Release Notes for EA 4.10 Build 737

Added dockable Tagged Properties window. Provides the ability to quickly view and edit tagged values (custom properties) for:
     Elements: Including owned tagged values and inherited tagged values
     Object Instances: Show owned tags and those obtained from ther classifier
     Ports and Parts: Like objects - owned tags plus Port/Part "Type" instead of the classifier. Tags are included for all parents etc. of the Port's Type.
     Attributes: Including owned tagged values and those received from attribute type classifier (including inherited ones)
     Operations: Owned properties only
     Connectors: Owned properties only
     When over-riding an inherited property, EA copies down the tag to the child and sets the new value, leaving the original tag unchanged

Automation Interface changes:
     Element TaggedValuesEx gives a merged list of all tagged values owned or inherited by an element      
     Attribute TaggedValuesEx gives a merged list of Tags (EA.TaggedValue) obtained from the Classifier (and its parents) only. Owned Attribute Tags are not included. Tags with the same name as an Owned tag are not included in the merge list.
     Repository.GetCounts() has been added. This provides a very simplistic count of the number of elements in a selection of major tables.
           In this way you can detect additions and deletions (but not modifications). The returned string includes the following for each major area:
           ITEMNAME=<count of elements in table>:<sum of id's as checksum>;
     FlagUpdates property - read/write. Enable this flag to have EA update an internal flag everytime an update occurs. Query flag with the call below
     LastUpdate property - read only - <guid of instance>:<guid of update> Used from automation to determine if the model may have changed
     InstanceGUID property - read only: random ID assigned when an instance of EA starts up.
     Modified Project.ImportPackageXMI() to accept raw XML in place of a filename. Other options remain the same.

Added diagrams, attributes, operations and connectors to the dockable Notes window. Now it is possible to edit notes for these elements without invoking their property window
