    767765.. note:: Any corrections to models that may become known/available will be

    769767          release) 
     7694.2.0 - All systems 
     771The refactoring of the plugin model architecture means that some issues  
     772may be encountered if Save Project/Analysis files using plugin models  
     773created in earlier versions of SasView are loaded in version 4.2.0. 
     775For example: 
     777* on loading an old project file an error window appears with the error  
     778  *This model state has missing or outdated information* or *dictionary changed size during iteration*. 
     780   * if this occurs, try restarting SasView and reloading the project. 
     782* on loading an old project file all the FitPages and Graphs appear, but  
     783  only the SasView default model parameters appear in the FitPages. 
     785  * this has happened because plugin model parameter names have changed.  
     786    There are two possible workarounds: 
     788   * Install the version of SasView that the project was created in,  
     789     recreate the plugin in that version, then run 4.2.0 and re-load  
     790     the project. All being well, 4.2.0 will still compile the old  
     791     plugin. 
     793   * If 4.2.0 cannot compile the old plugin, the more tedious solution  
     794     is to use a text editor to do global search & replace operations  
     795     to change all the parameter names in the project file by hand. The  
     796     quickest way to see the *existing* parameter names is simply to  
     797     scroll to the bottom of the project file. To see what the *new*  
     798     parameter names should be, simply create the equivalent plugin in  
     799     SasView 4.2.0. In most instances, what was *p1_parameter* will  
     800     become *A_parameter*, *p2_parameter* will become *B_parameter*,  
     801     and so on.
