* Add container id, product name on extension point context of 

* The new attribute 'maxSize' of the tag 'simpleField' can be used to limit the
size of String fields used by sheet types, link types and product types.
By default, the maxSize is 256 characters.
It is important to define this attribute to optimize the database access.

* The new option -G, of the Instantiate tool, must be used to generated the
specific schema part for the different types defined by an instance.

* The new option -E, of the Instantiate tool, can be used to export the data

Possibility to redefine the SQL function of the case sensibility. The method 'lower'
is used by default to compare SQL terms.

* Support for access control on filter, called 'FilterAccess':
    ¤ defines control for a role, a type and/or a field
    ¤ defines control for a role and a visibility
    ¤ adding additionnal constraints (criteria) to the filter
    ¤ Reporting the filter's execution
* Many methods have been deprecated (see RELEASE NOTE file)

Major bug fixes :

* (Bug 955): Problem on gPM's options instantiation : at each instantiation
the options authentication and autoloking were updated with default values

* User's "Forename" field traductions (English and French)

* New attribute on DisplayGroup tag (on instantiation file) : isOpened. 
This attribute is used on sheet creation page.

* Filters criteria : It is possible to define empty criteria on simple string fields. 

* Include seconds in date-time format

* Problem with concurrence are fixed : the lock management becomes atomic and are 
out of transaction. So it's not possible to store it on cache, and method using
cache are removde of CacheableValuesContainer objects. The method
SheetService#getLock can be used instead.

* Improvement of Filter construction (retrieving usable fields)

* Filter instantiation: add operator validation at criteria and results fields creation

* Fix extended actions refreshing on the HMI.
