Quick question here on GeSortAndSearch: It is now legacy (deprecated).  Did anything replace it or is there a better alternative?

Thanks, Sebastian.  Change of use from GeSortAndSearch to BaseSort is not mentioned in the documentation.

Hi Robert,

yes, we realized this lack of information as well. Terribly sorry.
The good thing is, we already have been working on processes to improve the information flow and get a better coverage of API changes. Not saying, we can guarantee a hundred percent, yet, but we'll definitely improve in the future. Bad on the other hand is, we won't have the time to correct these failures for past SDKs.

No problem.  GeSortAndSearchEx worked (it was an older source code being re-purposed) but I have made note of BaseSort for future use. 👍
