Changes in this version:

Fixed bookmark bug in odbc_field_set_bookmark.bind_columns that caused display of control records to fail.

Fixed bug in epic_output_class.read_output_file_ann that lost track of columns if line length was > 256.

In table [Operations], "Useful Life Hours" is changed from small integer to (4-byte) integer because of overflow. Four new variables added to [Parameters] for extension of PRMT array in EPIC1102: "Parameter 92", "Parameter 93", "Parameter 94", "Parameter 95".

New field "Order" in [Field Operations] to control order of ops that share the same date or heat units (like Harvest and Kill). New variables "Date Planting", "Date Germination" and "Date Harvest" in [Output Annual Crop Growth].
Because i_EPIC has been compiled with a newer compiler, users will need to install Microsoft Redistributables for Visual Studio 2012 (vcredist_x86.exe).

PARM array limit for EPIC0810 increased from 82 to 84.

New version of EPIC0810 reads variables from EPICRUN.DAT: NBYR "Simulation Length", IYR0 "Beginning Year", IMO0 "Beginning Month", IDA0 "Beginning Day".

New variables "PARM(83)" throught "PARM(91)" in [Parameters]. New variable "Carbon Emissions" (TCEM) [Operations].

New variable "Carbon Emission Ratio" (CCEM) [Crops]. Correction to function that reads DWC output file for EPIC version 0810.
