queXS 1.16.3 and 2.2.4 Released

Get queXS 1.16.3 or 2.2.4

This release fixes a bug where if the MySQL mode is set to strict, case sorting and assigning functions won't work. The DB session will now remove strict mode to allow queXS to operate normally, without having to change any settings in the MySQL server.
