New Language Features Part 1
Beginning this month we will look at the new language features in detail: this will include features from 7708, 7709, and 7710, corresponding to WebFOCUS 820x. This includes new SET commands and enhancements to existing SETs, new simplified User Functions, FORECAST available as a COMPUTE expression, the new STRING datatype, sort performance enhancements, removal of limits, new amper variables, BYTOTAL and ACROSS enhancement, statistical python functions, HTML5 enhancements, and IF-THEN-ELSE enhancements.

Power of Multi-verb Requests
Multi-verb requests allow us to include more than one level of sorting and aggregation within a single request. Available in TABLE, TABLEF and MATCH, this functionality expands your ability to create multiple sort levels within your output, and generate true hierarchical data structures when use with HOLD FORMAT FOCUS and XFOCUS.
