Many thanks to Matt Curland for his hard work in creating this release.

New features
        Oracle database import using the ODAC drivers (thanks to Jose Carlus).
        Data type verbalization now shows scale, length and precision. (If you have set the values).
        Recursive identifiers: Can now be viewed in the sample population editor (Warning this will crash other functions such as relational generation)

The list of bug fixes is in the file
Full details are in the read me file that is included in the .zip file

Summary Installation notes:

Extract the zip file to a separate folder before running setup.bat.
Before running setup, you should shut down all Visual Studio instances.

You must run setup.bat using administrative permissions on Vista, Windows 7, and later operating systems

Setup.bat will uninstall any existing version of NORMA and then install the new code.

Tests show that the uninstall/install process can take up to three minutes on a PC with an i7 CPU with 8GB RAM and an SSD.

For Windows 7, use Setup.bat "Run as Administrator".

Although the README implies that NORMA can be installed on VS 2005, the msi itself does a version check and only installs on VS 2008.

Matt, I've downloaded and started using NORMA for VS 2008. I've decided to use it in a course I'm teaching that starts January 2011.
