5.13.00 Nov 4 2020

It is set via the property UnscheduleException on the scheduled event instance (kbmMWScheduler.pas)

is not found. If the field is defined as not null, then an inner join will be used, else an outer
join will be used.

- Updated kbmWMXML to handle mixed data. See blogpost.
- Added CollapseNil and AutoIndentCount properties affecting generation of XML from XML DOM.
- Added new TkbmMWXMLReformatter class which can reformat an invalid XML document according to
certain rules, and in addition it collects names and ids. Quite useful for visual XML editors.

MagTek magnetic card readers. Define KBMMW_SUPPORT_HID in kbmMWConfig.inc to use.

It can be given without arguments, in which case it returns the data directly, or
it can be called with one argument which is a property or a property path (property.property....)
to the specific subproperty of the source value, one wants data from.
- Improved LINQ AsStrings variants to allow for optional strings instance which is populated and returned
instead of a newly generated one.
