Some time ago we have decided to provide a way for you to execute changes on many items in your model with a single button click, saving a lot of time when mass updates are needed. We have implemented the Batch Operations dialog and added there several operation types to choose from.

on your OpenAccess ORM download page. Of course this is only a small part of the new goodies that you can find there - we will present the rest soon in the next blog posts!
