Use rownum with readByQuery to specify the rows that your query returns

When querying custom objects, you might want to limit your query to rows that you specify. The rownum condition returns a number for each row that readByQuery returns, so now you can reduce the amount of data returned to just what you need. For example, use rownum to verify if a query result will contain expected data by returning a set of 5 rows instead of all rows. Or you might want to target rows in your query that were added later; if so, you can select rows greater than a specified rownum.

Dynamic allocation by dimension values

A new option allows dynamic allocation of funds based on the values in the project and employee dimensions. For example, payroll could be allocated automatically based on the number of hours in the employee dimension. When an allocation definition with this setting is used, the system will apply a ‘per dimension value’ filter and generate a journal entry for each dimension value. Note that this is currently only available for project and employee dimensions.

Retainage balances in Order Entry Transactions for Project contract billing

A previousretainagebalance field has been added to order entry transactions to track the sum of all pending retainage amounts for a project contract. By passing in retainage billing parameters while creating an order entry invoice, you can bill retainage along with the typical project contract billing. The released retainage is accounted for in the retainage balance for the project and the project contract. For more information, see:
