Release Notes

This release addresses the two open Issues (9539 and 9561).
The analysers now require Framework 3.5, due to the incorporate of an SQL Parser to find table names from SQL Statements.

The SQL Parser is from http://code.google.com/p/sqlformat/ and has been enhanced to deal with comment blocks more efficiently, and handle ? as a parameter marker.
It does not handle EXEC/EXECUTE statements, and complex SQL Statements (subselects) tend to fail to parse. This doesn't kill the process, just prevents the extraction of table names/procedure names from these.

The reports (for reporting services) probably don't work, as I haven't tested these, due to the focus on getting SQL Parsing functioning.

If you encounter any issues, or statements that don't parse, please raise them as Issues, and I will address them.
Any suggestions are welcome in the Discussions page.
