific cds.requires.db.deploy-format → deprecating cds.hana.deploy-format (which is still supported for compatibility)
      • Introduced cds.requires.kinds.hana-cloud as {kind:hana, deploy-format:hdbtable} → to be used by default for production
      • Changed cds.requires.audit-log to be consistent to all other; also got moved to cds.requires.kinds.audit-log, so it is no longer activated by default.
      • Added support for cds.requires.foo: true with foo being a preset/prototype entry in cds.requires.kinds → allows to more easily switch on pre-configured services.
    • [cds@5.9.0] Update-managed properties (@cds.on.update) are always updated
      • Example: UPDATE('Books').set({}).where({ ID: 1 }) leads to new modifiedAt and modifiedBy
      • Does not apply to nested entities that are only preserved by specifying their primary keys in the data
      • Deactivate during two month grace period via compact feature flag cds.env.features.update_managed_properties = false
    • [cds@5.9.0] Response no longer contains keys neither technical draft properties (e.g. HasDraftEntity or InProcessByUser) in expanded data if they were not requested explicitly when using cds.Service API
      • Example:
        > await srv.read('Authors', a => { a.name, a.books(b => { b.title }) }).where({ ID: 1 })
        // -> "old behaviour" result
        [{ name: 'Emily Brontë', books: [{ title: 'Wuthering Heights', ID: 201 }] }]
        // -> "new behaviour" result
        [{ name: 'Emily Brontë', books: [{ title: 'Wuthering Heights' }] }]
        
      • Technical draft properties are not automatically fetched also on a root level
      • Deactivate during two month grace period via compat feature flag cds.env.features.auto_fetch_expand_keys = true
    • [cds@5.9.0] Access control is checked in generic handlers (rather than handlers materialized on app startup)
    • [cds@5.9.0] Expand restriction check moved to pre-before phase
    • [cds@5.9.0] The active state of an entity is read instead of the draft state when navigating from a draft entity to a draft-enabled entity via an association.
    • [cds@5.9.0] Authentication middleware is always mounted (used to be only for restricted services)
    • [cds@5.9.0] Fiori preview now uses the Horizon theme
    • [cds@5.9.0] ‘Preview’ links in generic index.html page no longer get the word preview appended automatically, allowing for more flexible naming. Link providers should make sure to add the preview word if necessary.
    • [cds@5.9.0] Don’t throw error in GraphQL adapter if update mutation filter does not match any entries (to be consistent with delete mutations)
    • [cds@5.9.0] Remote call of unbound action/function returns octet-stream instead of string by default
    • [cds@5.9.0] Default pool’s behaviour has been changed from FIFO (queue) to LIFO (stack). Can be changed in pool configuration.
    • [cds@5.9.0] cds run/serve now gracefully shuts down the HTTP server before exiting. Custom handlers for signals like SIGTERM or SIGINT can now be processed.
    • [cds@5.9.0] cds build no longer creates COMMENT statements for HANA if doc comments are present in CDS models. The statements caused superfluous table migrations during HANA deployments.

    Fixed

    • [cds-dk@4.9.0] cds compile --to openapi now correctly treats null and the empty string as function parameters.
    • [cds-dk@4.9.0] cds bind --exec no command output (STDOUT) displayed on Windows.
    • [cds-dk@4.9.0] cds watch now gracefully shuts down the live reload server before exiting

    January 2022

    Added

    • [cds-dk@4.8.0] cds import now reflects the entity set and entity container level annotations in the csn.
    • [cds-dk@4.8.0] cds activate --sync allows to use the synchronous server API for extension upload.
    • [cds-compiler@2.12.0] CDL parser: You can now use multiline string literals and text blocks. Use backticks (`) for string literals that can span multiple lines and can use JavaScript-like escape sequences such as \u{0020}. You can also use three backticks (```) for strings (a.k.a. text blocks) which are automatically indentation-stripped and can have an optional language identifier that is used for syntax highlighting, similar to markdown. In difference to the former, text blocks require the opening and closing backticks to be on separate lines. Example: @annotation: Multi line\u{0020}strings @textblock: xml <summary> <detail>The root tag has no indentation in this example</detail> </summary>
    • [cds-compiler@2.12.0] Enhance the ellipsis operator ... for array annotations by an up to ‹val›: only values in the array of the base annotation up to (including) the first match of the specified ‹val› are included at the specified place in the final array value. An array annotation can have more than on ... up to ‹val› items and must also have a pure ... item after them. A structured ‹val› matches if the array item is also a structure and all property values in ‹val› are equal to the corresponding property value in the array value; it is not necessary to specify all properties of the array value items in ‹val›. Example @Anno: [{name: one, val: 1}, {name: two, val: 2}, {name: four, val: 4}] type T: Integer; @Anno: [{name: zero, val: 0}, … up to {name: two}, {name: three, val: 3}, …] annotate T;
    • [cds-compiler@2.12.0] for.odata: Support @cds.on {update|insert} as replacement for deprecated @odata.on { update|insert } to set @Core.Computed.
    • [cds@5.8.0] Custom server.js don’t have to export cds.server anymore -> we use that by default now.
    • [cds@5.8.0] In cds.requires: Support to replace primitive values with objects
    • [cds@5.8.0] Support filter functions on renamed properties from external service
    • [cds@5.8.0] Results of database queries use big.js for values of type cds.Decimal and cds.Integer64 if enabled via cds.env.features.bigjs

