On a similar vein': enough users have gotten confused by the behavior of the system with RECOMPILEDEFAULT=EXPRS that I changed the default to CHANGES. That''s what it is with ABC loaded anyway.'
This needs to be explained in the release message so that people can set it back if they know what is going on.'
We can also have an AR for fixing it so that RECOMPILEDEFAULT=CHANGES is smarter and doesn''t recompile everything you''ve ever edited.'
