    - Problems with files larger then 4 GB in the Filelogging Action. When you restarted the MWAgent, those files were overwritten from the beginning.
    - The Database Action (And maybe others as well) could fail with an unknown error (EventID 114) when the SETP Server received messages from older Clients (Version 1.3 and lower). This has been corrected now.
    - The password in the database action view was not saved if encryption was not enabled.
    - In the File Logging action it could cause high CPU usage when Custom Fileformat was used.
    - In ODBC write which always persisted the NTSeverity as a constant value (4) to the database.
    - In the SETP Receiver when older MWAgent Versions were sending messages to it, actions like the database action could fail in this case.
    - In the Filter Engine boolean filters were not handled correctly. This bug was introduced in 2.1 only.