    • [cds@5.8.0] Support for GET requests on service root in REST adapter (old and new)
    • [cds@5.8.0] Support for HEAD requests in REST adapter (old and new)
    • [cds@5.8.0] New hook req.before('commit')

    • [cds@5.8.0] Check that all keys are provided in REST adapter
    • [cds@5.8.0] Restrict access to all services via cds.env.requires.auth.restrict_all_services = true
      • That is, all unrestricted services (i.e., w/o own @requires) are treated as having @requires: 'authenticated-user'
    • [cds@5.8.0] Threshold for automatically sending GET requests as $batch (beta, cf. @sap/cds@5.6.0) can be configured per remote service via cds.env.requires.<srv>.max_get_url_length (if not configured on service, the global config applies)
    • [cds@5.8.0] Alpha out-of-the-box support for DwC
      • Authentication based on headers set by Jupiter router via cds.env.requires.auth.kind = 'dwc-auth'
      • All DwC headers are forwarded to remote service via cds.env.requires.<srv>.forward_dwc_headers = true
    • [cds@5.8.0] Limited support for binary data in OData
      • In payloads, the binary data must be a base64 encoded string
      • In URLs, the binary data must have the following format: binary'<url-safe base64 encoded>', for example, $filter=ID eq binary'Q0FQIE5vZGUuanM='
      • The use of binary data in some advanced constructs like $apply and /any() may be limited
      • On SQLite, the base64 encoded string is stored to the database
      • It is strongly discouraged to use binary data as keys. See “Primary Keys — Best Practices” in documentation.
    • [cds@5.8.0] Support for OData annotation @Core.ContentDisposition.Type with attachment as the default value
    • [cds@5.8.0] Support for returning custom stream objects in custom handlers (beta):
      • Example:
        return {
          value: instanceof Readable || null,
          $mediaContentType = 'image/jpeg',
          $mediaContentDispositionFilename = 'foo.bar', // > optional
          $mediaContentDispositionType = 'inline' // > optional
        }
        
    • [cds-mtx@2.5.2] It is now checked if CDS annotations @sql.append and @sql.prepend are used in extensions. Using these annotations in extensions is currently not allowed.

    Changed

    • [cds-dk@4.8.0] The forked package @mendix/sqlite3 is now used instead of sqlite3 to overcome CVE-2021-32804. No code changes in applications are needed, as the new package installed by npm with the same name sqlite3.
    • [cds-dk@4.8.0] [beta] The templating for cds init and cds add has been rewritten from scratch. This will allow for some new, more complex commands, such as cds add mtx or cds add xsuaa.
    • [cds-dk@4.7.3] Bump follow-redirects package to 1.14.7 (CVE-2022-0155)
    • [eslint-plugin-cds@2.3.2] Rule require-2many-oncond now also detect navigations of aspects for flavor ‘parsed’
    • [eslint-plugin-cds@2.3.2] Removed duplicates from rule results of category ‘Environment’
    • [cds-compiler@2.12.0] Update OData Vocabularies ‘Aggregation’, ‘Capabilities’, ‘Common’, ‘Core’, PersonalData, ‘Session’, ‘UI’
    • [cds@5.8.0] cds deploy --to hana now uses cf curl instead of cf command natively
    • [cds@5.8.0] Event Mesh: In multitenancy mode, messaging artifacts are also deployed for provider accounts (unless the service option deployForProvider is set to false)
    • [cds@5.8.0] Status code in case of multiple errors (rules apply in order):
      • If all errors have the same status code, that status code is used
      • If there is at least one 5xx status code, the resulting status code is 500
      • If there is at least one 4xx status code, the resulting status code is 400
      • If none of the rules apply, the resulting status code is 500
    • [cds@5.8.0] Ignore the If-Match HTTP request header for UPDATE/DELETE requests whose target entities are not annotated with the @odata.etag annotation.
    • [cds@5.8.0] I18n template strings now are replaced in EDMX documents such that they can occur multiple times. For example, the {i18n>key1} - {i18n>key2} template results in value1 - value2, while previously only the first string was replaced, leading to value1 - {i18n>key2}. This is helpful for the Template strings of UI.ConnectedFields.
