610 Calendar events can now be shown
in other table's records as related table
Previously when using the calendar icon in a table to create a calendar event, the event could not be viewed in the record from which it was created. A link was set up in one direction, so that in the calendar record view you could see the linked item, but not in the other direction.

This enhancement makes calendar entries available to the related table data type so you can now create a
related table in any other table that will show all calendar entries related to a particular record within that record.
