Refresh entity list
Refresh entity list has been refactored so that it always run in a batch.
User-based service protection API limits
User-based service protection API limits help protect system performance and availability from harm by individual users or integrations. The limits are designed to protect the service when client applications make extraordinary demands on server resources through integrations with Open Data Protocol (OData) or custom service APIs.
In this release, the feature is optional and is disabled by default. In version 10.0.30, the user-based API limits will be enabled by default but can optionally be disabled. The feature is targeted to become mandatory in version 10.0.33.

Extended grid aggregation capabilities
This feature extends the current "totals" feature in the grid by letting users select one of four aggregation functions for each numeric column. Grid columns can now be configured to show the minimum value, maximum value, or average value in addition to a total. If grouping has been done in the grid, the selected aggregation function for the column will also be shown for each group.

Saved views performance enhancement
This feature helps improve performance when the default view is loaded at page load, by minimizing the number of times that the query is run. To achieve this result, the feature changes when specific parts of the default view are applied, so that all query-related changes are in place when the form initially runs its query.

Evaluating math expressions in numeric cells outside the grid
To help improve user productivity, numeric cells in the new grid have long enabled users to enter mathematical expressions directly in them. (For example, if a user enters=15*4 and then selects Enter, the expression is evaluated, and a value of 60 is entered in the cell.) As of this release, this support for mathematical expressions has been extended to numeric controls outside the grid.
Important: A new Allow row version change tracking metadata property has been added for tables. The default value of this property is set to No. Do not set the value to Yes, as this property is reserved for future use.
