The multi-row editing feature in Editor 1.5 required an update to the client / server data interchange format that Editor uses as the original format was not suitable for this new feature. This option can be used to restore the original format.

Please note that if this option is enabled, multi-row editing is not possible. An error will be thrown if multiple rows are edited with this option enabled.

If enabled, the data transform performed by enabling this option is performed before the preSubmit event on data submission and postSubmit on receiving the server's response. The result is that any existing event handlers that you have will still be supported.

An upgrade documentation detailing the changes is available and the new client / server protocol is fully documented.
