Data Inspect

See: Data Inspect and kJQ Filter documentation.

A simplified form now supports memory of previously selected serdes, multiple result-sets at once and the option to switch to classic mode

Upgraded kJQ filters support multiple predicates joined by logical operators and optional parenthesis for explicit precedence. Context-highlighting, auto-completion, a filter memory (press the arrow-up key to see previous filters) and quick query execution (hit shift-enter from within the kJQ entry field).
