---------Maybe it's in the new documentation ( all I found was 8.1 SDK docs? ), but, v8.1 hf->ReadChannel(BaseChannel* ) did not require an allocated BaseChannel where as it seems 8.2 does ( tested as part of my J1 import code ). Assuming that the pointer should be NULL when passed to the function because it worked in 8.1 ( contrary to how 8.2 works ). This was painful. Maybe others can benefit...

It will be in the docs that it is so, but there are no newer doc versions than 8.100 at the moment.
A small hint is given in the signature of the function, since the parameter type changed from reference-to-pointer to just pointer, but I guess that's a little hard to spot since it doesn't cause any compilation errors. (For the docs I use windiff on the api folder.)
